Tidy Up Your Grill

When you’re out getting groceries at the store make sure to pick up some extra charcoal or propane so that your grilling station is stocked.

Don’t Forget About Guests with Special Diets

Treat your guests with all the BBQ staples: hotdogs, corn on the cob, burgers and more! If you have any guests with allergies, make sure to buy a pack of gluten free buns or veggie burgers to accommodate them. Other dishes like mashed potatoes, grilled veggies or grilled fruits, such as pineapple and watermelon, are sure to please!

Stock Up On Disposable Products

When throwing an outdoor bash opt for disposable plates, platters, cups bowls and cutlery. Mozaik’s premium plastic products are durable and and they don’t sacrifice style. After your event you can either recycle or hand wash and store for future use, allowing you to spend more time with your guests and less time cleaning up!! Check out our products on Amazon!
