The World Cup is here, and football fever has certainly hit my house hard. The Mister and J stayed up late to watch the first England match against Italy last night, and today we are celebrating Father's Day with a World Cup themed barbecue. The weather has been gorgeous all week and looks set to continue all of next week too so we'll be making the most of it out in the garden, and will enjoy getting in to the spirit of the tournament - win or lose! While A is at the prom on Thursday night we'll all be cheering England on against Uruguay and hoping they can pull off a win this time.
England party pack (which now adorns our trampoline) along with a fantastic purple giant outdoor bazaar bean bag so we can relax in the garden in comfort. Or I will be able to when I get the kids off it... Their limited edition St George Cross Flag bazaar bean bag is just the thing for those pre & post match garden parties and barbecues, as the quality design means it is 100% waterproof (since you can never predict the British weather after all) and big enough to seat two adults comfortably. It can of course be used inside too, so for those late night matches you will have extra seating options for your guests, nobody likes sitting on the floor after all!
The bean bag arrived in two boxes such is the size of it (giant, as described!), and it was a two-person job to pour in the extra bag of 'beans' from the second box (one person holding the bazaar bag open, the other doing the pouring), it takes only a few minutes and afterwards you have a great big comfy seat to lounge on in the garden, I am quite sure that A will be making good use of it over the Summer now she has finished her GCSEs.
We'll be enjoying a traditional barbecue menu of beef burgers and sausages, along with some pork & pepper kebabs, chicken tikka fillets and sweet chilli beef skewers. There will also be salad - but how much of that will be eaten by anyone besides me remains to be seen..!
Bean Bag Bazaar have pinned & shared some brilliant World Cup party food & decorating ideas on their Pinterest board, including a great recipe for guacamole - ideal for dipping those tortillas in during the match!
