Nothing brings people together quite like a good meal! Whether you’re making big plans for the weekend or hosting a spur-of-the-moment get-together, all you need is a little advanced planning, some staple foods on hand, and friends and family to share the good times with.
Keep your freezer stocked!
Burgers, chicken wings, and hot dogs (and veggie-based alternatives!) can go from your freezer to your grill or oven at the last minute—no thawing necessary! Keep your freezer stocked and you can whip up a tasty meal to impress your guests at a moment’s notice.
It’s all in the sauce
Most store-bought marinades have a long shelf life, so keep a few on hand in your pantry for use in last-minute meal prep. You can use them for cooking meats or as condiments to add the perfect finishing touch to your delicious summer dish.
Lock in freshness
Some vegetables are even better frozen because they are preserved at peak freshness and can quickly and easily be added to any meal. Frozen corn is especially great in a festive and flavorful summer salad. Check out our recipe below!

Furnish with a purpose
Before your guests arrive, be sure you have enough seating on hand and ample storage to keep your space tidy and inviting. The Suncast Extra Large Deck Box solves for both—it’s perfect for storing cushions and blankets, and it doubles as a comfy bench for lounging or dining. The Suncast Prep Station is another great addition that can be stocked with all your outdoor dining essentials, such as plates, cups, cutlery, cutting boards, and more! It also offers plenty of counter space you can use as a convenient serving station—providing everything you need for an impromptu outdoor meal.
Now you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the party.
