Backyard Beverage Station

It's June! When I think of June I think of two very important things: 
1. BBQ-ing out back 2. Father's Day

So with that said, I created a fun backyard beverage station just in time for Father's Day..and our Summer full of BBQ-ing days! I can't wait to show you how easy and cheap it was to create a fun little space like this out in your backyard. 

Backyard Beverage Station
I have a crush on World Market, we all know that. They have amazing different items..and just unique stuff. I grabbed this Stationary Bottle Opener there as it was exactly what I was looking for.

Backyard Beverage Station
Another thing World Market has loads of is great bottled beverages! I grabbed some of our favorite beers and of course some Dad's Root Beers in honor of Father's Day approaching (and something fun for the kids to drink)
Placing these in a Galvanized Party Tub found at World Market was just the last thing I needed for my little backyard space. 

Fun Backyard Beverage Station
I set up camp right next to the "Q" .. because that is were it should be. Right next to my man, the grill master. Ice cold beverages within arms reach ... Happy Father's Day Babe! 


Are you on the hunt for more fun Father's Day Ideas? Well my friends, you are in luck..take a look at all my friends ideas... enjoy!
