Spring Entertaining

Can you feel it? Spring is in the air and it's time to start thinking about entertaining friends and family at home. Picture the scene. The weather is getting better, the flowers are starting to pop up and everyone is starting to get outside. It's the perfect time to host a springtime gathering.

First things first: the food and drink. Grilling isn't just for summertime barbecues. Spring is a great time to get the grill rolling and taste the fresh flavors of grilled meats, vegetables and seafood. And if you're in the market for a new grill, you can find what you're looking for at Sam's Club. There are charcoal grills, gas grills and hybrid grills which allow you to use multiple methods. If you're looking for menu ideas, consider starting the meal off with Member's Mark dips and a fresh vegetable platter. For the main meal, serve a variety of USDA-certified Prime Beef, poultry and seafood plus fresh grilled asparagus. Be sure to stock up on your favorite beverages, including plenty of non-alcoholic options like sparkling water and juice. Set the table with fresh flowers and keep things simple with disposable tableware.

Springtime is the best time to get your outdoor area looking sharp. From patio furniture to outdoor decor and accents, you're going to love what you find at Sam's Club. For a casual gathering, consider a variety of seating types. Not all the guests have to fit around one table. Check out lounge chairs, bistro sets and outdoor sofas too. If you're a DIY gardener, add some new plants in colorful planters to your yard or patio area, too.

Happy Spring from Sam's Club!
