After the year that was, it’s a great feeling being able to come together and safely welcome those closest to us into our homes to entertain - whether it’s a backyard BBQ, dinner party or cocktail night, however many of us are a little out of practice.

So, we had a chat with renovation, style and home bodies Kyal and Kara about how they entertain at home and what tips they can share to help Aussies host the perfect get together with products from homewares, to wines, snacks, and outdoor furniture, all from Amazon Australia.

First up, Kyal and Kara share their tips on hosting a Great Aussie BBQ. Shop Kyal and Kara's curation of entertaining at home products here

Preparation is key

Make sure your food and drinks are prepped and ready to go before your guests arrive so you can relax and enjoy the afternoon. Things like pre-dicing veggies, marinating your food the night before and getting ice for the esky - these are simple things that can make the afternoon all the more relaxing. And definitely don't forget to check you have enough charcoal, or gas in the bottle! Nothing worse than running out of steam mid-BBQ.

Create a play area away from the cooking zone
