This weekend will be full of fun, food, family and friends. Why not a little friendly competition to make your get-together even more fun?
Baggo is a perfect, easy-going game with some friendly bean bag tossing. Make up your teams - kid/grownup teams get the whole group together or you could do a kids competition and then get serious with grownups only. Make up brackets on a piece of poster board to stay organized. Once you have a winner, get out the big prize.
What prize, you ask? Well, this week get a little gift basket together for the winner/s. If you have a kids competition and grownups competition, have two baskets for each winning team (one for each winning team member). Kids always love candy. You could add sparklers, a red, white and blue beach towel, a mad libs book, etc, etc. For the grownup team winners' baskets, how about some grill accessories - spatula, small pot, skewers, or a six-pack of pop/other beverage, candy, more sparklers, etc. Make everything in the baskets red, white or blue.
Don't have a Baggo set? Well, my good friend Anthony makes custom Baggo boards and bean bags. Any team or theme. Personally I would want one with some flowers, or maybe a fleur-de-lis wallpaper-like pattern in tone-on-tone aubergine... Well, you get the point. Get anything you want. Below is Anthony's site.

I think my fleur-de-lis idea just made my Christmas list...
