Summertime is here... time to fire up your grill and invite some friends over for a backyard/pool party. Dust off those tiki candles from last year and put some new citronella candles in them to ward off unwanted insects. You can find inexpensive tableware and decorations at a store like Paper Warehouse, Target or Wal-Mart. Make it bright and vibrant to match the season.

Now, how about some bright and vibrant foods? For the main course, why not grill your favorite hamburgers, steaks, hotdogs or ribs. For some exciting side dishes, drinks, and desserts try some of the following or your favorites. Remember, the theme is "bright and vibrant."
