Plan ahead – Planning the braai in advance will leave you with enough time to make all the necessary preparations.

Choose a Memorable Location – Deciding and choosing a location that means something to Mom is crucial as it will help set the atmosphere. The best location to host a braai would be your backyard as there are special memories made with your family as kids. Alternately, if you want to take mom on a braai adventure, there are many public places where you can braai such as a park or the beach. Just make sure the location has enough space for all of your guests to sit and enjoy the food and drinks comfortably.

Tip: Set up a canopy or umbrella to provide shade and protect your guests from the piping sun (or rain)!

Create a Relaxing Atmosphere – Create a relaxing scene by playing some soothing music, setting up comfortable seating, and decorating the area with flowers or fun props. Adding outdoor lighting, such as fairy lights, will give the environment a cozy ambiance.

Prepare the Menu – Just imagine buying and braaing food that Mom won’t enjoy! Therefore, you need to plan and prepare a menu that your mom will love. Popular braai favourites for Mom would include, juicy burgers, lekker boerewors, choppies or grilled chicken, served with some side dishes, such as potato- and green salads, grilled veggies or garlic bread.
