Summer is the perfect time to throw a party! Generally, you can host people outside in the warm weather where there’s more space for guests, entertainment and food. But throwing a party of any size is no easy feat. You can, however, make life easier when it comes to the food by making it a potluck or getting your party catered. Or, you can order a set of deliciously pre-prepped foods from QVC.

You may think of QVC as strictly a television shopping network, but its online shop is not to be overlooked. You can shop for fashion, beauty products, tech items, home goods and yes, food and wine. The retailer actually sells several popular food brands like New York City’s famous Junior’s Cheesecake and dishes by Food Network stars like Alex Guarnaschelli.

Whether you want to order steaks and lobster tails for grilling in the backyard or frozen appetizers you can pop in the oven, it’s all there.

Be sure to take a look at some of the top foods sold on QVC below. Warning: If you’re not already planning an end-of-summer party, you may suddenly feel inspired to.
