Entertaining on Australia Day is all about joining in the celebration that inspires the nation on January 26. If you’re keen to host such a party, here are some ideas to get you started…
- If you’re close to your neighbours, or keen to build a better relationship with them, organise a street party so that everyone in your road or building can participate. Living in a quiet street or cul-de-sac can help if this is your plan. If you’re on a busy road, it’s a good idea to move the festivities off the street and on to a safer backyard or driveway.
- Traditionally, Aussies celebrate by firing up the BBQ at home or having a picnic at a local park. If you’re celebrating at home, give your party a ‘true blue’ Aussie theme and serve damper, pavlova and meat pies with the obligatory tomato sauce. Play a soundtrack of popular Australian music to give the party a true Aussie vibe and fly the Australian flag. Don’t forget to ensure that you have enough outdoor furniture to accommodate everyone and that there’s room in your backyard for a game of cricket. If you don’t have a pool, perhaps you could invest in an inflatable pool or put out a water sprinkler so that your family and children can enjoy some water fun if it’s warm. Don’t forget to put on a hat and some sunscreen!
- Serve up some lamingtons to your guests. Did you know that our Caesarstone tables make the perfect prepping surface for baking? They feature a non-porous and scratch resistant surface and are extremely durable. Best of all, they feature castors, so you can roll yours out to where all the party action is happening.
- Most importantly, enjoy yourself!
