When it comes to hosting a party, none are bigger or more exciting than an annual Australia Day bash!
Whether it is a barbecue at home with friends, a cricket game and picnic at the park or a fun and kid-friendly pool party, the Australia Day celebration is as important to our people as presents are to Christmas.
As Australia Day 2019 draws closer, it is crucial that your party planning is well and truly underway! Keen to host your very own Australia Day party and not sure where to start? Here are our three top tips to planning the ultimate celebration.
1. The Décor
No matter what venue you decide on for your Australia Day event, the décor plays a crucial part in the overall ambience of the party.
Everything with an Australian flag on it becomes a must-have decoration, from the outfit to the stick-on tattoos and pool toys – if it has an Australian flag on it, it is a winner!
Wide brimmed hats, board shorts, Australian cricket or Wallabies attire and, of course, thongs are all part of the dress code (we really are the lucky country) and if you are feeling really patriotic, a blow up kangaroo will go a long way to finishing the party look off perfectly.
2. The Food
From a sausage sizzle to a freshly caught prawn – if it can be cooked on the barbecue it will go down well for any Australia Day party.
Our nation is blessed with some really great party food that is perfect for the day (and night’s) festivities. Sausage rolls, meat pies, lamingtons and the good old pavlova are all essential Australia Day menu items – though if you are looking to go a bit fancier, lamb cutlets are always a crowd favourite.
3. The set up
All of the above may be ticked off your list, but if you don’t have the right set up, your party could end up less fun than you imagined.
