Throw the Best Canada Day BBQ Bash!

June 26, 2016


Canada Day is just around the corner, and we’ve made big plans to celebrate with friends and family. If you’ve volunteered to play host, we’ve gathered the most important tips on how to throw the best Canada Day BBQ bash!

  • Go Potluck Style: Nobody’s got time to spend a beautiful Summer day in the kitchen. Ask your guests to each bring a dish to share – you’ll have plenty to feed the entire group, and a variety to satisfy everyone’s palate!
  • Pick Easy, Classic Recipes… With a Twist!: Don’t break the bank buying exotic ingredients you’ll only use once. Go simple with burgers and hot dogs or steak and chicken with pasta salad and a veg. Make your dish “pop” by adding different spices and flavours, like mango chipotle seasoning to your grilled corn!
  • Cold Cocktails: There’s no BYOB here, be a friendly neighbour and serve a signature cocktail. Get a great beverage dispenser (like the one featured below) and fill with ice to keep it cold.
  • Tunes: No party is complete without your favourite Summer jams! A wireless/Bluetooth speaker is perfect to keep the fun going all night long. Make your own playlist, or check out other free music streaming apps, like Songza or Apple Music, on your smartphone.

Don’t forget the necessities! Here’s a few items you may want to pick-up when planning your party.


1.Mix your signature cocktail and serve with the WholeHome Clear Glass Dispenser with Metal Stand (Sears, $49.99) and Cottage Mug Set of 4 Glasses (Stokes, $11.99).
2.King/Queen of the Grill. Char-Broil Kettleman Charcoal Grill (Sears, $229.99) and Remy Olivier Camper BBQ Set (Stokes, $29.99).

4.Light up the night with the Canada Collection Canada Day LED Lantern (Hudsons Bay, Reg. Price $24.99 each, now $14.99 each).
5.Set the mood with the House of Marley Get Together Bluetooth Audio System from The Source ($249.99).
