Outdoor entertaining: Making the most of Canada's shortest season

Provided By:

(NC)-Summers are always too short and many Canadians do their best to stretch out the season by packing in as much activity as possible. Often, this means hosting a backyard party or a barbeque at the cottage with friends. Here are a few tips to make sure that your summertime soiree is a success:

• Choose a Party Theme. Will it be a Garden Party or a Beach Bash? Whatever you decide, decorate and choose your food and drink accordingly for a party to remember.

• Send out Eco-Friendly Invites. Use a free online invitation service to invite your friends and keep track of your guest list without affecting a single tree.

• Set up an Outdoor Survival Station. Keep a table stocked with sunscreen and bug repellent so that everyone can enjoy the outdoor party.

• Crank up the Summertime Tunes. Hook up a Sirius Satellite Radio with its portable boombox to play continuous commercial-free music to keep your guests dancing all night.

• Light up the Night. Use paper lanterns to decorate your yard so the party can keep going even when the sun goes down.

And the most important thing to remember when planning a summertime party is to have fun. This is the most laid back season of the year, so make sure you are organized before your guests arrive so you can have a good time once they do.
