It doesn’t need to be complicated. A backyard setting is perfect for a casual event where guests are typically welcome to come and go throughout the afternoon and evening. To lend an air of festivity and help eliminate any worries about the weather, we offer a selection of striking and versatile tents to keep the rain off or provide shade. A 20’ x 20’ Marquee tent provides comfortable seating for up to 40 guests and installs quickly and easily. Or, if you have more of a stand-up affair in mind, several free-standing white market umbrellas placed around the patio and yard are convenient and tasteful.
If you’re hosting on a patio or around a pool, we carry acrylic cocktail plates and a selection of acrylic drinkware for a glass- and worry-free option that won’t have you resorting to serving your favourite Okanagan wines in red solo cups.
Other items you may want to consider:
-A slushy machine for self-serve icy drinks in two tasty flavours
-A propane grill, easy to use and makes cooking for groups easier and faster
-Charcoal BBQ’s and Pig Roasters can help take your party to the next level
-Coolers or ice tubs for canned or bottled drinks
-Tabletop wine bottle coolers for keeping the white wines at the perfect temperature
-Tables and chairs for guest seating and to hold food and drinks
-Linens in crisp, clean white or something bright and summery. To put a Canada Day spin on your event, we carry red overlays and napkins and red and white checked gingham runners.
-Garbage and recycling bins for easy clean-up (includes a bag!)
-Extra dishes and flatware, depending on your menu. Anything cut with a knife merits a real plate.
With kids out of school and endless days of summer fun ahead, the time is ripe for celebrating. Throwing a summer BBQ is a great way to bring family and friends together to celebrate a special occasion or simply revel in the sunshine.
