Australia Day Party Ideas!

Australia Day is the one day a year we get to relax and celebrate nothing more than simply being Australian! But how do you celebrate the day? Despite stereotyping and what people may think we do on this day off, there is a more sophisticated and personal way to celebrate living in such a beautiful country! At the Pink Frosting Party Shop, we are going to inspire you to host the most gorgeous and memorable Australia day lunch for your friends.

Australia Day falls in the most beautiful season, Summer, and with this comes the outdoor parties. Hosting the perfect Australia Day Party at your home is made easy with the help from the Pink Frosting Party Shop. Colours are easy for this one! You can go for the patriotic red, blue and white matching the colours of the flag, or team up the tradition green and gold or you can also use the combination of both throughout your decorating! An outdoor lunch in your backyard is a great way of getting everyone together to celebrate this holiday.

Start with your party decorations for your outdoor area with themed buntings, Australian Flags, balloons and lanterns!  Another great idea for decorating with this theme is DIY cork buntings to hang around the backyard. It’s really simple, you can buy packets of corks from a local supermarket or if you have spares lying around the house, needle a piece of string through each individual cork than tie those pieces to a longer bit of string five centimetres apart so they hang  down. Once completed you have yourself the perfect homemade Australia Day decoration.

Your table settings are where you can start really getting into the spirit of Australia Day. Stick to a simple table cloth so you can be really out there with your table centrepieces, try for a white, black or sheer gold table cloth with a simple table runner to match. Starting off with your centrepieces, think about the natural Australian environment and use this to your biggest advantage. By using ether a tin pail or glass vase and fill these with small gum tree branches and leaves, you can then place mini Australian flags throughout and hide mini koala bears off the branches for a cute little addition! Place balloon weights in the gaps of the table in between your centrepieces and let balloons float magically above your table while your guests eat.

Speaking of food! What do you serve at an Australia Day luncheon? Steering away from the BBQ bash you would normally throw as this time we are having a sit down lunch with a real Australian feel to it! Theming the food to Australia Day is simple; remember all the good things in life when you were a kid growing up in Australia? That’s exactly where to begin when catering. Start off with finger foods of vegemite and cheese sandwiches cut into delicate bite size pieces, as well as mini servings of beer battered fish and chips or mini burgers, placing them in the centre of the tables for people to help themselves to! Moving onto mains, homemade gourmet meat pies and sausage rolls served with luscious green salads, coleslaw and parsley butter potatoes, don’t forget the tomato sauce! Now comes the best part… serving up dessert, and what better way to celebrate Australia Day than finishing off your luncheon with fresh lamingtons and chilled lemonade served in gorgeous vintage milk bottles! For the serving ware, at the Pink Frosting Party Shop, there is a range of party plates, cups and plastic cutlery that will make your event that much more special and easier for you. To go all out on your Australian Flag décor, use these Australia Day themed party plates and themed cups to add a bit of patriotism for Australia to the table!

Send your guest’s home with a gift to remember with a party favour bag themed to Australia Day in both green and gold or red, white and blue! Fill party favour buckets with chocolate freckles, mini Australian Flags, tiny Koala Bears and a personalised lollipop in green or gold! Australia Day is about celebrating in the sun with your friends and family and being able to celebrate living in such a fantastic country! At the Pink Frosting Party Shop we are here to help bring inspiration to your next event!
