Decorating is important. It'll all about the little touches. But the food is what needs to shine. I think we accomplished that at this past weekend's Canada Day BBQ.
After our prep work was done the guests started arriving and had a seat on our sunny patio to enjoy some veggies and hummus or a cold drink.
Make your own sangria station at the bar.
Dessert. What's dinner without a show? We made a tower of cupcakes and had them hidden under tin foil all night. After dinner we did an "unavailing". What a success!
Eating. Lots of eating!
Fireworks. We walked to the marina to watch the gorgeous Town of Cobourg firework display. We mostly just wanted to work off our dinner!
I'm not sure how we're going to top this next year...
