Sometimes we all need to take a break. Trying to balance friends, family, education and work can get hectic and tiring! This means that party planning often gets pushed aside because it is too much work, or you don’t have time. Never fear! We have the perfect party theme for you! Not only does it require minimal effort, but if pulled off, it can be extremely fun. What theme could we be referring to? Of course, it is the classic backyard bash. 🤠
If you grew up in Australia or have been here a while, you will know exactly what I am referring too! They are fun, high energy and reflect the Australian culture. Check out our list below to find out the essentials of a backyard bash!
A backyard bash doesn’t have fancy furniture. Heck, it doesn’t even have guest tables. However, a backyard bash has seating arrangements spread out around the venue. You could use hay bales, classic camping chairs, picnic blankets or even just chairs you found at the tip-shop.
If you have ever been too an Australian bush dance, you will know exactly what I am talking about. Dances like Strip the Willow are popular in Australian and European culture. Pairing bush music with classic Australian artists like Keith Urban will set the tone of the party. You want music that will encourage guests to let go and have a good time!
Australians are famous for their drinking appetites. If you are having a backyard bash, you MUST have Australia’s favourite beverage. If you are like me and don’t enjoy beer, you might want to offer juices, water, and other alcoholic drinks. However, beer is a must!
Any Australian knows that we don’t “throw a shrimp on the barbie.” We throw a prawn. And that is exactly what you should be doing! Have salads, steak, sausages, and bread. It is safe to say that are exploring our bogan sides with this party theme. Nonetheless, make sure you have a section of the BBQ where vegetarians, vegans, and other dietary needs guests can cook their food.
This essential is often forgotten at parties. That doesn’t mean that it isn’t essential! This becomes even more important when you are serving beer cans to guests. Furthermore, since a backyard bash has a serve-yourself approach, guests need somewhere to put empty cans, paper plates, and leftovers. Make sure to have a recycling bin as well as a waste bin! Imagine how much money you could make from the cans.
