Honour Home Appliances by Celebrating Canada Day at Home

Honour Home Appliances by Celebrating Canada Day at Home
Host a backyard BBQ this Canada Day and show off some of your favourite home appliances at the same time.

If you’re like most Canadians, you probably spend Canada Day taking in a downtown parade, eating red and white cake, and enjoying late-night fireworks. However, your home appliances can actually help you step up your Canada Day celebration game. In addition to your usual routine, consider adding in a celebratory BBQ in your own backyard.


To make sure your backyard BBQ is an epic ode to Canada, we’ve compiled some of our best tips to help you out.


1. Prep the Home Appliances, Especially the Grill

To get your place ready for the July 1st festivities, give your home appliances, especially the outdoor kitchen appliances and gas ranges, a little extra TLC. It’s important to ensure they’re all in perfect working order before your backyard fills up with hungry party guests.

2. Stock up the Wine Fridge

In addition to celebrating Canada with some of the finest Okanagan varietals, get patriotic and consider serving up a few other uniquely Canadian beverages. For a cocktail, consider Caesars. Caesars were invented in Canada and have become recognized as Canada’s national cocktail. For the beer lovers, an ice-cold bottle of Molson Canadian should do the trick.


3. Set up Games and Activities for the Kids

Get the little ones into the Canadian spirit by setting up a few game and activity stations that showcase all things Canadian.

  • Finger painting – pick up some red finger paint and white poster board and let the kids paint their rendition of a Canadian flag.​ 
  • Best costume contest – Have your guests sport their favourite red and white attire to your party, then let the kids judge the contest.
  • Play dough Make (or buy!) red and white play dough and set it up at a little table for the younger kids. You can even toss in a few maple leaf-shaped cookie cutters.
  • Beanbag toss (cornhole) Although beanbag toss/cornhole isn’t necessarily a Canadian game, you can add red and white beanbags for a subtle nod to Canada.


4. Plan an Epic Feast

  • Poutine – there is nothing more Canadian than fries, gravy, and cheese curds. To bring Canada to your backyard feast, consider setting up a poutine station. You can add things like bacon, pulled pork, and jalapeños for a little variety.
  • Beavertails – For dessert, pull out the fryer and fry up this classic sweet Canadian treat.
  • Pacific salmon – for the main dish, grill up some Pacific salmon to highlight some of the wonderful seafood Canadians are privy to.
  • Lobster rolls – An East Coast classic, lobster rolls are not only delicious, but a great party food. Add your own spin on it to really wow your guests.
