Long Weekend BBQ

Having celebrated Victoria Day long weekend here in Canada last weekend, and with Memorial Day long weekend today in the US, summer (though not official) is here – especially when it comes to entertaining. I love the thought of entertaining outside over the summer, and a BBQ seems like the classic choice. Here are some ideas for putting together your long weekend BBQ! Please share any thoughts on your can’t miss BBQ item!

Corn on the cob is a must!


Nothing like a good kabob


another option is just plain water (or sparkling) with slices of fruit inside for flavour (favourites include strawberries & orange…. or even ginger)


wood for decor when setting the table, many different desserts & pies (my favourite this time of year is key lime) – What about having a bake-off?

Chapters/Indigo (of all places) has some great summery serving items to give your event that special feel:

Instead of plastic cups, why not have these cute mason jar glasses (which will also keep the environment happy!).


Maybe even with some cute straws:


Or you can mix & match glasses & carafes for a more carefree feel:




Whatever your hosting decision, enjoy the long weekends and soak up the sun! It won’t be long before labour day long weekend is here and the leaves fall so revel in it while it lasts!

Wishing you the best of everything,

Champagne Moods
