How to Throw a Ripper Aussie Day Party
On the 26th of January each year we hold an Annual Australia Day Party and Celebrate the Occasion with Family & Friends. Dressing up in Aussie Colours; Swimming by the Pool, Playing Cricket and cooking a BBQ. I’m going to share with you all some of the Fun moments from our Aussie Day Party 2017.
Fun Australia Day Games & Activities
A Pool Party is Mint Fun on Australia Day, there is nothing better than staying cool and splashing with mates to cool the hot Aussie sun. If you aren’t lucky enough to have a pool check out your nearest Beach, Waterpark or Creek for Water fun.
Cricket is an Australia Day Ritual in Our Family! The kids both Big & Small have loads of fun batting, bowling & fielding. If your yard isn’t big enough for a game, check out your Local park.
Other Fun Things to Do on Aussie Day
There are so many more Fun things to be done on Australia Day and your imagination is the only limit. In previous years friends of ours created a Massive Slip n Slide, it was a great way to keep cool if you haven’t got a pool and loads of bubbly fun! We had Turtle Races a couple of years back at my Sister in Laws the kids had quite a laugh guessing which turtle would make it to the edge of the square first. Other ideas include playing Frisbee, Boomerang/Gum boot/ Thong Throwing, Aussie Rules Football, Pie Eating Competition or even a Bush Dance.
Australia Day Party Decorations
I think every Australian should have a Flag hung High and Proud on Australia Day. We have a Couple now and it’s a Wonderful proud feeling hanging them up and remembering how Lucky you are to live in such a Blessed country.
Along with Australian Flags we also had Australia Day Pennant Banners (Bunting) and Poster Printshanging everywhere we could. Australia Day Party Decorations are Available to Purchase from my Store, Katie J Design & Events. Below is a collective photo of the Australia Day Party Supplies that I have in Store.
Australia Day Drinks
The Drinks Menu at Our Australia Day Party pretty much consists of Beer & Water. They looked pretty rad this year with the Australia Day Beer & Water Labels on them. If your not a Beer Fan you must checkout the Ripper Australia Day Cocktail List over at Delicious – so many Mouth Watering concoctions – Click Here.
Australia Day Food
Where do I start?! There are so many Great Aussie Foods that can be devoured on Australia Day. Here is what we served at our party.
Vegemite Sandwiches are an Aussie icon and were enjoyed on the day by big and small! Even Baby Paige got into them.
Meat Pies & Lamingtons
More Aussie Faves include the Humble Meat Pies and Scrumptious Lamingtons. They did not last long on the table!
Snags on the BBQ
It doesn’t get more Australian than a Barbie on Australia Day! My handsome Fiancee fired up the BBQ and cooked us a Gourmet Feast of Sausages on Bread. They were another Favourite of Baby Paiges who could not get enough of the Aussie Feast!
Koalas in a Creek
‘Koalas in a Creek’ were by far the Kid’s Favourite Aussie Treat for the Day and they were so Simple to make! Fill Plastic Cups with Blue Jelly & let Set in the Fridge. Once the Jelly has set add a Caramello Koala and an Aussie Flag for good measure. I used Cupcake Toppers from my Australia Day Party Range and they looked and tasted Fantastic!
