Australia Day Celebrations

With only one week to go until Australia Day (January 26th), party preparations will now be in full swing.

Australia Day is is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate all that this wonderfully diverse country has to offer.  The sandy beaches, rugged outback, beautiful rain-forests, snowy mountains and amazing wildlife.

With the Public Holiday, it is a perfect time to celebrate with friends and family, and enjoy everything that Australia has to offer.

Australia Day Theme Party

If you havn’t yet thought of what to do for Australia Day, don’t panic – you still have time!  It’s easy to organise some simple food and decorations; you can have a party organised with little effort and on a cheap budget!

Think back to basics with Australian favourite’s and you can’t go wrong.  Serve some meat pies, lamingtons and pavlova and your guests will be sure to have a smile on their face!

I have made the decorating of your party easy with a range of party printable’s that I have designed for you.  Choose between the printable’s displayed here on in the previous Australia Day post found here.

    Hey! I love the cups and plates that you used for this party! Where can I find them? I am hosting a Aussie themed party and would love to have them for the party. I am also looking for the flag banner. What store did you find that at or is it a printable? thank in advance!

      Hi Jessica

      I actually bought those plates from my local $2 store (Cheap as Chips), but they are only around at the time of Australia day. The printables are available for free from the download link, but unfortunately they only include the water bottle and food tent labels. I shall have to add a flag banner for next year!!
