There’s nothing better on a hot summer evening the spending some time outside. With the long weekend coming up, it’s time to break out the patio furniture, turn on the barbecue and invite some friends over. To help you plan the perfect long weekend BBQ, here are a few of our outdoor party essentials.

Spice up your life

Whether you’re bringing this as a host gift or looking for some new seasoning to add some flavour to your cooking, the Endless Summer Collection from Kanel looks great and tastes better. This summer-inspired five-packs find ways to spice, smoke, caramelize, and crisp every bite.

Stock up your bar

Having a range of spirits,  spritzed and wine will ensure that there’s something for everyone.  This summer, we’re loving the La Crema Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir with notes of cherry, cinnamon, floral, berry reduction, and toasty aromas, pairing perfectly with a salmon or lighter dish straight off the grill.

Enjoy a mixed drink without the mess, with a cocktail in a can. Choose between the Smirnoff Ice Peach Lemondate or the Pink Lemonade for a refreshing summer drink with only 100 calories, 0g of sugar and a bright flavour you’ll love on even the hottest day.

Get rid of the pests

There’s nothing that ruins a good evening more than a mosquito bite. Thankfully, technology has gotten a little more advanced and you can say goodbye to bug bites with small tabletop devices like the ThermaCELL Patio Shield.

Consider your light

From twinkle lights to motion sensor spotlights that you attach to your home, adding a lighting source will transform your outdoor space from somewhere that you enjoy during the day to the place that you unwind after work. Hampton Bay Solar Powered 17 inch House Shaped with Led Light is the perfect addition to light up a walkway or the Hampton Bay 4.6-inch Sienna Metal Lantern with Flameless Candle is the perfect tabletop decorative element to illuminate your space.

Think of your heat source

Like a true Canadian, as soon as the temperature creeps into double dights you’ll find us outside and basking in the sun.  But sometimes, those summer nights can get a little chilly. A chic yet functional firepit is a great way to warm up in the summer and extend the patio season a little longer.
