Summer is here, and that means it’s time for barbecues and other outdoor celebrations—any excuse to enjoy the warm weather. Are you planning a family get-together soon? Follow our tips and tricks for throwing a memorable party!
Duck’s on the menu
With so many mouths to feed, you need practical solutions that everyone will love.
Why not serve duck? Delicious and easy to prepare, duck is sure to impress your guests!
Our tip: prep ahead of time. Once prepared, duck can be safely stored in the refrigerator for two to four days or in the freezer for several months. Both our ready-to-heat and ready-to-serve products can help you stay on schedule on the day of the event.
Putting together a buffet spread of finger food and family style dishes is a great way to simplify prep work and save you time in the kitchen. You could even host a potluck and ask everyone to bring a small dish.
Want to impress your guests? Feature duck in your hors-d’oeuvres for a unique touch that everyone is sure to enjoy!
Here are a few ideas to get you started:
“This place looks great!”
It’s not a party without festive decorations! Colourful dishes, balloons, garlands, tables and comfortable cushions are essentials!
Create a warm and inviting bohemian atmosphere for your soirée by stringing up fairy lights and lanterns.
To entertain your guests, make a photobooth and have them take photos with whimsical accessories, so everyone can go home with a souvenir from your party!
Setting up a popcorn machine is a great way to satisfy the cravings of young and old and add a vintage vibe to your decor. For a twist on this classic snack, try our recipe for duck fat popcorn!
The finishing touch
Without a doubt, music is the finishing touch for any successful party. Why not make a playlist tailored to your party’s vibe? With the right soundtrack, your guests will take to the dance floor like a duck to water!
If you’re lucky enough to have musicians in your family, that’s even better! Ask them to bring their instruments for a backyard concert around the fire: a perfect ending to a perfect party!
We hope your family gatherings are filled with joy, laughter… and duck!
