Being an expat means getting to know people from all over the world. Friends of mine are from Canada, USA, France, England, Switzerland, St. Lucia, Mexico, Sweden, and of course, Barbados. And while our little island celebrates its own Independence Day, it’s still fun to recognize the national celebration days of our various homelands throughout the year. Who knew that moving to a small island in the Caribbean would lead to multiple multi-cultural celebrations!
With Canada Day (July 1) and 4th of July celebrations taking place next week, I was thinking about all of the cool ideas that could be incorporated into a nation-themed party! Fun decor, food representing the country, a national cocktail, and perhaps a playlist that consists of nation-specific artists. Of course, if you can hire folks to play dress up and entertain your guests, that’s even more fun!
With Canada and US celebrations only days apart, and a shared color scheme, why not host a party celebrating both!?!
