Happy Victoria Day, or should we say happy day off work — thanks to Queen Victoria, the "Mother of Confederation.” Once again, she heralds the start of the summer.
Finally, it is here — the first summer long weekend! Go out in your garden, have barbecues with friends and gaze at the night skies lit by millions of stars. To properly celebrate this happy day, it also needs a proper summer party set up. No worries, we have got you covered so that you are ready for the summer.

2. On your marks, get grillin’

3. Stock up your home bar

4. Decorate with stars
Hanging them at different heights brings an atmospheric vibe to your backyard. Our favourite for Victoria Day is the star chain, which brings together red and white. A lovely sight for every home!
5. Get warm by the fire
Gather around the fire pit and let the lovely Victoria Day end. Roast up some s'mores or just cozy up under a blanket for a little stargazing. If one night of stargazing isn’t enough for you check out our big selection of Herrnhut Stars and find your personal star.
Enjoy the festivities of the Victoria Day 2016 everyone!
