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. 

These five tips will bring a fresh summer breeze to your next party.
