Don’t forget the drinks
Stock up on your favourite beer, wine and spirits from First Choice Liquor or BWS. If a cocktail is more your thing, try this refreshing Lychee Orange Blush Cocktail recipe.
For the non-drinkers and the kids, grab mineral waters and soft drinks or make your own mocktails and serve them in large jugs or drink dispenses from Kmart, Target or salt&pepper.
