Step 1: Put together a tasty menu
As the cliché goes, there’s nothing more Australian than throwing some prawns on the barbecue. This Australia Day, invite some friends over and celebrate in the best way possible – by enjoying some barbecued prawns, steaks and sausages poolside.
With a variety of electric barbecue grills within the Betta range, you can cook a sausage in bread that would rival even Bunnings’ famous weekend sausage sizzles. With barbecue grills from George Foreman and Sunbeam, your grilling will benefit from the range of heat settings, non-stick cooking surfaces and kettle-style lids offered by these portable grills. You can even use them to try our Herb and Garlic Crusted Steak recipe, which can be fully prepared and cooked in a matter of minutes and will surely earn the title of king, or queen, of the grill by your guests.
Come Australia Day, sweeten things up by making some traditional Australian desserts – like pavlova and ice cream cake. Whether you’re a passionate baker or a novice cook, anyone can tackle these iconic recipes – all you need are the appropriate kitchen appliances and tools. With electric mixers, food processors and ovens, you can enjoy the versatility and convenience Betta’s kitchen appliance range offers to your cooking process. For example, our Australia Day Ice Cream Cake recipe – which contains only 4 ingredients – requires a food processor to blend the Anzac biscuit crumb base and an electric mixer to beat the ice cream and lemon curd. That way, you can save time and effort with a little help from these simple kitchen companions.
Step 2: Make sure you have the right entertainment set-up
No celebration is complete without a good-time soundtrack to pump up your guests. Provide the perfect soundtrack to your party with some classic Australian music, like Midnight Oil and Crowded House. With portable Bluetooth speakers available from UE, JBL and more, you can listen to some of your favourite Aussie tunes from your Bluetooth-enabled device without the need for annoying cables. Compact in size, but big in sound, these portable speakers will take you on a sensory journey all day long without requiring charging and can rest easy knowing that they are made from water-resistant materials that make them suitable for use around the pool.
Anyone who has ever hosted a party knows that you need to have some form of entertainment for when things start to wind down, or when the weather heats up and guests want to move inside where it’s air conditioned. It’s times like these, where you just want to relax with your guests, that you need the right entertainment set-up. Whether you want to sit down to watch a good old-fashioned game of cricket or perhaps the latest blockbuster, you can experience them in full HD with Betta’s range of LCD televisions and home theatre systems. Equipped with Smart capabilities that allow you to access streaming services like Netflix and YouTube, as well as various HDMI and USB ports that you can attach to external devices, you can watch some of your favourite home videos with your loved ones.
