Canada Day, Eh!

I am so excited for Canada Day weekend so I am sharing some festive food, drink and décor ideas! Unfortunately, I am working on Canada day so it's not a real long weekend for me. Despite that, I am still looking forward to cocktails with friends, backyard BBQs, live music at local patios and fireworks on the beach!

Because I am working, I will likely stick to some simple red and white food and drinks but wanted to share some other awesome ideas;

These Canada Day pudding pops look so delicious and refreshing!

Or another idea for your tomatoes and bocconcini- add bacon and a skewer and you've got a Canada Flag

I love the simplicity of the tomato and bocconcini salad and how festive the colours are but I think I will be bring my favourite summer side to the BBQ I am attending- watermelon and feta salad. I knooooow, watermelon is more pink than red, but you get the idea :)

You can add basil or mint, red onion and balsamic vinegar or leave it as is. I love the sweet and saltiness of this fresh summer salad!

Lets not forget about the most important part of the long weekend--DRINKS !!

You can use your choice of cranberry juice or grenadine, sprite or club soda and your favorite red fruit . Don't forget the vodka!

This cranberry raspberry Canada Day cocktail looks super festive and refreshing. Or your favourite red wine sangria would do the trick :)

If you are hosting a Canada day party or BBQ, its pretty simple to add red and white to your décor. I love to hit up the dollar store and grab some mini Canada flags, festive cocktail napkins and straws and of course some red solo cups.
