Canada 150 – Party Ideas for the Big Day

This July 1st is a big year for this country as it marks 150 years. Surely, everyone is celebrating! While many people are going out to join big parties and parades, many are having their own private affairs in the comfort of their home. If you are planning on playing host this year, here are some cool ideas to get everyone saying, “Happy Canada Day!”

1. Canada Day BBQ

Canadians really know how to take advantage of the summer weather because most of us endure pretty tough winters! Having a Canada Day barbecue is a great way to be outdoors and enjoy delicious food.

5. Swag It Up!

Since it’s the big 150, why not go the extra mile? Give your guests some Canada swag, which can be an inexpensive added touch. For example, think mini flags, temporary maple leaf tattoos or treats wrapped up in red and white. We love this cupcake idea which makes for a great dessert idea or takeaway for your guests.
