This banner by Simple As That would be such a nice touch either indoors or out (on a non-rainy day). We love the reuse of of book pages and even magazine pages would also look great!

A Red Garden Chair

Although this chair by Redo It Yourself Inspirations would make a great compliment to any backyard Canada Day celebration, it’s really beautiful for all year round and would add such a nice pop of colour in the yard in the winter.

Red and White Painted Stacking Rocks

Show off your Canadian spirit with a set of your own stackable red and white painted rocks. Leave them in your garden to enjoy all Summer long.

Mason Jar Centerpieces

Mason jar crafts seem to be everywhere and this is such an elegant one from Love Create Celebrate. You could add any seasonal flowers. We also love that with the addition of a green one the jars could be used for Christmas as well.
