Canada Day Decor Made Easy

A friend of mine has thrown the most amazing Canada Day party every year. She will be downsizing from her family home to an amazing condo in Bridgeland Hills by Gablecraft Homes. She was concerned about how to achieve the same great party decor in a more compact space and I was excited to show her that it's not difficult at all.
I decided to pull together some fun and easy decor ideas in a red and white scheme. For the set up on Global I used a piece of wrapping paper as the runner. For the centrepiece I used a glass jar with some white candles and a layer of red gum balls on the bottom.
Making a signature cocktail for events makes the drink feel ceremonious. In a compact space it's easy to have a self serve drink station because a drink dispenser has a smaller footprint. There's unlimited berry punch recipes on Pinterest. I'd probably put in some frozen raspberries, strawberries and maybe even mint leaves. 
I'm a big fan of anything mini and thought that strawberry cheesecake served in mason jars would have a summer feel, and besides they're delicious. Plus you can make these the day ahead, refrigerate, and take them out right before the party- this will cut down considerably on prep time the day of the party. 

So there you have it. Wishing you the best Canada Day!
