Its Canada Day on July 1st

I seem to be running short on time these days so am resorting to last year's version of my Canada Day tablescape.  Hope you enjoy seeing it again!


In honour of Canada Day on July 1st, I've created a patriotic tablescape in our little cabana.
Rather than state the obvious as I usually do when narrating, I'll leave it all to the words of our national anthem to take you through the pictures.
(I'll post a few details at the end)

O Canada!

Our home and native land,


True patriot love in all thy sons command


With glowing hearts, we see thee rise
The True North strong and free

From far and wide,


O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.


God keep our land glorious and free

O Canada! We stand on guard for thee.


O Canada! We stand on guard for thee.


Happy Canada Day!


Although we Canadians tend to be a little bit "laid back" in our patriotism I, for one am very thankful to be a Canadian and am happy to celebrate the fact that I live in this magnificent country!

Thanks for looking!  
Of course, I will be joining Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch. Thanks to Susan for hosting this fun time each week! Be sure to head over and check out all the other patriotic tablescapes!
The details...
Centerpiece - glass vase (from long ago) with flags wrapped in red napkin
"Canada" vases - created with the use of vinyl cling-ons from the Dollar Store, faux red/white roses inside with tall glass votive holder
Hurricane shades over Partylite pillar candle holders (from long ago)
White plates - "Maria" by Pier 1
Red plates - ? no name set of four (from long ago)
Stemware - created with the use of vinyl cling-on from Dollar Store
Napkins & Centerpiece tablecloth - Bandanas from Dollar Store
Gold-en flatware (from long ago)

Very cool tablescape. As much as I love Old Glory, I have to admit y'all have a great flag. You incorporated those flags beautifully in your tablescape.
