Canada Day Display in a Tray


Canada Day falls on Friday this year making it a long weekend :)  I'm looking forward to having the three days off and hoping to celebrate our nation's birthday in style.  With that in mind, I wanted to add some themed decor to our home and created a Canada Day display in a tray.




The design I came up with has a rustic Canadiana lodge type look.

My white moose were called into action again. Last week, they helped celebrate Father's Day.

Cling-on vinyl stickers from the Dollar Store were applied to add to the theme.

Two large Canadian flags were set in a birch vase as a backdrop.

Faux white floral stems were placed in the birch vase as well.

In keeping with the rustic look, I used one of the birch candleholders Mr Delight made for me.

Beside it, I tucked some red-handled flatware in a flag-wrapped glass.

Of course, I rounded up various red and white dishware I had on hand.

I thought these canoe-shaped bowls fit right in.

A few maple-leaf-shaped confetti pieces were placed inside.

A mini-flag was perched on the end of the top "canoe".




This rustic lantern got a flag embellishment along with a faux candle inside.

The lantern sits on the left side of the tray.





July 1st is almost here.
  If you are Canadian, you better get your red & white on and celebrate!



Thanks for visiting...eh!

I love using trays for corralling things together and you've done a fabulous job! Who would have thought the dollar store would have such great rub ons? We made some of those birch candles a few years ago and they are fun. Happy Canada Day and thanks for sharing with SYC.
hugs,
Jann

All that you have here is so fun and whimsical and I just love it! The Moose, oh my. Couldn't be more adorable!

Loved your Canada display,it really looks so nice, and the moose is adorable,
and what a great idea for using those cling on stickers, it was perfect.

Is Canada Day like America's 4th of July maybe?? I have always thought the Canadian flag is so pretty. As soon as I saw your display the song O Canada
from the Epcot Canadian pavilion came to mind........such a pretty song.
I have never been to Canada but the pics I have seen it looks like such
a beautiful place.........

Nice Job and Belated Canada Day.........

Blessings, Nellie
