Table for Canada Day


Canada Day is just around the corner
so I thought I would get a head start
on our celebrations with our table.


Red, white and maple leafs.
I started off with my white tablecloth with a cut out maple leaf border.


I added some red and then these little white mirrors.


And red candle holders that I found at an estate sale.


I couldn't have a Canada Day table without some flags.


And some red and white carnations take the center stage.


Some maple leafs as side accents on the table.


And of course red placemats and white dishes
with a little maple leaf accent in the bowl :)


Some red and white napkins in the wine glasses.


And my table is dressed for Canada Day!

  20. Happy 115th Birthday, Canada!!! I can remember studying about Canada Day in high school...or maybe it was elementary school. Whichever! I remember studying about the history of Dominion Day/Canada Day. Your table is perfect for the celebration! I love the little maple leaf accent in on the stark white dish. That really makes it stand out!!! Enjoy!
