Hot on the heels of my Oh Canada Cupcakes, I'd like to share a few more ideas for you sprucing up your patriotic parties this coming weekend. If you are celebrating July 4th in the US or Bastille Day in France, feel free to add in a little blue somewhere to make each of these ideas work for your national celebrations.
I love the idea of sending guests home with party favours, and these little butter tart pies are a perfect option. They're easy to make and work as both an individual dessert and a take home gift. I've shared my recipe how-to over on Party Savvy this month.
Edible centrepieces are a fun and easy way to jazz up your outdoor tables. Made with items I picked up from my local dollar store, this candy creation is a great way to get your kids involved in the party planning. The instructions are easy-peasy and candies can be eaten right off the topiary (if attached with toothpicks and not glue, of course).
Lastly, never underestimate the power of a paper Canadian flag. Purchased or made, these simple decorations can make any food beam with national pride.
Do you have any holiday plans this weekend? Are you hosting a patriotic party? For the complete Canada Day party head on over to Savvy Mom to see what we cooked up this month.
