Celebrate our neighbor to the north with a Canada Day party

Date Created: 05/30/2012

Celebrate our neighbor to the north with a Canada Day party On July 1, 1867, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and the Province of Canada were united together to form the self-governing country we know today as Canada. This momentous occasion is celebrated every year with great enthusiasm and national pride. Whether you are of Canadian heritage, looking to show international unity or just want a good excuse to throw a party - celebrate our neighbors to the north with a Canada Day bash.

Send out party invitations made from red and white corrugated paper and have the emblematic maple leaf on the front. Tell your friends and family that you are hosting a Canadian theme party in honor of the nation's autonomy, gained more than a century ago.

Hang up red and white streamers and balloons to symbolize the Canadian flag. If you are partial to one of the provinces, you should fly their colors as well. An example of this would be hanging up blue and yellow curling ribbon in honor of the French-Canadian state of Quebec.

Don't hesitate to play the Canadian national anthem "Oh Canada." You can add additional background noise by playing tunes from successful Canadian artists that have done well in the States in the past and present, such as Celine Dion, Alanis Morissette, Justin Bieber and the Guess Who.

You should incorporate maple syrup into your meal. This could be as simple as going with a breakfast-for-dinner theme with pancakes and French toast as entrees. You can also make tasty desserts using maple syrup as a sweetener. Serve Canadian beers like Labatt Blue and Molson.
Put together fun crafts, using red and white paints, glitter or paper mache, so guests can create their own versions of the Canadian flag. Play fun yard games that Canadians like to indulge in. Get some hockey sticks to play your own lawn version of hockey or play a friendly game of lacrosse, which is also a popular sport north of the border. You can always stick to traditional backyard sports like horseshoes or volleyball - in the end, people having fun in the spirit of celebrating the country is what's most important.

Give away great party favors such as maple syrup candies or miniature Canadian flags that your guests will have to remember the evening by, or make mix CDs of the Canadian artists you played throughout the evening, so your party-goers can listen to it on their ride home.
