Oh, Canada! You may have noticed that we’re celebrating a certain milestone this July 1st. Canada Day is always a celebration, but this year’s is extra special. We’re turning 150! This weekend, we’ll be celebrating with some friends and family at a backyard barbecue. Hubby will be grilling up steaks, burgers, and chicken basted with my famous blueberry barbecue sauce.
As an iconic Canadian institution for the past 65 years, Sears Canada has launched an exclusive line of patriotic gear perfect for celebrating Canada Day whether you’re staying home or heading out to the beach, campsite, or cottage.
For dessert, I’ll be serving some special red and white treats. Strawberries with whipped cream and a sprinkling of toasted, shredded coconut are a simple yet elegant dish, but I’ve got my eye on one (or both!) of these amazing Canada Day desserts as well. These strawberry rhubarb parfaits would be a huge hit, and my kids are super excited to help me make this homemade red and white Jell-O swirl ice cream. I’ve already picked up some of those cute maple leaf sprinkles!
Canadians will be throwing the biggest party of the year all across this great nation of ours, with celebrations planned in just about every city and town. After our barbecue, we’re planning to head out to our own local celebration for live music and fireworks. If you’re lucky enough to be in Ottawa for Canada Day, you’ll be at the biggest bash in the country, but if not, here are some of the other major Canada Day events being planned across the country.
I know many of you will be at the cottage or camping for the long weekend instead of in town, so check out Sears Canada for reasonably priced Canada 150 swag perfect to take the celebration with you to the campground or cottage. Celebrate on Canada Day and all year long (because we’re not about to limit our Canuck pride to just one day!) with fleece hoodies for the whole family (adults $19.97, kids $16.97), Canada ceramic mugs ($4.97), a retro-inspired Canada 150 metal cooler, ($69.97), and these folding chairs ($14.99 or 2 for $20.00).
