Check out these quick and simple Canada Day home decor ideas and get your home ready for the occasion!
They say us Canadians are humble, kind of subtle in the way we celebrate this great nation of ours.
Based on my preparation, I’d say it’s true because while I only bought a few flags, I felt like I was maybe doing “too much.”
But hey, I love this country and I’m proud to be here, so I stuck those flags proudly on my front porch.
Canada Day Porch Decor
I didn’t plan the red flowers for this occasion, but it worked out nicely with the red and white flag!
A few years ago, I revamped this whole porch with a front door makeover and added a mix of new and old items.
The door mat was a find from Hobby Lobby.
The plant rack was a thrifted find. The pot had foam inside with 80s style faux florals which I ripped out and now use for real flowers.
There is so much potential in thrifted pieces, I tell ya!
I love how the reds and galvanized pieces play off of each other across the porch.
You don’t need to do anything crazy, it’s as simple as buying flags at Walmart or Dollorama and placing them somewhere on your porch or location of choice.
Canada Day Mantel and Tray Decor
I kept the spring mantel decor up and simply added another flag to the space.
Moving on to the sunroom:
I used a tray and stuck another flag into a smaller pitcher.
I added a few DIY book scrolls to it to make it fuller and more complete.
The mug is an awesome find from Walmart!
It has writing on both sides of the mug, I took photos of both and love the way it turned out.
I think it’s a great Canada Day decor idea because it doesn’t take up a lot of space and it’s practical!
As a recap, here are some ways to incorporate decor for Canada Day:
- Red and white flowers
- Festive mugs
- Throw pillows
- Canada Day signs
- Baked goods
Speaking of baked goods, I decided to whip up a batch of red velvet cookies for the holiday as well.
These were so easy and I love the festive colors!
I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose those who shall govern my country.” – Former Prime Minister John Diefenbaker.
Have a fantastic Canada Day, and enjoy the process of decorating your home for this special time of year.
