Throwing a stylish Canada Day party for your friends and family is super easy. Red and white will rule the day, but if you want to put together a memorable party, having a unique take on the décor is essential. It is all about the details, and with the help of HomeSense you can throw a stylish party for Canada Day in your small space patio that will be as epic as the night’s fireworks. Read below all my tips how to throw a stylish Canada Day party in the city.
Widen Your Colour Theme Palette
Mix your staple decors of red and white with another colour to tone down the theme. When you are entertaining in a small space, Canada Day party décor can be overwhelming. To break up repetitiveness of the red and white theme, mix different patterns and colours. I added floral plates and napkins, introduced some hues of pink by having a floral arrangement as the centerpiece on the table, and I added a red and white stripe pattern table runner. These items were all under $35 at HomeSense that added elements of style to my Canada Day party. Another favourite addition is the festive maple leaf kitchen towel.

Think Outside the Box For Your Canada Day Stylish Decor
Elevate the look of your Canada Day party by thinking outside the box. Chances are your apartment has a small patio and your storage space is limited too. Purchase decor items you will use throughout the year, but items that are still focused around Canada. I love these Oh Canada cocktail glasses, (a steal at only $3.99 each at HomeSense compared to $5.00 elsewhere), the True North Strong and Free coffee mugs were also just $5.99 and the 4 set Sorry shot glasses I picked up was only $7 compared to $13.00 at other retailers. These items are a great way to throw a stylish Canada Day party, because you can use them throughout the year, and not just for Canada Day. To make the limited sitting area as comfortable as possible I added the ultra-comfy Canadiana themed pillows. So cute, eh? HomeSense has a great variety at such affordable prices. If you want to keep the kids entertained grab the Canadian Pacific Puzzle for only $14.99.

Mess Free Food and Easy To Serve Drinks
When you are throwing a Canada Day party at a small patio or balcony, I recommend you keep the food mess free and bite size. I love putting together tray platters with assorted bite size food. I got a beautiful tin tray from HomeSense (on sale for just $24) and I placed some food options on it. To add depth to the tray I grabbed the cutest mini serving basket set (just $7.99), and placed inside fig and prosciutto panini sandwiches. To make our Canada Day party even more enjoyable I filed up a beverage dispenser with red Sangria and placed it on the table, so that guests can easily grab a drink at any time. HomeSense has different types of beverage dispensers depending on your style and size of party.
Hope these simple steps will help you throw your very own stylish Canada Day party. I love all the Canada related items I picked up from HomeSense, and can’t wait to see what other cute items you pick up from HomeSense when you are planning your party.
