Canada Day Celebrations on the Deck | A Year of Feasting

Canada Day Celebration BBQ - Collaboration with Giant Tiger - by

Canada is turning 150 years old on July 1st, and in honour of the big day, a group of Canadian bloggers has put together a series of Canada Day celebrations to inspire you! As part of our Year of Feasting blog hop, We’re sharing our ideas and recipes for pulling together a fabulous and festive Canada Day gathering, whether you’re expecting 150 guests or five. 

Giant Tiger has been generous enough to sponsor our summer edition of the Year of Feasting series, and we are thrilled to be incorporating some budget-friendly Canada Day inspiration and decor into our festivities.

DIY Patriotic Banner | Spectacular Summer Blog Hop #3

I hope you enjoyed last week’s first two posts in the Spectacular Summer Blog Hop series! Leslie’s charming summer party printables are on my to-print list, and Hey Fitzy’s crunchy granola recipe may just get a try in this house. Today we’re back, and Dazzle While Frazzled is sharing a simple DIY patriotic banner that my American readers will be sure to love for their upcoming Fourth of July parties! Never fear if you are a reader from elsewhere, because this idea could definitely be used for ANY national holiday by switching up the colours. 🙂 (I may just snag it for our big Canada 150 celebrations this July!)

I have to apologize for the lack of an official Flourish & Knot post last week: I was running like a chicken with my head cut off (there’s an image for you…) helping to get everything ready for my friend’s wedding. Well, it was all worth it because the wedding went beautifully and it was a marvellous weekend. I’ll have a new project for you later this week, once I’ve gotten some sleep! 😉

Free Summer Party Printables! | Spectacular Summer Blog Hop #1

It looks like summer may finally have arrived here in Quebec (we’ve had a few little teasers, but today is looking glorious and sunny!). I am inspired to really get going on my summer blog projects, and I’m excited to be teaming up with some of my blogging friends to bring you inspiration all summer long as part of the Spectacular Summer Blog Hop. 

Throughout June, July, and August, I’ll be one of 12 bloggers participating in a weekly blog hop, all about summery party ideas, recipes, crafts, and decor. Every Monday and Thursday, we’ll take turns sharing our summer projects, so be sure to check back twice a week for teasers to each participant’s post. 

Spectacular Summer Blog Hop | Check in twice weekly for all of June, July, and August 2017 for awesome summery inspiration from 12 great bloggers

This is all organized by Leslie from Playdates to Parties, and she is kicking off the hop with some charming and FREE summer party printables. I don’t know about you, but I’m planning to snag some of these sweet printable banners, labels, and cards to use for some of the parties we have planned for this summer. (For those of you who I’m meeting for the first time today, July is very much like Christmas in our family: there’s a birthday or anniversary at least twice a week!)
