Want a mini fireworks celebration with the kids? Try some fun sparkler candles in some red velvet cupcakes!
Food ideas could include some Canadian-themed barbeque foods such as burgers made from Canadian beef and topped with Canadian bacon. A fun & delicious side dish could be some poutine (now my tummy is growling!). You could serve cookies cut out in maple leaf shapes. Small Canadian flag food pics would be perfect on top of a burger.
