We hope these red and white projects inspire you to get into the spirit of Canada Day! If you are fortunate to be invited to a celebration gathering, consider a simple hostess gift: a Mason jar filled with fresh flowers or herbs from your garden. We’ve used the delicate and fragrant thyme from our garden in this gift, along with a tag that reads “Thank you for a wonderful thyme”. You can download the tag here.

Happy Canada Day everyone!
