This year marks Canada’s 150th birthday! If you live in Canada or perhaps have Canadian roots, it is definitely time to celebrate and there are no shortage of ways to show your Canadian pride and have fun!

Celebrate Canada With a Festive Floral Bouquet

Canada Day floral bouquet by Brant Florist

Flowers are perfect for just about every celebration. A bouquet made with Canada’s national colours of red and white is particularly appropriate for Canada Day. A beautiful choice is this Hugs and Kisses Bouquet With Red Roses. The colour scheme jives perfectly with that of the Canadian flag. This lovely bouquet is made up of red roses, red mini carnations, pink carnations and white daisy spray chrysanthemums. Beautiful greenery finishes the display and the flowers are delivered in a lavish red vase.

Celebrate Canada with these gorgeous Red Miniature Carnations and White Daisies. This aesthetically stunning bouquet is carefully arranged to provide the ultimate visual impact. The flowers are grouped in a “d” glass cube. The rich red mini carnations and pure white daisies are the perfect hues to celebrate Canada’s birthday. Place a couple miniature Canadian flags in these flowers for a patriotic touch and proudly display them in your living room window, on your dining room table or another visible area.

Get out and celebrate Canada’s 150th by attending a family-fun event. There are so many events and activities happening right across the country and we’ve picked out a few of our top choices:

1. Enjoy Rendez-Vous 2017 in Quebec City

Head on out to Rendez-Vous 2017 to commemorate Canada’s history. This event takes place from July 18 to July 23 with more than 40 majestic Tall Ships sailing through various ports to reach Quebec City for a few days of fun-filled family activities! The historic Quebec City is the central rallying point for a 7,000 nautical mile transatlantic race that honours Canada’s 150th birthday. This is an amazing opportunity to experience the gorgeous Tall Ships in person.

2. Take in the La Machine Performance in the Nation’s Capital of Ottawa

Ottawa has a multitude of activities planned to celebrate. One of the more unique events is the La Machine performances, running between July 26 to July 30. Ottawa will play host to the North American debut as part of the yearlong celebration of our nation’s 150th birthday. La Machine is a science fiction story with some truly spectacular mechanical creatures roaming the streets of Ottawa. There is even a gigantic dragon that breathes fire! Great for all ages!

3. Visit Canada Place in Vancouver

Vancouver will welcome over one million people for this year’s Canada Place event between July 1 and July 3 to celebrate! The Canada Place event is the largest Canada Day celebration, aside from those in Ottawa. Fun events are planned for all ages including a sure-to-be spectacular fireworks show, the Canadian Forces Zone, a citizenship ceremony and plenty of yummy food trucks!

Happy 150th Birthday, Canada!

Six Ways to Celebrate National Flower Day

March 21 is the big day for flower lovers around the globe. Even if you aren’t enamored by flowers, their presence will help you kick off the start of the spring season in the perfect way. Many elect to send flowers to someone special on National Flower Day. Others reward themselves with a sweet-smelling bouquet. There are all sorts of different ways to make this underrated holiday a memorable one.

1. Plant a Flowerbed

If the weather permits, you can celebrate National Flower Day by planting a flowerbed by your window, deck, pool or other outdoor space. Depending on your location, Mid-March can be the perfect time to start a lovely flower bed. Your flowers will have their full colors on display as we move through spring and into the summer. These hues will liven up your property, impress your guests and provide some lovely eye candy for everyone to enjoy.

2. Add Flowers to Your Beauty Regimen

Flowers provide much more than sweet smells and visual appeal. Pick up some lotion or soaps with flower extracts and your beauty will blossom. You can even add flower extracts to your own DIY soap/lotion recipes to give your skin quite the lovely scent. Incorporate some lavender in your bubble baths and you’ll have the perfect means of unwinding after a hectic day. If you would like a fresh new scent, pick out a fragrance with rose or jasmine notes.

3. Accessorize Your Look With Flowers


Flowers are quite the adorable fashion statement. Add a flower to your headband, pin one to your hair bun or sport a pair of tights with a floral pattern for National Flower Day.

4. Accent Your Room With Flowers

Flowers are eye candy of the highest order. Add some blossoms to your living or work space and they will immediately add a bright and cheery tone. Furthermore, flowers are a much more vibrant option to accent a room in your home. Add some orchids to a space in your home that is in need of some much-needed visual flair. Perhaps you have a color neutral space that could benefit from some vibrant daisies. Maybe your office or the study in your home is a little bare and would feel much more peaceful with the addition of lilacs.

5. Cook With Flowers

Most flowers have a lovely scent. Some provide a scrumptious taste. Add some rose petals to your jam with this Rose Petal Jam recipe and you will never look at flowers the same way again!

Good Luck Flowers: Carnations

Brant Florist St. Patrick's Day Flowers

One of our most popular St. Patrick’s Day bouquets contains carnations. This flower’s history dates back over 2,000 years. Carnations are rich with mythology, symbolism and folklore. There is no doubt that carnations are some of the most beautiful flowers on the planet. However, few know that they are also associated with good luck and pure love. The ancient Romans and Greeks used carnations in garlands and ceremonial crowns. Today, the carnation serves as a gorgeous decoration and is widely thought of as one of the luckiest flowers around.

Morning Glories

This lovely flower is said to bring about happiness, peace and good luck. Place a morning glory beneath your pillow and you just might enjoy a refreshing night of sleep that is void of nightmares. Morning glories feature a bell-shaped bloom which is partially responsible for their reputation for brightening one’s day. Native Americans once used the flower’s leaves to make tea to alleviate indigestion and headaches.

Sunflower

The sun flower follows the sun and is said to provide positive energy to those in its vicinity. This lucky flower makes a living space feel considerably brighter and safer. Go ahead and eat the flower’s seeds and you just might enjoy a string of good luck. Some say sleeping with sunflower seeds below one’s pillow inspires honesty amongst friends, family, co-workers and others.

Peace Lily

Peace lilies are said to reduce stress, generate soothing feelings, improve sleep and generally improve the lives of those who care for them. This flower is also a sign of good will. It features uniquely spiked leaves that exudes positive energy into a living or working space.
