Marla's challenge: Take traditional Canada colours and make them chic. She did this by adding black and accents of chrome or silver to the red and white palette.
Drinks (red and white sangria) and snacks like juicy red gummy candy helped complete the theme along with chef Ramil Andaya's red and white, Canadian-themed canapés. Accessories like black place mats and black-and-white linen napkins helped keep the look sophisticated.
For all the tips and more photos, see the Canada Day Party Tips article and watch the video!
