Thank you for your visit, I’m joining:
Excellent, Mary! Lots of Independence Day inspiration!
WOW, everything looks wonderful – now I am really hungry.
Such a fun collection of ideas Mary! Lovin’ both the lemonade and sangria… Huh, I must be thirsty:@) Also lovin’ that the 4th is a Friday this year so I have a nice long weekend!
Your blog is so inspiring! need to head to the party store near me for some greeting cards and will look to see what they have available in patriot decorations. I would love to know where you purchased the patriot place mats and cloth napkins. You take simple ideas and turn them into elegance..what a God given talent! Thanks for brightening my Day! Independence Day is creeping up on us way too quickly. I can’t procrastinate shopping any longer.
Thanks so much Betty! The links to all the posts have the sources, some came from Kohl’s, some came from HomeGoods :)
We always celebrate the fourth of July big time! It is our anniversary! You have so many good ideas for food. Have a good week.
Thank you Mary~after this past week of entertaining family I don’t have an ounce of creative energy to think about the 4th of July~you have insured that my family will have some red white and blue treats now…the watermelon cupcakes are beyond brilliant, and something my GF little boys can eat. The burgers and red velvet cobbler are calling my name too, and all your fabulous decorations and touches are putting me right back in the party mood!
Love all the ideas, the Berry Caprese Bruschetta really looks delish! Definitely will try this recipe. Happy Fourth!
Still have the little r/w/b pails…I lined mine with foil and served individual “Calico Beans” in them. Everything was gleaming…and I was gleaning!! franki
Very inspiring and so red, white and blue in which I love! Hugs and blessings, Cindy
I get so much energy whenever any of your posts shows up…I just want to jump up and start doing something creative…
Have a wonderful 4th, Mary!
This is a wonderful compilation! I pinned a couple of the recipes for beverages. I’m always, always, always on the hunt for interesting and pretty new beverages to serve during the summer months! That lemonade is just pretty as a picture…literally! :-)
Wow, thanks for all the patriotic inspiration, Mary! There’re so many things to choose from and all of them are wonderful. xo
