Loving Lately: Fourth of July Ideas
I love the 4th of July. It is red, white & blue, backyard BBQ’s, summer weather and fireworks. Yes, it’s the day we celebrate our independence (for which I am grateful). It also has become everything I associate with a holiday; annual gatherings with family and food with aromas specific to the day. I’m a sucker for flag cakes and sparklers, and I succumb to the bug spray and driving home late- because I am all in baby! (Featured image courtesy of thewinthropcronicles.com)

Decorating for the 4th of July can be easy.
Dressing for the holiday can get as creative as American Pie…
Speaking of which, is it possible to have too many pies for a holiday? I think not.

Oh my goodness, then there is cake! How cute are these berry drippings?
I think I could handle this 4th of July Sparkle Cake, and can I just tell you how much I love the rustic simplicity of it?
Then you’ve got your traditional make the flag out of berries cakes.
While some 4th of July ideas are timeless… some are new to me. I mean I’ve seen the red, white and blue rocket ship popsicle; But I wish I was this creative! Homemade striped popsicles!!!?? I think you’re awesome!

Of course if you are looking for a simple idea to make a statement try this… (yes it’s Sangria, but I think it would look pretty in water too!)
If you can carve a pumpkin maybe…?
The crafty folks out there might want to try this jar made patriotic candle holder project from CountryLiving.com…
Of course you can’t beat this classic sparkler activity for kids and adults alike!
But more than anything, please be safe, enjoy your family & friends and have a Happy 4th of July!
