Loving Lately 🇺🇸

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)

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.

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!

  1. Great post… I do love me some 4th of July as well… And my favorite thing about you on the 4th is how you laugh out loud during the fireworks. The waffles look great. I could use them right now…

  2. Love these ideas! Tyler’s family’s big reunion happens every year on the fourth, so may have to steal some of these. Those popsicles are adorable!

  3. Those are all fun ideas! I love watching the fireworks on the 4th. The new house we’ve moved into is very close to where they set the fireworks off and we won’t even have to fight traffic this year, YAY!

  4. OK – so I have the flag, the cushion, the nails, sangria, pies, cakes can be arranged. Those popsicles are a thing of beauty – must find the recipe. Happy 4th of July Sadie! Love this post!

  5. Love it!! I also remember your mom doing a red, white, and blue potato salad one year–it was so cute and creative😀 Looking so forward to the 4th of July🎉🇺🇸🌭🎉
