Fourth of July Fun

Summer celebrations are always so much fun and, for us, the Fourth of July is the perfect time for the ultimate summer party!  Whether you're having a small family cookout in the backyard or throwing an extravagant block party for the whole neighborhood, we've put together some great ideas in this post to help you get started...

How precious would this bike be set up by the front porch to welcome guests, or with a sign directing them to the backyard?  The adorable 4th of July wreath, above right, is made using red, white and blue drink umbrellas and a small chalkboard.  We LOVE the bright tablescape shown above-left - doesn't it make you want to have a party!?

This fabulous table-scape is so simple to do - use a simple white table cloth draped with a red and white striped table runner or even a towel of the same pattern, pull out your party ware, grab a few vases from around the house and stock them full of sunflowers or even wildflowers from the yard and you're set!

This table-scape is just perfect - attention paid to every single detail. So simple to create, even using hand towels as the place mats. What a great idea!

These corn on the cob cupcakes are adorable and easy to make with Jelly Belly pieces! Let the kids help too!

A simple treat for your guests. Pretzel rods dipped in milk or white chocolate and rolled in sprinkles. This would also make a fun activity for the kids to do!

Hope all of you have a safe & happy Fourth of July!!
