Fourth of July Favorites from Around the Web

posted by Andrea | 07/2/2011


I absolutely LOVE four-day holiday weekends!

That extra day just seems to make the weekend last forever {which comes in handy if you have a bunch of house projects to finish!} However, this weekend, Dave and I will NOT be doing any house projects.

We are currently on our way to Chicago for a wedding and then headed to Wisconsin to visit his relatives for a few days.

It should be a busy {but fun} long weekend… and I hear his Grandma’s town in Wisconsin has quite the Fourth of July festivities {it’s a really small, rural town} so that should be fun to participate in!

If you are planning your own holiday party this weekend — or even if you just love patriotic paraphernalia — here are a few of my Fourth of July favorites from around the web.


Patriotic Table-Scape — wouldn’t you love to sit down at a table like this for your BBQ?

Fourth of July Pinwheel Party — this is such a fun idea!


Mason Jar Sipy Cups — so simple yet SO adorable!

Flag Patterned Fence Swag — I might try this on our front porch next year

Mason Jar Mugs with Utensils and Napkins Inside — Just one more reason I LOVE mason jars!


Fourth of July Ice Cream Sundaes — oh how delicious!

Mixed Berry Muffins — I think these can even be considered “healthy” because they have berries in them 🙂

Patriotic Redvines — even the LEAST crafty person can still put these party favors together.


Simple Patriotic Strawberries — dip in white chocolate, then in blue sprinkles — eat and enjoy!

Patriotic Brownie Kabobs — these look way more complicated than they actually are.

Patriotic Jello Dessert — so refreshing on a hot summer day.


I could go on and on with all these gorgeous red, white, and blue ideas — honestly, I could!

But I’ll stop here for now.

What are you’re plans for this weekend?
