I can’t believe that in just a few weekends we will be slathered in watermelon juice,
running around with sparklers and celebrating the birthday of this great Country.
I love to bring family together – because this Country was built on a foundation of love of God and family values.
We don’t go all out for the 4th, but I do try to decorate with flags and flowers and
table decorations to get into the spirit.
I thought I would share a few ideas from some of my favorite bloggers.
I love that all of these ideas are doable and don’t cost a lot, either.
That leaves more money to spend on sparklers.
Desiree at The 36th Avenue created this amazing printable and she is
allowing you to download it for free at her site. This would make a beautiful
statement on your drink table.
And speaking of a beautiful table –
are these painted mason jars not AMAZING?
Linda @ It All Started With Paint has them displayed with plasticware, but they could be
used with flower bouquets or to hold all those sparklers you’ll be
able to buy because you used these inexpensive decorating ideas. 🙂
Stars and Stripes Forever Baby!
The gals at Lolly Jane created these pots and I simply adore them!
I know! You kinda want to lick the screen right now don’tcha? 🙂
Little jars of Berryliscious!
Kelley from Eat. Drink. Eat. shared this simple but oh-so-cute
Burgers and brats are great…but you gotta have something to wash it
all down with right? Look at these drinks in mason jar mugs!
Down the Hatch!

PAPER! Who Knew!
Instead of using one plain color, mix and match several different patterns
to create this fun and festive look – with very simple clean-up.
Now that’s what I call a great party idea!
No matter how you celebrate – whether it’s with a large gathering of family
and friends – or just you and a loved one sitting quietly at home watching
fireworks on TV…please remember all the sacrifices that were made to
make sure that this Country first became the Land of the Free,
because we are also the Land of the Brave!
And most of all – please be safe!
God Bless America !!!
