Looking for Fourth of July ideas and inspiration? Here are recipes, decorating ideas, table settings and so much more.
Once upon a time, I was Betsy Ross.
I pulled a red wagon carrying Molly Pitcher and wore a ruffled cap and carried a flag and told America Happy Birthday and threw gum to the people watching the parade.
Never let it be said I don’t know how to rock a Fourth of July.
We are heading out to our local Fourth of July parade this morning. I’m so excited about the Fourth. I love the red, white and blue with all my heart. So to celebrate the birth of our nation I put together a little Fourth of July inspiration. There’s something for everyone.
A little DIY. A few projects. Table setting ideas. A yummy dessert.
I hope you check it all out and pin a few ideas for next year if your Fourth of July is already full.
And of course, a story (total aside: you knew I was going to say story before I even typed it).
Happy Birthday, America.
I love you.
The yummiest pie with the yummiest crust with the cutest stars.
Even if you don’t make it this year?
You will want to pin it for next year.
This cookie crumble Fourth of July dessert.
It actually came out of a mistake I made, but it’s so good.
You can put it together before your guests arrive.
Here’s kind of a version of the same thing, but with fruit.
I actually published this almost nine years ago and it’s one of my most pinned posts.
For good reason.
It’s easy to put together and it tastes so much better when it sits for a while (just add the whipped cream on the top at the last minute).

These would make the cutest addition to any party.
You could hang these mason jars off the posts on a porch or outside on the patio.

Sometimes all you need to decorate is one of these.
You can get them at the dollar store and turn them into so much more.

To all the servicemen and women who have fought to keep our country free and the stars and stripes flying proudly from sea to shining sea….
….I salute you.
I salute your sacrifice and your valor and your overwhelming courage in the face of grave danger and almost insurmountable odds.
You are what makes this country great.
Including this cutie on the deck of his ship.
