Gathering Up Some 4th of July Ideas

4th of July is right around the corner so I wanted to share some fun ideas I’ve found to inspire your celebrations. Around here it’s going to be pretty quiet as my daughters are on their own now, Sage is working and I’m pretty sure Skye will be out with her friends. I don’t think I’m ever going to get use to not being with my kids on holiday’s but sometimes that is just going to happen especially when they start their own families. I will decorate the courtyard as I always do and we will probably bar-be-que and look at Fireworks down at the  beach, but other than that we’re not planning any parties. Even though I may not be going all out, some of you might and I always gather lots of ideas for upcoming holiday’s. 4th of July is a fun one with lots of easy and festive recipes and DIY projects to decorate. Here are my favorites, all sources are linked.

I’m going to start with my all time favorite that I make every year, I also made it this year for our Memorial Day Block Party, my  All American Fruit Flag. This is so easy to make, no cooking required and always a big hit. If you’re celebrating with a block party look at this post and see my patriot theme from Memorial Day, you’ll see my super easy flower arrangements that are perfect for the 4th of July.

These Brownie and Fruit Kebabs look so good. Great for kids.

Couldn’t find the source to these Flag Waffles but I think they’re pretty self-explanatory. If you’re running off for the day and only have time for breakfast this will start you’re 4th of July on a festive and healthy start.

Here’s another fun breakfast idea: Flag Toast, again no source but self-explanatory (toast, cream cheese, jelly, fruit).
