Let Freedom Ring! (29 photos)
Fourth of July has always been one of my favorite holidays. The fireworks, barbeque, summer activities...and of course celebrating our great nation!
This year we hosted a get together with our friends. The day was filled with fun, food, swimming, laughs and of course fireworks.
I created an American Flag out of streamers as my focal point for the dessert table, it was a fun project but took some time. The picture below is from when I first finished it, unfortunately it fell and took a bit of a beating right before our guests arrived. A little disappointing, but we later used it as a photo booth backdrop. :)
I also created an area for the kids to decorate white Gable Boxes, which we later filled with hot dogs, veggies and popcorn for them to eat during the firework show. They colored the boxes and added star cutouts to show their patriotism. Each place setting also had an activity place-mat and a mason jar of berries.
There was a table of party favors for the Firework show. We had bubbles, water guns, glow sticks, sparklers, poppers, airplane gliders, balls, straws and patriotic tattoos.
I created an American Flag Fruit Tray for dipping in Velata Chocolate Fondue....It was the first time I tried Velata. It was fun and the dark chocolate paired perfectly with the fruit and marshmallows. Best of all, it was super easy to clean.
We had a wonderful day with friends and family.
GOD BLESS AMERICA!
