Fourth Of July Inspiration

The following is a guest post from Myra of My Blessed Life.

The 4th of July holiday is often quite a juggle fest {as are most holidays!} between parties and picnics, family gatherings and fireworks shows. However, taking time to thoughtfully decorate, entertain and bake {or cook} for holidays is rewarding both personally and for family and guests. Adding small touches of red, white and blue to your 4th of July holiday celebration is sure to build American pride!

Here are some of my patriotic favorites from around the web:

1. Bandana Mason Jar Cutlery | A Soft Place To Land

2. Pretzel Sparklers | Martha Stewart

3. Easy Patriotic Trifle | My Blessed Life

4. Party Pail | Southern Living

5. Red Hots & Blue Rocket Wreath |  Tatertots & Jello

6. Tin Can Luminaries | Crafts For All Seasons

7. Red, White & Blue Bottlecap Wreath | Our Family Attic

8. 4th of July Cake | I Am Baker

9. 4th of July Bunting Banner | Sugar Tot Designs
