4th of July Celebration Ideas
I love Pinterest. I’ve discovered that I am a digital hoarder of things that I am not good at. These pins inspire me to be better at crafting and get generally more into the spirit of holidays. Yep, my Pinterest boards are me in my fantasy world of Martha Stewart-like perfection.
I picked the recipes that seem manageable and a few are downright easy. I may even attempt for 4th of July next year!
Hoosier Homemade has an incredible board of fun 4th of July food ideas including this Berry Trifle.
This is a fun and not too difficult 4th of July breakfast from Lacey.
If you need a craft idea, here’s a gorgeous wreath!
I found the perfect chic outfit too if you are going to a fancy party. It’s from Zara, but no longer available. Let it serve as inspiration. Stripes, red accessory and white shoes.
If you need to bring something to a buffet, this fruit kabob platter is easy but makes you look like a rock star.
