Fourth of July Round Up

The Fourth of July for me is always about family…and celebrating this amazing country I live in!   We sit by the pool, barbeque, and watch the kids as they run through the sprinklers barefoot with their cousins.  It is pretty casual and the perfect getaway during a very busy season.  Of course, there is always blueberry pie!  What are you doing for the Fourth?  Do you like a casual get together or do you go all out?  I’d love to know!   Either way, I am throwing a little Fourth of July inspiration so you can get inspired.

This table from Spaceships & Laserbeams is perfect for a July 4th soiree. I love the blueberry pie jars featured above!

Cherry pies in a jar and red velvet cupcakes from Mirabelle Creations.

A bright soiree from A to Zebra Celebrations.  The star shaped watermelon is easy to make with a star shaped cookie cutter and guests will love them.

Fun festive marshmallows from the Marshmallow Studio.  Kids will love these!

PS – For more July 4th inspiration, look here and here.  Happy 4th of July from everyone at AAE.

This is dedicated to the men and women who serve this country and work so feverishly to protect us.
