The temperatures are rising, the days are getting longer and lazier, and the beach beckons for a splash in the water. Summer is officially here and July 4th is just a week and a half away. Got any plans? We’re hosting a little backyard BBQ, complete with red, white, and blue decor, hamburgers and hotdogs, beer and margaritas, and inflatable swimming pools to keep the kids cool.
I’ve been collecting supplies along the way like mini flags, patriotic cupcake liners and those adorable little dollar pails sold at Target. I have no idea how it’s going to all come together, but I’m really looking forward to it!

I thought it would be fun to host an impromptu LINK PARTY to celebrate the occasion. Link up anything 4th of July related- it can be a delicious recipe, a crafty creation, or a home decor item. Anything to celebrate the red, white, and blue is invited!
The party will go live on Sunday evening at 8:00 p.m. central time, July 1st. I’ll keep the party open until Saturday July 7, in case you want to post how you celebrated July 4th this year. I can’t wait to see what you’ve got to share!
Let's be friends!

Oh wow, I'm so excited!! I will prepare my RED, WHITE AND BLUE tablescape soon, in honor of my country the USA. Thanks for the invite, I won't miss it! Have a great week.
Can't wait to see your tablescape- I have no idea what ours will look like yet- I better get on it!
Fun! I love Fourth of July decor and party ideas. Except, I always spend too much time looking at them and too little time actually making the stuff for my home. 🙂
