4th of July Snacks and Drinks

Good morning!  Can you believe that it’s already half way through the year?  Like…this is crazy!  Before you know it, it’s going to be Christmas!  I might need to start on my Christmas wish list come to think of it…

But before we get lost in the thoughts of Christmas, we have to celebrate 4th of July.  I posted this last year so it is a repost, but I enjoy all of these.  Especially the first recipe, I have made it multiple times for not only the 4th but other holidays as well.  So I hope you enjoy and get some ideas for your 4th of July party!

Some of these are healthy, others are not.  And the one drink does contain alcohol.  These are your forewarnings.  But other than that, enjoy!

Navy and Turquoise With Just a Touch of Red

Happy 4th of July week! It’s so great to see all the red, white and blue all over town and the blogosphere! It really puts you in the mood for fireworks, bbq and fun times! I did a very simple tablescape for the holiday. I don’t really use red in my decorating, so I kept it very light. But I DO use lots of blue and turquoise!! So that’s what I went with!

Blue, turquoise with just a touch of red

I still kept it coastal and beachy too with the driftwood bowl and glass floats and seashells. july tablescape centerpiece 3 A few candles add to the atmosphere. july tablescape centerpiece 2 I picked up these white and red metal plates several years ago at a thrift store and the small turquoise ones are from the 99 Cent Store. The woven place mats I just picked up at Goodwill last week. I was so excited to find them! They are so perfect for the beach theme! july tablescape placesetting The napkins are just pieces of material I ‘borrowed’ from Lauren’s fabric stash. july tablescape placesetting 3 I love adding the red and white straws to the glasses! july tablescape simplicity The red watermelon was the perfect accent! Do you find, that once you cut up some fruit, it gets eaten much quicker? My watermelon was completely eaten by that evening! july tablescape watermelon I hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July! Please stay safe and enjoy time with family and friends!July tablescape july tablescape centerpiece Sunshine and Blessings
