The 4th of July has long been my favorite holiday because it's in the summer, there's another excuse to BBQ plus the added fun of fireworks! Unfortunately, this year I don't have any grand plans (mostly due to the case of strep throat I caught of Saturday, boo) however my mom held a Quilter's Guild picnic last Monday where I was able to try out a recipe I've been dying to make and create some beautiful flower arrangements for the tables!
As I was browsing On Demand I found a Lemon Blueberry Cake recipe by Martha Stewart which I had to try. The recipe was pretty straight forward and easy to make! You can get the recipe HERE!
Here's the finished product! Yumm
Once the desserts were set up I went to work creating a beautiful floral arrangement for the tables.
Using two stripes of different patriotic fabrics and some red ribbon I tied them around mason jars and added flowers from around the house. What do you think?
Anyone else have any good summer recipes? What about 4th of July decorations? The more I look on places like Pinterest and other blogs the more excited I get about having my own place to throw parties and decorate!
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your holiday!
