Happy Fourth of July!


Wishing you and yours a safe and happy fourth of July!





Patriotic Decor

You have all seen it, you may even be guilty of it, going overboard with color or themed decor.  With this being the week of the fourth I thought I would try to find a few beautifully decorated rooms in red, white, and blue.   This patriotic color scheme is classic and if done right, will stand the test of time.  Check out these gorgeous rooms.

4th of July

The fourth of July is one of my favorite times of the year to celebrate our freedom.   Time with family, toes in the sand, fresh freckles just to name a few.  Being a military spouse I can say red, white, and blue are my favorite colors and decorating for the holiday can be so much fun.  When searching ideas for this post I was surprised at all the cute recipes and decor ideas.  Here are a few fun food and drink ideas for you to try for your holiday barbecue or holiday family gathering and it wouldn’t be complete without a few fun activities for the kiddos.   Hopefully a few of these ideas will inspire you.  Click on the pictures below for links.
