The 4th of July is upon us again. What will you be doing this year? I like to spend the 4th with friends and family cooking food, having some good cocktails and spending as much time outside as possible. As with most holiday’s around here we like to be festive, but don’t completely redecorate for the occasion. I simply switch a few things out for some reds and blues, and voilà, instant patriotism!
We used red lanterns as part of the decor at our rehearsal dinner four years ago and they have continued to prove handy. They add such a nice touch for summer entertaining, and holiday cheer in the winter. Super versatile, and a very effective addition. I also LOVE flag cake. It seems so simple, but I do love it. I had it for the first time years ago while visiting a friend in Colorado and have been hooked ever since. It is the perfect addition to any 4th get together.
Good luck in pulling together your celebration. If you are visiting someone else’s house be sure to bring something festive that will spread some holiday cheer!
