I love patriotic holidays, and the Fourth of July is no exception! Growing up, my parents threw the best July 4th parties. Each year, their farm was packed with people, food, fireworks and fun. It was the place that everyone wanted to be to celebrate, and it usually turned into a pretty wild time. As a small child, I remember looking foward to the unmoderated sugar consumption along with the end of the night fireworks display. It was the best!
While I will not be throwing a party to celebrate this year, I thought it would be fun to create a small mood board illustrating the party I wish I were throwing.
As shown, left to right, top to bottom:
- Perfectly Decorated Patriotic Home
- Whimsical Patriotic Cupcake Toppers
- Fourth of July Flag Cake
- The Perfect Patriotic Outfit
- Patriotic Jello Shots
- Fourth of July Fruit Pops
Take all of these items, add in some family and friends, patriotic music (like some Sousa marches), yard games, grilling out, and of course, fireworks and you'd have the perfect July 4th party!
Nate and I were originally planning to leave town for the holiday weekend, but those plans have been moved till later in the summer. Instead, we are planning to escape the desert heat with a day trip to San Diego. Otherwise will be spending the rest of our time in the oven that is otherwise known as the Phoenix metro area (our forecast is for temps above 110-degrees all weekend). Needless to say, I plan on spending a LOT of time in our pool!
What are your holiday plans?
