I’m back from hot, sparkly Las Vegas, just in time for the 4th of July! It won’t be hot here, but we can count on sparkly.
Years ago, when we moved into our house, we were thrilled to discover we can watch one of the large, local fireworks displays from the comfort of our back deck. I don’t think we’ve left home on Independence Day since. There’s food, sometimes music, and always bug spray. I’ve rounded up a few ideas today we might throw into the mix this year.
I like the simplicity of this Apothecary Jar from Makoodle. Great for the 4th of July, but subtle enough it could be left out year-round.
I never make Jello anymore. I don’t know why, because I actually like it. I think this American Flag Jello from Polwig is the perfect opportunity to jump back in.
There’s always that lag between dinner and dark enough for fireworks. This Fourth of July Balloon Dart Game from Roots and Wings Co would be a great way to spend that time.
I love dipped pretzels, so you can imagine how I feel about this Pretzel Americana from Poca Cosa.
I’ve attempted an American flag quilt or two in the past, but they don’t compare to this one from Etsy seller justsewquilts.
I’ve heard a rumor that soon toilet paper won’t have that little cardboard tube on the inside anymore. You better start saving up so you can make these cute Confetti Popper Rockets from Alphamom.
I think these ribbon sticks from A Girl and A Glue Gun would be a great alternative to sparklers for the little ones.
The thing I love about these 4th of July Shirts from Make It and Love It is that there’s a boy version and a girl version. Having one of each myself, I’ve always been a sucker for that kind of thing.
Everywhere I turn lately, I see Star Spangled Strawberries like these from From Glitter to Gumdrops. I think that means I need some.
Have a happy and safe pre-Independence Day weekend!
