Time to Get Ready for The 4Th of July!!!

Tomorrow is the 4TH of July!!! I guess it is time to think about a few things like……

How to make my home wear our patriotic colors:

I know! I can add  a little red with my classic blue and white porcelain. Not typical, but understated and elegant, I like that.

Talk about being patriotic?! Wow!! I doubt that I would ever do this, but it sure is fun to look at.

A little red and white toile mixed with some blue plates would be another classic look for my home. Red toile napkins or a runner would be perfection.


  I am loving this ottoman with the Lucite legs. This room shows red, white and blue done in a classic way.

Navy walls when used with lots of white trim is stunning.

What shall we eat?........

We have to have the all American hot dog for part of the meal. I need a clever way to display them…….

This is a pretty cute idea. The hot dogs can make the stripes and homemade star potato chips will be perfect in the corner on a blue plate. I am not big fan of plastic dishes so I will probably use a white platter and a cobalt glass plate. The kiddos will get a kick out of this!!

Fun drinks for the adults, or make them non-alcoholic drinks for the kiddos.

 Lots of fresh fruit will be refreshing. This is a fun way to add a patriotic flare!!!

Watermelon and feta platter, perfect!!

Easy to eat Kabobs. Pretty clever, don’t you think?!

Something tasty for dessert!!

Simple and tasty!!

I wonder what I should wear????

Should I wear classic white and navy? Or……

….should I add a pop of red? Hmmmm???

I could always wear something long and comfy…….

Maybe we will cruise around in one of these?……

How about floating lazily along the water in one of these?……

This looks like it could be a lot of fun!! I think this is more my speed!!

When it is all said and done, I think I will probably  be doing more of this…….
