We always spend the week of the 4th of July at the beach vacationing with my in-loves. Though I enjoy my time relaxing and eating a whole bunch of food, I sometimes day dream about having a really festive 4th of July party with neighborhood friends. Not that we really have neighborhood friends yet since we decided to uproot our lives and move 1,500 miles across the country, but that’s neither here nor there.
I love theme parties, and I love hospitality. I especially love the details of hospitality. Since I won’t be doing this myself, I thought I’d live vicariously, and plan a
pretend virtual 4th of July party by consulting my favorite friend, Pinterest. You’re invited, okay?
For dessert, I’d totally piggy back off of Quick and Easy, Cheap and Healthy again with this healthy Red White and Blue Jello!
This festive trifle looks really yummy, especially since I have a lot of grain-free friends.
I would definitely go with a bandana theme. Bandanas scream summer and remind me so much of childhood summer camp. I’m a huge fan of twine so the silverware would definitely be wrapped just like this.
We’d celebrate and beat the heat with one big huge water balloon fight.
My 4th of July party sounds like so much fun, doesn’t it? I thought so too. Are you coming?
