4th of July Ideas

Tomorrow we will be celebrating our independence as Americans and celebrating the bravery that led to our freedom.

If you are last minute like me, you are still preparing and decorating for the 4th of July.

I have some quick and easy ideas to help you get ready for the patriotic holiday.

All these ideas are so simple, I am not a perfectionist so everything I do is very minimalist. I hope you enjoy!

Patriotic wreath

I love mesh wreaths, they are literally so easy to make and everything comes from the dollar tree.

USA Blocks

I found these super cute stars at the dollar tree and painted them with letters on them to form the USA.

Flag Cupcakes

I love how this cupcake flag turned out! I just baked my favorite cupcakes, formed my flag and decorated them with buttercream to look like a flag.

Festive Cheesecakes

Who doesn’t love cheesecakes! These are so quick and easy and add festivity to your holiday table. Just mix up the no bake cheesecake, put them in cute cupcake liners and top with cherries and blueberries.

Red White and Blue Tier Tray Decor

Want to add some red white and blue to any table? I decided to decorate my tiered tray. I put some 4th of July Garland around the tray and added little decor items like jars filled with blue candy and a red mug with patriotic straws.

Red White and Blue Strawberries

These strawberries are the cutest and so simple. Just dip them in whipped cream, leaving the tops red. Then dip the bottom in blue sprinkles or you can add blue coloring to sugar. Super quick and festive!

4th of July Table Decor

These are super cute to add to your 4th of July tablescape. The dollar tree has so many vases or jars to choose from. You just add red white and blue sand or rocks, tie some ribbon around the vase and add a flag.

Charcuterie Board

I am still getting the hang of the charcuterie boards, but I think my 4th of July board turned out pretty cute.

I hope you all have a safe and fun 4th of July!


Social distancing and 4th of July

With the gloomy covid 19 vastly spreading, social distancing is more important than ever.

This year celebrating the 4th of July may bring more challenges as we try to maintain our distance from others and stay safe.

Parades and firework shows will be canceled to keep Americans safe. That doesn’t mean we cannot celebrate our independence day!

Here are some 4th of July ideas for your family while maintaining social distance.

Have a six feet apart neighborhood parade.

Get with your neighborhood and have a 4th of July parade while remaining six feet apart. Your kids are sure to enjoy decorating their bikes or wagons in red white and blue and parading around the neighborhood.

Fire up the grill

Summer time is the perfect time to fire up the grill and do some grilling.

4th of July Desserts

There are so many 4th of July recipes to choose from! Check out pinterest to find your perfect 4th of July dessert!

Backyard Games

If you can’t go out, just set up some back yard games and practice social distancing while having some fun! Pinterest also has some great DIY backyard games.


If you live somewhere fireworks are allowed, grab some fireworks and a lawn chair and have your own show.

Rent a water slide

Water slides are the perfect way to enjoy the hot summer days. If you are looking for a great company to rent from in the Waco area try Rocket Inflatables at
