With the holiday weekend just days away, you have just enough time to gather up themed paper, ribbons, flowers, and food ingredients to celebrate the 4th in style. Some great ideas above, from Pottery Barn and Martha Stewart, feature drink bottles served in frosty mugs, fries served in parchment lined mini buckets, mini flower arrangements wrapped with ribbon, a ribbon embelished drink bucket, and of course, food flags.
Christi at P is for Party set up a lovely table with an elegant flower pomander, striped buckets with tea towels, and ribbon wrapped mason jars. She also shows how you can create a coordinating child-friendly table. See her post for more.
Visit Pottery Barn and watch the video on how to created this gorgeous and budget friendly “flag” flower arrangement using carnations and vintage soda crates. Then check out the latest video on Better TV featuring some fun “4th of July ideas” from Jeanne Benedict – my favorite is the potato salad served in paper-wrapped dixie cups!
Finally, here are some delicious dishes you may want to serve up: blue cheese sliders, chocolate dipped pretzel “sparklers“, and mini cherry pies.
