Porch Sittin’…American Dreamin’

I love the 4th of July!!  I love red, white and blue, stars and stripes!!  I had so much fun putting this porch together!  I went straight to my favorite source to create fun…Oriental Trading, to find so many perfect decorations!

So, Welcome!  I hope you stay awhile!

A couple weeks ago, my girlfriends and I got together for our usual girls night, and thought we would do a little crafting!  Pinterest to the rescue!!

Really though, the best decorations are American Flags!!  Just stick those babies in your pots, or create a dramatic display like I did with this planter!

Red White and Blue Desserts

Well, here we are, two weeks from the 4th of July!  Not really sure how that happened, but here in the Pacific Northwest, the 4th symbolizes our kick off to Summer!  I love the feeling of pride when I see these colors.  I am currently prepping my 4th porch, which I will share soon, but in the meantime I thought it would be fun to give you some dessert inspo for that bbq you’re planning or the one you are attending.

With the internet, there is no reason to reinvent the wheel here people.  Pinterest has let millions of creative gems out there share their creations with you, and imitation is the best form of flattery..am I right??

So here you go!  I’ve rounded up a few fun patriotic sweet treats and a yummy drink for your celebration!
