Hooray for the RED, WHITE and BLUE

July 4 will soon be here.  Do you have your decorations up?  BBQ party plans?  Any baking or crafts in the works?  I’ve been thinking about it and thought I would do a search on the internet. 

From Martha Stewart I found a few fun ideas to consider…

Stars Stripes Gazebo

If you have a gazebo this would be so much fun to sit in the bright white chairs with blue and white accent pillows and the paper lanterns hanging.  I also love the trim on the edge of the roof.

_icebucket3_xl I’m looking at the ice buckets and thinking this pattern of stars would look adorable on a number of things; wood tray for the special day, birdhouses, table cloth, etc. etc.

Flags_xl Flags are such a simple decoration but grouped together it reminds me of a freedom parade and sends such a strong message.

Yummy!  That’s what I have to say…YUMMY! Go Martha!

Sunset Magazine also had a few pics I liked…

Below is the best picture of all…
