4th of July round-up

I love the 4th of July! It is always such a great time of year. Time to BBQ, hang out with family and friends, set off and watch fireworks, and be grateful for our fabulous freedom! I have some 4th of July festivities happening this weekend as I am sure most of us do. Here are some great recipes I have found that can add a little spark to our parties.

I am loving this cake from Nestle. So patriotic and it doesn't look too tough to make.

These stars and stripes cookies look very kid friendly!

And these sparkler pretzels from Martha are just adorable.

If you are feeling a little more ambitious, try these Uncle Sam Ice Cream Cones. So funny!

If you want a cute centerpiece to go with these festive treats, check out Make and Takes colored rice centerpiece. You could whip this up with the kids in no time, and it would make your table look fabulous!

And don't forget some party poppers!! Happy 4th of July!
