Celebrate the 4th!

In honor of all my special bloggy/scrappy buddies in the USA I wanted to wish you all a very


Being in a party mood, I thought I'd share some cool tips & tricks on how to brighten up your festivities, with some slightly more chic stars 'n stripes treatments for around the house.

Dolly up the kids crocs or your own with stars & rhinestones.

Ribbon rosettes tied with ribbon for napkin holders, colored sand or wax candles, pretty bread stick tins covered in appropriate paper.

How about putting that craft cutter to good use??? Foam star table decorations & coasters.

How cute are these stars 'n stripe parasols to make the most ordinary glass of juice festive.

Yum! food hey? Fruit parfaits, cupcakes & shortcake desserts.

And last but no least the patriotic apron. I know many of you are avid apron sewers & swappers. Try this on for size.......even the pockets are stars 'n stripes heehee!

Enjoy your day in the sun together, laugh lots & remember the privilege of freedom.
