We hope you’ve enjoyed this week extra full of posts! We thought we’d round it out with some inspiration for last minute party fun. In case you missed any of the yummy red, white, and blue posts this week, here’s a re-cap, plus a bunch of things I’ve bookmarked over the past few weeks and totally never had time to actually make. I’m not the only one who does that, am I??
Red, White and Blue Fruit Pizza: Click here for recipe
I was so excited when Kate posted this because it’s totally nostalgic for me. My mom made this all the time for summer parties. Love! If you’re in the Boise area, I’m going to whip one up this Saturday morning on ktvb channel 7 news, around 9:30
Grilled Chicken and Berry Salad: Click here for recipe
Definitely a crowd-pleaser for any pot-luck
Star-Studded Mini Pies: Click here for recipe
Use refrigerated pie crust and canned filling for a super fast and super impressive treat!
Try this easy and patriotic breakfast. Tint your favorite pancake batter (or use a mix!) with food coloring. I made these for my kiddos this morning and they were a big hit.
I posted the cute paper bowl craft yesterday, but I almost made these cute Candy Cracker Rockets, also from Martha Stewart. They don’t really “crack” but I think they’d be really cute favors. My kids would love to pull the tails off and find goodies inside.
Love these cute ice pops, super simple too. Click here for recipe
I kid you not, my heart skipped a beat when I saw these bomb pop cupcakes. Brilliant idea from Kristan of Confessions of a Cookbook Queen. If you haven’t explored her blog yet, go do it. But first push your keyboard out of the way because you’re bound to spit something out at least once when you burst into spontaneous laughter. Click here for recipe.
Independence day may soon be over but I’m totally printing this subway art out right now for next year- I love it! Click here to download from eighteen 25
Really, I could fill an entire post with cute little projects from eighteen 25. I want one of those genious girls to come to my house and scatter craftiness around. Like all of this:
Check out their site for lots of inspiration- and bookmark some projects for next year!
Lastly, since I’m always needing last minute ideas for the kiddos- fell in love with these no-baking-involved treats from Lisa Storms. Totally adorable.
For a great list of things that are easily adapted to red, white, and blue, check out this party I did with color themed foods like Colorburst Cupcakes, Dipped Marshmallow Pops, Dipped Pretzel Rods, and Glass Block Jello.
Hope everyone has a great weekend with lots of sunshine, swimming, bbq’ing, and all that good stuff. God Bless America!
