4th of July Party Ideas

Wow! Wednesday is the 4th of July, already! As usual, the summer is flying by. When I was teaching, I would count down the days left in summer, because I always had so much I wanted to accomplish. Now, I count down the days until cool weather returns and it's enjoyable outside again.

I recently created a new board on Pinterest titled Red, White, and Blue for all the wonderful ideas for the 4th of July and other patriotic holidays. Here are a few I've picked out to share.

Mini Berry Trifles

July 4th Layered Drink

Patriotic Ice Cream Sandwiches

Fresh Berry Trifles

Red, White, and Blue Sangria

Stars and Stripes Cheesecake Shots

Patriotic Cherry Pie

Note: I was unable to find the original source or the recipe for the Patriotic Cherry Pie. I had to include anyway, because it's so darn cute!
