4th of July for Less

July 7, 2011

4th of July was the perfect opportunity to have a few guests over to celebrate the holiday (and my birthday too!). I couldn’t resist turning it into a little backyard dinner party. In doing so I stumbled upon some fun ways to decorate for less and you know me, I just had to share!

We made Andrea‘s Sweet Flag Pastry , it was super yummy!
 Pellegrino is a fun element for table decor, it’s dual purpose as a drink and decoration.

As a tribute to my (and CH’s) southern heritage we had to have peach cobbler (apparently, Paula Deen’s been using my grandmother’s recipe for years, or there is only one true way to make cobbler. Either way, you can find the recipe here.).

How did you spend your Independence day?

    Love the table setting; so quaint! And the food looks really good too. I love that Miss Paula! My Independence day consisted of treating people at work with some holiday themed cookies (a super easy. laid back morning at work), lounging around the house in the afternoon, eating good ol’ American food (burgers, watermelon, baked beans, and apple pie), and watching the brothers and neighbors shoot off fireworks. Everything was concluded with a mad dash to avoid rather large raindrops. 😉 Such a great holiday!
