Yay…It’s June. School’s out, the weather’s warm and aside from the fact that I’m not crazy about the sight of myself in a swimsuit, it’s time to get my tan on!!!
So it’s a little less than a month away and already my facebook/pinterest/rss feeds are a buzz with the good ol’ red, white and blue. It’s like my Christmas in July!! When you get down to the nitty gritty, I’m an American girl through and through and I love me some old fashioned patriotism. I mean I did teach high school US History for a reason:) I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again…The Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays. I love the stars and stripes. I love the songs and the flags. And of course, I love the food!! Honestly doesn’t everything taste better when it is red, white, and blue?? You know that’s right!!
There are so many amazing fun ways to decorate for the Fourth. Everything from bright and cherry to “God Bless America”. One of my favorites is the rustic “grand old flag” approach with classic stars and red and white stripes. This was the inspiration for this set of FREE Fourth of July Printables. I think these would be great for an outdoor BBQ or a family get together. Dress up the kiddos in some red, white and blue and take some family photos with one of the banners. Or even jazz up that patriotic dessert you are taking to your neighborhood block party. Have some good old fashioned Independence Day fun.
And of course, as always, I would love to see photos of whatever you do with them:)
