Oh the 4th!! Good ole’ American BBQs, fireworks, parades and endless celebrations! The 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays, although Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas will always be my absolute faves, haha! I do look forward to entertaining and enjoying the 4th every year! This year we teamed up with Crate and Barrel, one of the main stores I shop at for all things entertaining, to throw a festive 4th party! The 4th of July party inspiration ideas are easy and fun without being over-the-top. I absolutely love Crate and Barrel’s blog too, it’s full of wonderful ideas and parties. They also have a great wedding series with 100 Layer Cake, so check that out if you know any brides! AND of course, head to their blog to see the full party and a few of my favorite 4th of July recipes and ideas, including spiked lemonade and red, white and blue Jello-shots!
