July 4th Decorating

I had fun decorating my house for 4th of July.  I didn't go overboard this time either! I've only got 1 box full of decorations and I hope to keep it that way. (gotta stay out of Hobby Lobby this month!)

I have 2 sets of patriotic placemats. I like these the best...they go cute with the table runner....
I bought this patriotic quilt and pillow at Kohls one year on clearance...check out my favorite store!

 Isn't this the cutest cake you've ever seen? Check out Babble's Family Kitchen.

Here are my 4th of July cupcakes....the frosting was 1 c.marshmallow creme, 1 c. cool whip, 1 small brick cream cheese....yummy!
My doggie keeps trying to bite the leg off my Uncle Sam...naughty Brucifer!

Babble 6.2125 Decor2 199x300 Fourth of July Centerpieces You Can Eat
Cute candy centerpieces with silver glittery chenille stems placed in the middle.

We got the Statue of Liberty in N.Y.C. when our family took a D.C. & East Coast trip one year.....
DON"T go there in August....it was so hot! Yuck!

My front entry table....I need a hat for my little Lady Liberty....This pic is of my nephew Garrett in the U.S. Army...
I used to babysit that guy when he was just a newborn baby! 

Decorate the table
These looked really easy so I thought I'd try them too! They are from LOTS of cute ideas at All You.
I love putting candy in seasonal colors around my house....only problem is my 2 1/2 year old granddaugter eats it all in one gobble!

Patriotic Decor
Front Yard has to look all American too! My uncle Sam windsock is out there somewhere....
I've got my whole family here because Devin is home for a visit from Chicago. We had a Friday night gathering with lasagna and salad and we'll do Sunday dinner with roast beef and mashed potatoes.

Here he is with his little baby daughter Lena. She smiles nonstop all day long.
Dev is beloved by his two little nieces, Marisa and Meg. They like being silly together.

Yeah, silly for sure! But they had a lot of fun blowing bubbles and letting off fireworks.

Here's a close up of the front door wreath I made and I cut out the little tole painted bear...
Johnny and me went up to Bear Lake and rode our quads over the  weekend!
The aqua blue water is really amazing...and the view!

It's beautiful on the trails on top of the hills...you can see the whole world...and that BLUE WATER!!!

Hey, I am in red, white and blue! Didn't even PLAN that! But I DID plan on the raspberry shake!

If you can't decorate....at least sprinkle some flags somewhere around your house!  I'm proud to be American.  Happy 4th!
