Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July

To host a casual chic patriotic party, you need to think outside the box. You want to stay away from an overload of flag images. Be inspired by the color palette and the spirit of the celebrations.

I gather wonderful yet simple décor ideas to celebrate Independence Day. They are the best of what I saw this week on the Web. You can even use them if you are at the last minutes.

Drink Recipes

GlamDish featured wonderful drinks that would be great all summer. Cheers to Red, White & Blue! proposes a Chambeer (1 part Chambord, 3 parts beer), a Blue Mojito, a Blakberi Blues and a Blue Hawaiian.


Check out Rachel Ray’s Fourth of July feast for tasty recipes. Check out her Berry Cakes with Cinnamon Whipped Cream.

For more dessert recipes, check out red, white and blue desserts by Martha Stewart. The Red, White, and Blue Parfaits caught my eyes.


Martha Stewart suggested a Bandanna Table Runner. This is a cheap and easy way to get a festive table runner.
Rachel Ray suggests filling old blue cans or camping mugs with white and red flowers. Make a napkin ring by cutting a hole with a star-shaped hole punch. Tape the paper rings around red and blue napkins.

Happy Independence Day to all my American friends! Have fun celebrating the 4th of July surrounded by your friends and family.
