Good morning! Happy Friday and a very happy 4th of July weekend to you. I am so looking forward to a 4 day weekend. Do you have plans for the 4th of July weekend? We are home for the holiday and will be going to a barbecue, heading to the beach with the masses, eating lots of tasty treats and watching the fireworks. By Monday we will be worn out and need to recuperate on Tuesday.

Get ready for your 4th of July cookout with this delicious and beautiful American Flag Sheet Cake from the Kitchen Treaty.
Just in case you missed my post yesterday for Crowd Pleasing Cupcakes and Cake here is a look again at the cake and cupcakes I made, with a recipe that starts with a cake mix. It is one of the best cakes/cupcakes you will ever eat! If I do say so myself.

I love these M&M Cookie Bars from Tastes Better From Scratch and I think if you add a bag of 4th of July inspired candies they would be perfect for the kids at home and whatever party that you are going to .

Then add an ironstone pitcher and make an arrangement with mini flags.
Go to the dollar section of Target and get yourself a little metal bucket, then visit the Dollar Tree and get one of these decorative balloon holders and you have an “firework” favor.
You can also get a few cellophane bags and fill them with M&M candy or licorice or whatever red, white and blue candy you like and you have a favor for your guests to take home or for you to snack on later while watching the fireworks.

This week Beth and Kristy featured the incredibly talented Kathleen Rivers Interior Design. I am in love with her style and design.
