This is the 4th of July at our house every year, the foods vary, however they are always red, white, & blue plus a Barbecue of course!
|Jell-O with a layer of Lemon Flavored Cream Cheese/Cool Whip Center, so good!|
There is always lots & lots of food!
|Shortbread Flag Cakes, Spiral Sugar Cookies, & Layered Jell-O, so fun to make!|
Great Friends of Course!
There are the fireworks in the street infront of the house, since the yard didn't work so well 1 year! OOOPS!
|Jell-O Marshmallow Pops, Kids LOVED them!|
The City Fireworks easily viewed from our driveway, near the treats!
|This cake actually looked like an American Flag on every slice, when it wasn't falling over!|
A movie sometimes the night before since nobody is sleeping as fireworks have begun already!
This was frost your own cupcakes, tri-color baked cupcakes, YUM!
Layered Jell-O, so much fun!
Stained Glass Jell-O!
My son actually asked me last year to teach him how to make this Stained Glass Jell-O, I've made it with Orange & Purple for Thanksgiving & it turned out well too!
|Patirotic Deviled Eggs|
I did these last year, the color came out much better this year, I was thrilled with this one!
We had family, old friends over & added some great new ones local and visitors from out of town that were staying at hubby's hotel, it was a lot of fun & I always love hosting this get together at our house! Can't wait to do next years, I have a schedule in mind to make it a little less stressful & less last minute prep to do, NICE!
