Red White and Blue All Over- Patriotic Ideas

Independence Day is one of my favorite holidays! I love the food we have at our BBQ, and I love the summer evening with fireworks filling the sky. In my search for Memorial Day ideas last year, I decided that everything for this holiday also goes great for the 4th of July and Veterans Day too! Here are some red white and blue patriotic favorites:

Fresh and bold flower arrangement
Red White and Blue Garland
Lifesaver fireworks
Confetti Fireworks (my kids would love these!)
Fireworks from paper towel rolls
Clothespin Pinwheels
Fireworks from Pringles Cans
Napkin rings from Slap Bracelets
All American Centerpiece with baseballs and croquet balls (LOVE THIS!)
Red White and Blue Tarts with Printables
LOVE THESE Cupcakes from Skip to My Lou- A MUST SEE!
. . . . .

Do you have a favorite patriotic craft, recipe or decor idea? I’d love to see it! Leave me a link in the comments section and I will hop on over and check it out!

Happy Summer Everyone!!!
