It's Friday! That mean's time to kickoff Fourth of July weekend. Today's feature is a fun, crafty Fourth of July party inspiration for you, from Pizzazzerie. Simple details and creative touches are what make this party so much fun! Be inspired~
Local fabric stores often have a variety of patriotic fabrics, rather than buying a tablecloth, stop by and purchase a few yards of fabric to use as your tablecloth! It saves money and gives your more options!
Dessert skewers are such a fun way to do dessert! Especially for a backyard BBQ party. Buy a variety of fruits, (loving the red and blue combination of strawberries, raspberries and blueberries) layer them on skewers with minnie yellow cakes and yogurt pretzels! For an even more delicious combo, try dipping your strawberries in chocolate before layering!
How fun are these hotdogs! To liven up your serving table take simply take patriotic paper, cut it into triangles and glue to the top of a wooden skewer! This is such an easy craft, that will give your hotdogs and hamburgers a fun touch!
Look for fun way's to display your baked goods rather than just using a cake stand. Here cute red, white and blue cupcakes are displayed on a wooden shelving unit that was shaped like a canoe, adorable!
**Happy Fourth of July weekend**
