Fourth of July Fun

Happy July 4th!  Hope everyone had a great weekend and enjoyed some Independence Day fun.  We enjoyed the 3 F’s: food, fireworks, and family!

Today we hosted an impromptu barbecue for our family.  I sprinkled some Fourth of July décor touches throughout the house.

In the living room, my usual summer centerpiece, got a spray of 4th of July flair:

The dining room had a Fourth of July table setting as well.

I added two red candles and a flag on my usual centerpiece to add a festive touch.

The kitchen got the star spangled treatment with festive American flag inspired placemats.

My mother-in-law brought over some beautiful Rose of Sharon flowers from her garden which I placed on an Independence Day inspired tray.

My sister gave me this lovely tray with a sketching of Independence Hall in Philadelphia, which I particularly like since we live near Philly.

We spent the evening grilling, relaxing, and playing the Michael Jackson Experience on Wii!  How was your fourth of July?
