Red, White, and Blue Cupcakes from Skip To My Lou.
Can you believe that it is almost July? This year has flown by so fast. I just barely realized that Sunday is the 4th of July. Due to a change in my work schedule, I’m off for the 4th, which was completely last minute. I think we are going to have some kind of get together or party that day, plus our Homeowner’s Association always has a fantastic fireworks display. But now, I think the panic has set in. I’ve been trying to find some great ideas for our little celebration, and I thought I would share some of them with the lovely people who come to visit me here. That is, if you haven’t forgotten about me, have you?
Cindy adapted the rainbow cupcake recipe that I posted to make these wonderful cupcakes. She is quite creative, and even added stars to the top.
I found this delicious Martha Stewart dot com recipe on Delish. It looks so easy to make, and tasty too.
My friend Kelly posted this summer salad which includes fresh fruit, and cinnamon candied almonds.
This non-alcoholic drinks screams summer. It sounds so refreshing. I’m sure you could find some booze to add to it also, like rum or vodka.
This is so simple. A vase, rice, and food coloring. I could even do this!
All you need is a star shaped ice cube tray and some colored juice.
This is a time consuming project, so start NOW. But the end result is quite awesome. You could use this for other Holidays also. Think of the possibilities.
I met Kim in Arizona, and I’m amazed at her creativity. I want her to come out here and plan all of my parties. She pays so much attention to detail.
I hope everyone is enjoying summer so far. It has been quite gloomy and overcast here in Southern California. We haven’t been able to get much pool time, as we would like to. I hope everyone whom is traveling also has a safe trip!
