fourth of july celebrationTuesday, July 05, 2016
I hope you all had a wonderful Fourth of July! We decided last minute to have a little get-together for our friends to celebrate the holiday. It was actually Jordan's idea to grill up some hamburgers and eat together before checking out the local fireworks. I love inviting people into our home, so i was all for it! I had to fight hard the urge to decorate every square inch of our house for fourth of July though.
And of course we sang happy birthday to America. I also made this cake last minute, and our friend's kiddo, Claire did the icing and decorating! Everyone thought I was pretty crazy for using sparklers. The happy birthday flag did go up in flames, but no one was harmed.
Here's my decor that I threw together for the party. These are the hydrangeas blooming in front of our house right now. The blue and red tones were perfect, so I picked some and put them in a vase. and I switched out the chalkboard to suit the occasion.
I am so glad that I managed to grab some photos during the party! I often forget to take any photos!
& below we got out the sparklers and poppers and had a good time in the front yard!
