Inspired By The American Flag.


A little decoration that was inspired by the American flag for your Fourth of July celebration! Many of us use these egg holders in our homes, and they also double as an adorable way to display your fruit! Happy 4th of July!!!

Edible Fireworks.


In our series for the Fourth of July holiday, we thought these fruit skewers resembled fireworks and were a fun way to get kids {and adults} to eat fruit. For our Hello Kitty party, we served fruit skewers with each child's name personalized on them, and this is a similar idea. Everything tastes better on a stick!

Fourth Of July Breakfast.


In our Fourth of July edible series, we thought this would be a fun way to start your day off! With the fresh fruit, it's also a healthy alternative for breakfast, and an homage to the American flag. Happy Birthday, America!!!

Fourth Of July Pancakes!


With the Fourth Of July coming up, we thought we would do four posts celebrating America's birthday. We will not even be in the United States for the holiday, and most likely will not really celebrate it since we will be in Thailand volunteering in a village where I'm sure they aren't familiar with the holiday! Back in the United States, it was always a fun time to grill with friends and family, as well as to watch some spectacular fireworks on the beach.

All of our four posts are related to food, since the use of fruit is such an easy way to acquire the red, white, and blue color scheme. My two kids love it when we make pancakes on a Saturday morning. If I'm feeling ambitious, I will even make the batter the night before, store it in the refrigerator overnight, and then make them for the family before the kids leave for school. Stacking pancakes and serving fruit in between the layers makes the Fourth Of July an automatic celebration.

Glitter Makes Everything Better.


I may be going a little overboard, but I have started adding gold glitter to everything that is stationary in our home. There's no reason, other than I just think it looks pretty and I love the extra sparkle it gives to my decorations! The funny thing is that my six year old daughter immediately notices the change, while it takes my two boys a little longer to catch on that slowly everything is turning to gold glitter!!!
