we are in prime party mode at our house,
gearing up for the fourth of july!
the local fireworks are actually on friday, july 2,
so the festivities are starting early this year.
we live in a neighborhood full of young families, and luckily, can see the fireworks from our lawn...so most people end up at our house for the show.
i'm planning a little snack and beverage station for friday night
there's also a little fair going on in town that we will go too
and saturday afternoon muffy has invited all the
neighborhood girlies to a water party where we will have
the dora sprinkler
the double slip and slide
and the pool
i found some really cute recipes in this month's
food network magazine that i'm going to try out
a twist on the "flag" blueberry/strawberry cake
and a new, fun cranberry cocktail
(the sugared rim is actually pop rocks!)
and what to wear?
well, (this should be no surprise)
muffy and i do not have a lot of red, white and blue in our wardrobes
however, i did recently get this sweater from llbean
(thanks for the tip mFw aka prissy and preppy flamingo)
and this cute little tunic is from gymboree
this is my little sparkler from last year
(see? not a lot of red, white and blue!)
what's on your agenda this weekend?
