It is officially only DAYS away from my favorite day of the entire year…the 4th of July!! I’ve literally been counting down since July 5, 2009, so you can believe me when I say I’m beyond excited. And obviously extremely patriotic.
While I’ll be celebrating on the beach all day, here’s some inspiration if you feel like throwing your own all-American birthday bash.
Invite: Hundreds and hundreds of patriotic templates are available online. A few favorites:
Decorate: Pretty self-explanatory, yes? Red, white and blue, flags, Americana etc.
Eat: You can’t go wrong with All-American classics like burgers and corn on the cob! Just be sure to save room for dessert.
When I was growing up my grandpa would always make a huge sheet cake decorated with berries to look like the American flag…apparently lots of other people do this too…

GOD BLESS AMERICA!!
