If there’s one day of the year where you can showcase every patriotic bone in your body: sartorially, interior design-wise, and culinarily, it’s July 4th.
We like to keep the kitsch down to a somewhat mid-level, but there are those who go a little cray-zee.
We’ve featured many Independence Day-themed posts on our “BA50s Love Summer Holidays” page, and here a few of our favorite most recent additions.
Add a white top to this blue and red striped skirt and you’ve got an outfit that’s perfect for an Independence Day brunch. The lacy texture adds some “fireworks.”
Navy slides and a blue cardi to warm you while you watch the fireworks will take this red and white dress to a whole new patriotic level.
When caszh is the dress code, denim and stripes are a perfect pairing. Perfect, we might say, for any day of the summer.
No jokes here, these Firecracker Hot Dogs are the bomb!
A splash of red and blue turns a ho-hum white cake into a fireworks display. Add some frosting and some extra color and you’ve got yourself a “dynamite” dessert.
You can of course make your own, but if simplicity is the name of the game for you over the holiday weekend, store-bought ice cream sandwiches dipped in red, white and blue sprinkles will be your go-to treat. Can you say, “easy, peasy?”
And because our Founding Fathers wouldn’t really want anyone to fuss as we remember them, here’s another simple, festive, “now, why didn’t I think of that” idea. Stars on simple, white candles to brighten up a dining or buffet table.
Spills don’t matter when your tablecloth is made of red, white, and blue streamers. They add a patchwork of color and flair and make clean-up a breeze.
Whatever your day looks like, we wish you a glorious and safe 4th!
