Happy Fourth!

Happy Fourth of July everyone! I'm looking forward to spending most of the day with family and going to a friend's BBQ in the evening, but before I go, I wanted to share some fun Fourth of July inspiration I discovered on Pinterest!

Some delicious-looking snack options:

I have a not-so-little "thing" for chocolate dipped strawberries. I always want to buy one at Godiva, but they run something like $8 a berry. So needless to say, I'm VERY excited by this patriotic strawberries.

And after my run-in with cake pops, I've been thinking that marshmallow pops might be the way of the future. Check out these lovelies:

A good dress never hurt anyone, and this patriotic number is no exception:

I like how it's fun and flirty and color appropriate without being over the top.

I'm also in love with the fun decor ideas I found. Pinwheels galore:

and tags for beverages, oh my!

And last but not least, I LOVE a good tablescape.

This one has such a feminine feel to it despite the bright primary colors:
