I’；m sitting here in Utah on my sisters patio discussing 4th of July Ideas. We’；re trying to figure out our menu， who may be stopping by， what refreshing beverage to make etc…；.meaningful gifts for mom
Then it occurred to me that I could just look up recipes and a few more 4th of July ideas right on my own blog! DOH! ？ ？
All？of my 4th of July ideas are easy. Many being printablesunique gifts for grandpa， and printables always make entertaining easy! It’；s not hard to be patriotic with simple ideas.
And one of my newest favorite ideas are the Printable Sparkler holders. I think these are perfect to have ready and hand out. I love them!
Let’；s talk food.
Every 4th of July needs a good Pasta Salad. We’；re trying to decide between my Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad or my Pesto Pea Pasta Salad. Or maybe my Broccoli Pasta Salad. It’；s a tough decision.
For beverages， we’；re going for a sparkling water with lime and mint. It’；s the closest I’；m going to get to a Mojito here in Utah. Or maybe just good ole Limeade.？It’；s always great for a crowd. Then of course there’；s my favorite Brazilian Lemonade.
Here’；s to a safe and fun 4th! Whatever you do， make it delicious!
Our backyard is like a wildlife refuge right now. We have so many birds and squirrels, there is constant movement and activity. I’m curious how they’ll enjoy this Homemade Bird Suet Recipe.
