July 4th Food Ideas

Big thanks to Hair On Earth for my bouncy curls, I have not worn my hair like that since I was a little girl and it was so fun! And to the make up pros at Kanvas Beauty,  I was nervous about the bright, bright red lipstick but I trusted them and they were right, it looked great on camera. And to Kayce Hughes for my beautiful blue dress.

 

So for this week’s cooking segment, I thought I would do something a little festive since July 4th is just around the corner. Can you believe it? How are we done with the first half of the year already?

I will be featuring my blueberry-lemonade flavored water because we are still in blueberry season around here and you can get blueberries from local farms like Blueberry Springs in Wacissa, Florida. I have a great recipe for Blueberry Pie here.

blueberry lemon water 1772 And my fruit and veggie popsicles because they make such easy and healthy party food. July 4th Food Ideas I will also show how to make super quick and easy watermelon star popiscles. All you do is cut out watermelon star shapes with a cookie cutter, stick a craft stick in it, place it in the freezer flat on a cookie sheet to freeze and voila, watermelon popiscles! July 4th Food Ideas   Frozen+Watermellon+Pops Penelope is obessesed with watermelon right now, but good Lord it makes such a mess. I usually make her eat it outside, naked as a jay bird, but if you go the frozen route then there is no runny juice getting everywhere and making a big ole mess! For more July 4th ideas, check out my board on Pinterest, which includes my easy July 4th yarn wreath tutorial.

    We are spending the 4th on a sunny beach in Florida. This will be a super treat for my 2 year old nephew. I’m also going to give your blueberry-lemonade water a whirl. I feel like I’ve cooled down about 10 degrees just thinking about it.
