Red, White, and Blue Jello Shots
There are several pins on pinterest that show off red, white & blue jello shots, however very few of them include a recipe or how-to, so I thought it would be nice to share how I made my layered jello shots for my 4th of July party! They are fairly easy to make and were a big hit at the party! Pin now and save for next year’s 4th of July!

Celebration Pretzel Sticks
These red, white and blue Patriotic Celebration Pretzels are possibly the easiest dessert you can make. Fit for ANY celebration! The perfect combination of sweet and salty! Place on your next dessert table or give as a delicious party favor. All you need are pretzel rods, candy melts and sprinkles (colors to fit your celebration). Fill small buckets and line them down the center of your table to make a fun and eatable centerpiece!

Patriotic Potato Chip Candy
While this recipe does not require any baking, I like to use a mini cupcake pan to help the liners hold their shape and for easy storing while the chocolate sets. Setting up the cupcake liners is an easy way to get a child of any age involved. (I do separate the liners for him first.)
From: finding zest
The season is fast approaching for barbecues, fireworks (sometimes between family members), and fun! Whether you’re celebrating Memorial Day or getting an early jump on the 4th of July these simple, fun and easy to make, Patriotic Cones are sure to be a hit. Make them ahead of time to serve cold treats in, or bring the fixins and let the kids have a great time decorating their own red, white, and blue cone!

Summer Fruit Salsa
We’ve got big plans for the upcoming holiday. I’ve been planning my menu all week and I can’t wait to throw some meat on the grill and get this party started! My guy will be manning the grill and cooking up some brats, hamburgers, hot dogs, and chicken, and I’m in charge of …well everything else.
