Pulled together all our red, white and blue...
Had a patriotic breakfast of red, white on blue...
Snacked on foods throughout the day, we don't usually eat at least not all in one day!! lol
I pulled together a simple Patriotic Centerpiece in the kitchen - easy to switch back for summer (just removed flags and switched cobalt glass for turquoise!) The Federal style - Bicentennial cylinder I thrifted a few years back has become a tradition to have out now each July 4th!
For the centerpiece:
The flags - I had.
The cylinder was thrifted in FL (I think in 2010)
The starfish and shells are also Florida travel treasures.
The blue glasses are from Goodwill AZ (2012) along with the recently thrifted basket-tray (2014)
The sandy burlap runner I picked up at HomeGoods - and makes a great neutral summer back-drop for the centerpiece...
Our flags were flyin' (and napping!) inside and out!
And although our fireworks display in Chandler wasn't as nearly as powerful of a patriotic display as seen in Brooklyn from the Macy's Fireworks in NYC - we did get out for a bit and actually felt a foreign substance while we watched - Drops of Jupiter called RAIN! (It hasn't rained here in AZ in over 115 days! It didn't last long (like the fireworks) but it was nice to feel again... however brief.
Time to get back to simple summer smoothies now!
How was your July 4th weekend? Did you go on a mini vacay? Or host a staycation at your home? Hope you had a Happy 4th!
Thanks for stopping by!
