June 30, 2011

The holiday weekend is just around the corner!

We’ve pulled together some fun red, white, and blue fabulous items to get you in the mood for Independence Day! Take a peek…

  1. Show up dressed in style to your 4th of July picnic with this dress from Anthropologie! (It would be so cute with a flashy red belt and necklace!)
  2. These embroidered napkins from Pottery Barn are just what you need for setting the table.
  3. Baseball is about as American as you can get. Why not serve your lovely fresh fruit and snacks in these baseball serving bowls from Patina?
  4. Heading out to a picnic? This fold down blue table is just the ticket for setting up a snack bar. You can find it at Crate and Barrel.
  5. Pack up your napkins and silverware in this neat caddy from Crate and Barrel.
  6. Fire up this Premier Weber blue grill and throw on your favorite brats, veggies, and hamburgers.
  7. No Fourth of July picnic is complete without fresh strawberries and blueberries. Stock up at your local farmer’s market before heading to the lake!
  8. What a cute (and patriotic) tote bag to toss your things in on the way to the beach. You can find this gem at Anthropologie.
  9. Bomb Popsicles. They are an Independence Day must! Sounds like you’ll need them – it’s going to be a scorcher!
  10. While you’re preparing your holiday weekend goodies, don this cute red, white and blue apron from Patina.
