4th of July Party Prep!

4th of July is just around the corner. Is everyone as excited as I am? This is my ultimate favorite holiday. Cookouts, warm weather, fruity drinks, sparklers, friends and family.

So how do I prep for these festivities? Well, I am no chef, so there won’t be a fancy meal. I find things more personal with DIY projects or Pinterest ideas. This year I have decided on healthy snacks, festive sangria, and a low cost table decor.

Here are a few of my favorites. What are yours?

July 4th Fruit Kabobs

What you will need: 
A set of skewers
Mini seedless watermelon
Star cookie cutter

What to do: 
1. Wash fruit and sticks.
2. Slide blueberries onto the stick with the pointed end of the skewer facing up.
3. Cut watermelon into 1″ thick slices. Using the cutter, create a star shape out of the watermelon. Place the star at the top of the skewer, making sure the pointed stick is not exposed beyond the watermelon.

2. Fill the empty space around the candle with red and white jellybeans.
