~Happy 4th of July and Simple & Sweet Fridays #174~

I finished decorating the table for the holiday.
A picnic basket filled with mason jars and sparklers for the celebration.
I used my blue and white calico dishes from Staffordshire, England.
My first set of dishes I brought when I was in my twenties.
Simple tablesetting with Red goblets.
The kids love white cupcakes with sprinkles.
A decorated bling bottle with flags displayed in it.
Colored star straws in a white porcelain crown.
4th of July Cookies.
I ordered edible wafer papers from Fancy Flours.
I made sugar cookies with fondant icing.
Edible glitter to add some sparkle.
They're always fun to make.
Star sugar cookies.
We always make extra cookies to give to our neighbors and friends.

For a cool summer treat,
Watermelon and Blueberry Popsicles!
Hope you all have a wonderful
~Happy 4th of July~
