we enjoyed a wonderful 4th of july celebration along with our dear friends and their kids. brooke thoroughly enjoyed herself in the company of other children more than willing to hold her hand and chase after her. there was no shortage of yummy food, good company and lots and lots of fireworks!
i made a few treats for the kids that were a hit and super easy to make. seriously. all you need for the festive fruit wands are watermelon, blueberries, a star shaped cookie cutter (i used a fondant cutter only because they had smaller shapes), skewers and paper straws. and voila!
it was a lovely sparkly day!
and just for fun some pictures of last year's fourth.
