Cute. Easy. Low time commitment. Those are my criteria for Pinterest. If I see more than 5 ingredients – X out of that immediately. If it looks like it will take me more than 30 minutes – Get outta my Face with that thing!
So when Eric and I decided to have a 4th of July Eve party, obviously I got a little Pinterest happy with all things Red, White & Blue.
Here are few things that I did that met all my criteria! And the best thing is almost all could be done the day before 🙂
Jello Fireworks from Kraft Recipes. These were a HUGE hit with the kids!
Patriotic Strawberries from The Idea Room. These were so easy and my daughter, Ella, helped!
My Patriotic Fruit Pizza from House of Hawthornes was the only exception from making the day before because I wanted the fruit to be fresh. However, I went ahead and made the crust and topping then refrigerated them. I also washed and cut up the strawberries. It only took me about 15 minutes (with Ella’s expert help again!) to top and glaze the pizza before the party. Score!
Easy peasy lemon squeezy as Ella would say! Finally I got to sit down just in time to enjoy our fireworks :
