I wanted to share some ideas for adding fun and creativity to your holiday weekend!
My husband is retired from 20 years of military service, and our home is decorated in red, white & blue....all over the place. Here's just a peek..
I have been given many nice things also.
I love dressing up food for patriotic holidays too. (It's just a 'given' for this 'Better' Baker I guess!)
This is a simple idea I did a couple of years ago.
I baked a cake mix in a 9" X 13" pan, placed it on a cutting board and after frosting, I used small jelly belly jelly beans to make a flag. A long pretzel rod makes for a good flagpole. I used gel in a tube to make the USA.
Give it a try.....or a salute!
(Hubby and I both get 'decked out' for these special holidays too, and when I've gone into church with my r,w & b scarf, earrings and purse, one of the dear older ladies salutes me. How fun!)
