Not all of our parties are grandiose and planned weeks and month in advance. Sometimes the best times are had when we just have a few family friends over for some fun, food and swimming. Our 4th of July BBQ this year was just that.
A Flag Cake made after reading a few different bloggers attempt to make one as well.
The Jalepeno Popper Dip that has become the guy's favorite since I made it for the first time in March.
A simple tablescape for the outdoor table
And a few decorations to transform the back porch as well.
The centerpiece was more useful once the sun went down and the candles were lit.
As you can see my flag cake didn’t come out as I had hoped. In the assembly process I somehow mixed up the top two layers. At least it tasted good!
