our first 4th BBQ!

Our 4th of July was so much fun! I've been planning it for months, since our best friends Jackie and Lino were going to be in town. We baked, cooked, and BBQ'ed. We had Ronnie's ribs, hot dogs, cole slaw, rosemary potatoes, corn, salad, baked beans, patriotic cupcakes and patriotic fruit kabobs. Total FEAST. Everyone was so hungry, that I forgot to take pics of the food! It was a lot of work, but in the end it was worth it. Here is our 4th in pictures!

Patriotic Cupcakes! They came out so cute!
Jackie making the cupcakes! Teamwork! We even added some cuban rum in the batter to make it a little different. We called them our "Cuban-American Cupcakes!" :)
My table setup!

Flag centerpieces! Martha inspired, of course! (colored sand and flags)
I picked up the patriotic buckets and red table cover at Target's dollar spot and the napkins, flags, and centerpiece items at Michael's. And the "Happy 4th" banner I picked up at the Target Dollar Spot, too. (pictured below)

Marshmallows stars were found at good ole' Wal-Mart.

Gels clings were found at Target's Dollar Spot, too! Cute touch!
This was taken after the end of a long day....tired!
Hope your day was filled with all things red, white, and blue, too! We are so blessed to be Americans!
