You do not have a lot of time to throw an Independence Day shindig together by tomorrow, but here are some quick and easy decor and food ideas to save the day! If you have blue vases or blue wine or sparkling water bottles laying around, dress up your table with these glass vases and add red carnations from the grocery store. While you are at the store pick up a strawberry pie, whipped cream, and little flag toothpicks. You can create a semi-homemade pie by adding the whipped cream and flags, but be sure to chill the pie until ready to serve.
You can also create quick and easy parfaits by adding red food coloring to vanilla pudding, and then layer the red and white pudding in clear cups or mason jars, and top with berries. Viola, an easy dessert that will taste as pretty as it looks! You can make your own punch or peach sangria, just add the extra blueberries and strawberries from your dessert into the pitcher for a colorful drink! You can serve sodas, bottled water, and cool pops for the kids in metal buckets filled with ice. Your guests will definitely stay cool, and enjoy the festive atmosphere! Happy 4th to you and yours!
