happy fourth of july, gang! all of my kiddos are in town so we’re headed to a parade later today, barbecue then fireworks. but after the festivities, we’re looking forward to dessert and refreshments at home along with sparklers. when time is of the essence i’m all about taking a shortcut. so i’m sharing an easy to make fourth of july dessert with y’all.

today’s ootd has already been seen on the blog here. this striped shirtdress came along with me on our Panama City Beach trip. but i knew from the get-go this lighter than air dress would be perfect for the fourth of july.  just add red shoes or sandals for a completely red, white, and blue outfit that’s patriotic yet chic. the dress and sandals are old but i’ve linked similar dresses and sandals below.

i can never decide if hydrangeas or peonies are my favorite flower. it’s a toss-up. but flowers are a must for a perfect tablescape. add a flag to set the tone for the fourth of july.
