16 Patriotic Decorating Ideas and Recipes


On this day, 9 Years Ago, I married my best friend.  We were married in beautiful Riviera Maya, Mexico, in a gazebo overlooking the ocean.  It was just the two of us.  It was a second marriage for both of us.  We had only been dating for 10 months, but I knew much sooner than that that I would spend my life with him.  I knew this was the person that I was going to grow old with, and we were never going to run out of things to talk about.  And 9 years later, we are still talking.  Marrying him was the best decision I ever made.  Funny story about our wedding day- Right before I left my hotel to go to the wedding location, I was so nervous I was shaking, so I took a big shot of whiskey.  After the wedding was over, I confessed this to LC, and he told me he had done the same exact thing!  Cheers to my husband for 9 wonderful years, and I’m hoping for many more.  Thanks LC, for making these past 9 years the best ones of my life so far! 

So onto our regularly scheduled post for today!  Seeing that we are just a tad over a week away from the 4th of July holiday, I thought I would bring you some Patriotic inspiration.  So here are 16 patriotic decorating ideas and recipes.  Enjoy!

I have created a Patriotic Food and D├ęcor Pinterest Board that has loads of more inspiration for you to enjoy as well, so I do hope you will go and check it out!  I think I am going to make some of that sangria for a party we are going to on July 4th.  And probably one of the dessert recipes too! You can also click here to see my Patriotic Inspired post I wrote last year.  

Have a great weekend!
