We hosted a 4th of July & Housewarming party at our house on Saturday for our friends and family. It was a lot of fun and the weather was really great. Everyone really enjoyed getting together and checking out all of the work we've done in our house. I had worked on a lot of projects for this party and I'm excited to get to share them with you. I didn't get to take many pictures of everything because I finished working on stuff right as everyone started arriving, but I have a couple to show you.

So, I also made a big batch of lemon drop jello shots and orange jello shots but I didn't get a picture of those. :( We had lemonade and sangria in large mason jar drink dispensers. You can see the mini red velvet cupcakes that I made in one of those pictures above. I put them on a really cute cupcake stand from Angela! For dessert, we also had fruit pizza in the shape of a flag with strawberries and blueberries, fruit trifle, and s'mores using the fun extending marshmallow roasting skewers like these that I got from Target.
And because no holiday is complete without me dressing up Darcy and taking pictures of him, here are a few of my favorites ;)
Last night I made a really fun Red, White and Blue Cake for the party we're going to tonight! Check back here tomorrow for the recipe and pictures.
