Last Minute 4th of July Ideas


So you are preparing for the 4th of July and realize you need some quick food ideas to serve your guests or bring to a potluck… never fear, that is why I am here!

Here are a couple quick recipe ideas to quickly make your day a success! If all else fails, a simple batch of hot dogs and potato chips will always do the trick ;)

4th 1

Fruit Flag from

Pop on over to Party City for your American Flag decor. While you are there, grab some skewers and a disposable tray to make this adorable flag with banana slices, strawberry wedges and blueberries! If you are in need of more skewers than this, just add another matching layer on top! Quick and easy.

4th 2

Trifle from

I honestly do not believe I have Ever gone wrong with a Martha Stewart recipe. Not only is this trifle extremely beautiful and patriotic, but the simple and minimal amount of ingredients make this recipe a quicky. What a way to impress your guests! Grab a few sparkler candles and you are set for party time!

4th 3

Cookies from

You can never go wrong with sugar cookies. I absolutely love the look of the frosting on these festive little desserts. See TheChicLife for directions on making the frosting for these. I can also picture them on little sticks as cookie pops!

I hope you all enjoy your holiday weekend and stay safe!
