We say yes please to these adorable
Festive Forth of July FREE Chalk Printables
to decorate with!!!
If you've been following our blog, pinterest board, or instagram you know I've been trying to find a different cute FREE printables for each Season/Holiday this year to string across and add as an extra festive touch to our front door wreath; so of course when I came across this
I just had to go for it and share!!!
Bonus you can save the image above to print and cut for small door banner as I did for my wreath or follow the photo link for the larger banner letters to add to the rest of your celebration decor!!!
...we just adore the chalky print above and the plethora of other darling chalk prints for any occasion over at...
You can never go wrong with fresh fruit and cool whip for a quick and easy tasty festive treat ;) We like to do fat free frozen cool whip but since we know that's not everyone cup of tea just go for whatever suites your families fancy!!! To each their own ; ) there is no wrong way to do something and we adore how everyone has their own unique version and twist on things that makes life interesting!!!
Speaking of twists and yummy things; ice scream is our families "kryptonite;" so if we splurge on a tasty treat it is usually good old ice cream!!! Thus we jumped for joy and had to share this super awesome mini ice scream sunday bar complete with free fabulous patriotic printables!!!
We heart throwing little battery powered lights into mason jars for extra ambiance at night for special occasions; especially when you live in a firework free zoned area as we do!!! Lucky we can still see the big sanctioned firework shows around the state with the family!!!
We've really enjoyed celebrating in
the last few years since my husband works up there; however; we also have always loved trying new things and squeezing in as much fun and quality time together as we can!!! So for those of you looking for more stellar ways and things going on in Utah/Greater Salt Lake City Area hosts a multitude of events and ways to celebrate!!!
We hope you all have a fun and festive forth!!! Stay safe and thank you to all those who have served our country in any capacity so we can all live in the land of the free and home of the brave!!!
Happy Independence Day
