Friday Favorites–Red, White and Blue

Here in the United States, our team colors are red, white and blue.  There’s no shortage of the stars and stripes this time of year, but you won’t see me complaining.  I once had a bathroom decorated in red, white and blue, so I’m all in.

I’m not usually much into wreaths, except at Christmas, but this Nautical Wreath from Etsy seller TheBakersDaughter is adorable, as is everything in her shop.

I think this might be too much frosting to actually eat, but I’m not sure that would stop me from trying this Patriotic Rose Cake from I Am Baker.

I love the whole ombre trend that’s going around right now.  Somehow, Eighteen25 managed to pull it off using red, white and blue in this Subway Art printable.

I think the simplicity of these Victory Wine Crate Herb Gardens from Kaleidoscope of Colors is what makes them special.

A Pumpkin and a Princess shares a round-up of her previous Patriotic Crafts.  This Paper Chain and the Mini Star Pies are my favorites.

I love the waviness of this Bargello Flag Quilt Pattern from Country Woman.

This No-Sew Table Runner from Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom would be a great last-minute decoration for an Independence Day party.

As I said, I’m not one to shy away from using a red, white and blue color scheme in decorating, although I’d probably tone it down a little more these days.  These Cubby Holes from Better Homes and Gardens would be cute in a kids room or maybe even a mud room.

Need an activity to keep everyone busy while you’re waiting for the fireworks to start?  Try these printable 4th of July Bingo Cards from Makoodle.

These Snow Cone Cupcakes are the cutest thing I’ve seen all day.  You just can’t go wrong with Bakerella.

It’s going to be a little quiet around here next week because I’m going to be in…drumroll, please…DISNEYLAND!  It’s my daughter’s graduation present and we couldn’t be more excited to get there.  I’ve got a couple of Disney-inspired projects to share with you when I get back!
