Happy 4th Of July

3669546092_53e7b3d783_zWishing you all the best for the Fourth Of July – surrounded by family and friends. I also wish to thank all of the service embers who gave us their all and to those service members who are fighting for our liberties and freedoms as we speak. As we still to this day vow to defeat our country’s flag, our liberties and freedoms we must face all those who oppose as a united front. So while you are enjoying your cookouts and parties – take a moment to just think why you are here today with the right to have such festivities.

One Nation Under God we live
Think about all some had to give

We the people share freedom’s life
In a world of ever present strife

Be grateful to those who keep this true
Warriors of our red, white, and blue

They’re trained by those of great skill
Honed to perform, so strong their will

They show what love is all about
They’ll fight for us, there is no doubt

Defending bravely what we are
No holding back each heartfelt star

Highly praise these men and women
Giving thanks time and again

Those in uniform will always be
The golden pride of this country

Festive Red, White and Blue Table Setting

972172_482585448481267_554677665_nGo overboard with red, white and blue for your table settings – and do so on a budget. Use canning jars or mix and match vases and jars from thrift stores and make a simple arrangement like these that have real red, white and blue blossoms in them with darkly tinted water to really pull your eyes into the arrangement. Don’t forget to mix up red, white and blue plates, bowls, napkins and table cloths. As pictured use edible red white and blue as well – this looks great and everyone will want a taste at the same time.
