Patriotic Blog Hop

Posted on: June 29, 2012

Happy 4th of July!  How did that sneak up so quickly?  It seems like school just ended, and now summer’s half over!   My lovely blogging buddies decided to do another blog hop to spark some fun ideas for your Independence Day weekend and upcoming celebrations.  So proud to be a part of such a talented group of women!  Be sure to click on the 4th of July button or link at the end of each post to find the next blog’s creations.

My first creation is a lunch for one of the girls.  It’s 3 star shaped sandwiches on Rudi’s Whole Grain bread.  On both sides of the stars are firework picks of blackberries and raspberries and an American flag flying on top of the sandwiches.  I managed to find some fun vintage picks for my holiday lunches and snacks this round.  At the top left is Lady Liberty sitting on a pile of blueberries.  And at the top right are watermelon stars topped with an Old Guard fife and drum corps pick all packed in an Easy Lunch Boxes container.

The next Easy Lunch Boxes is an afternoon snack.  At the top left is So Delicious brand coconut milk mango yogurt topped with pomegranite seeds and topped with a Liberty Bell pick.  At the top right are blackberries with a strawberry star and a firecracker July 4th pick.  In the large compartment is a star shaped homemade cornbread muffin and pinwheel picks of raspberries and blueberries.

Muffins ARE lazy! I made them the day before. No frills. Just lots of picks to dress up cut fruit!
