    These are such great ideas and I would have never thought of most of them! I need to get in gear and start getting ready for the 4th!

    I normally bake some kind of red, white, & blue treat. But I love the addition of drinks in the right hues. Got to try out those punch recipes.

    Oh what fun it would be to have a huge giant 4th of July party and use ALL of these ideas. I especially love the colorful drinks.
