4th of July Fruit Kabob

I love flicker. People are so smart and talented and show you their ideas.  The problem with Flicker is I can never find a link to give proper credit.  If this is your idea please send me the link. Thanks!

4th of July Fruit Kabobs

Use a star cookie cutter and cut the watermelon.

Line a kabob stick with blueberry, strawberries and top with the watermelon.

Voila easy peasy :)

How many years?

I just love this idea showing “age” for a party.  It could be for a Birthday, Anniversary, years worked etc.

Unfortunately this was a picture I found on Flicker with no link.  If this belongs to you please let me know so I can put up a link!


Confetti Balloons

Here is a great idea for a party.  You can coordinate your confetti to match any theme.  Purchase white helium balloons and glue your confetti on the bottom.


** I found this idea on Pinterest. Sorry NO LINK it was just a picture.

  • 1 slice provolone cheese

  1. Preheat a griddler or panini press.
  2. Butter both slices of bread. Layer the cheese, mac and cheese and bacon on 1 bread slice. Top with the second piece of bread and slightly push them together.
