Getting Fancy on the 4th

Who doesn't love the 4th of July?  Seriously, one of the best holidays of the year, in my opinion.  My love for this holiday probably comes from my parents.  For years, they have been hosting a 4th of July party at their house.  They have all of their friends over, everyone brings a side dish and my dad enjoys the day outside drinking beer and grilling the most amazing hamburgers on his 25 year old Hasty Bake grill.  It's summertime at its finest.  (If you don't know about Hasty Bake grills, you need to check them out here.  They are the best grills and just might change your life.) 

So I have to say, I am super disappointed that we will not be in attendance at this year's party.  It's one of the cons of living 4 hours away and being 30 weeks pregnant.  However, I am going to try to strike up my own little party here in Kansas City with some red, white and blue love, even if it's just a party of 2 (and a half). 

Your 4th celebration doesn't have to be a blow out (no pun intended), but adding a few of these ideas just might make you feel patriotic...and a little bit fancy.
