God bless pinterest for fueling my love of holiday-themed cuteness (I love holidays, anniversaries, whatever- I like celebrating things)! Of course, we live in a tiny apartment and aren't throwing too many parties, but this year we are going home for 4th of July, so I am hoping I can try some of these ideas and take them to my dad and his wife's cook-out.

Just love this picture! Want to try these with the sparklers this year.

Ok, I tried to mostly avoid the straight up junk food because we are still trying to svelte up, but comeon! these are cute!

Very all-American, and it seems like it would be pretty simple to make.

Love the ones with the flag. It is cute to see how people make this fit on pretty much any food.

Case and point- Cake!!!  I don't understand how people do this, or more importantly, why would they even want to? The elaborate cake layer thing is a tough one for me to understand, but I bet you could get me on board.

Kind of cute decorations.

I think this is my style in cutesiness, because it is so simple! I do look at this and wonder what you do with the extra watermelon though? Just eat it? Do you have a normal fruit salad and a cutesy one?

More bandana decor! Do people think that our country was founded by cowboys? I do not get this trend, but a John Wayne themed 4th party might be really fun and bizarre, unless you were really sincere, at which point it would be horrible.

Love this quilt hanging. This really says let's party like it's 1776 (except let's not, because to be honest, I hate Benjamin Franklin because he is a syphilis-inducing super creeper).

 This one is actually kind of smart- you poke a hole in a paper plate and tie the silverware on. Well-played.
