  1. What an awesome list, Dorothy! I’m still trying to wrap my head around the fact that the 4th is in TWO DAYS! Where is the time going??

  2. All great ideas!! I’ve got a round up coming tomorrow and I’m going to link to yours if they want more ideas!

  3. You are SO prepared, and I’m so… Not. The only plans I have for the 4th are to watch fireworks. No party plans, no dinner plans, no dessert plans (gasp! the world must be ending!)… I’d rather celebrate with you! 😉

  4. I love all of these ideas! I was dreading my 4th of July baking but this post re-motivated me!
