  1. gorgeous roundup!

    If only I was so organized as to have made something mid-June to have it all edited and ready to go live this week. But no, that didn’t happen.

    Hope you are having the TIME OF YOUR LIFE!!!! 🙂

  2. Oh my, all of these look so good! I just read an article that suggested you should eat the majority of the sugar you’re going to have in the morning…After those photos, that’s currently what I wish I did for breakfast. Fruit pops are one of my favorite summer treats, and I love your colorful version!

    1. Thanks Grace! I have heard the same thing about sugar. I pretty much have to keep away from it no matter what. I do enjoy gazing upon all these goodies though! By the way, my pops don’t have any added sugar in them. The ripe berries offer enough sweetness. If needed I add a little stevia. So I would say those you can enjoy any time of day!!

  3. Love all of these but the cookie wreath is amazing – thinking I’m going to adapt this and send to my sister for her birthday – she loves stars!

  4. These all look so beautiful and amazing! My mom would go crazy over some of this stuff, she’s a stars + stripes freak 🙂 It’s even the theme of her kitchen! If I had to pick from these I’d go with your very blueberry layer cake or those fruit kabobs. Love that they include marshmallows – too cute 🙂 Have a great 4th!

    1. Hi Andrea, love that your mom is a stars and stripes freak!! I love them too. I also thought those marshmallows were a playful touch for the fruit kebabs. You have a great 4th too!

  5. Marla! What a round-up you’ve gathered here, who needs Pinterest when we have you? And love your printables, totally festive and gets me in the mood to wave my sparkler! XO for the mention!
