July 4th Ideas with Strawberries

What could be more fun than celebrating our great country with friends and family this July 4th? And with so many festive and fun ideas out there, you can entertain in style without breaking the bank or spending too much time in the kitchen.

One of the first things I do when planning a party is to begin with my color palette. And with the red, white and blue of the 4th of July, you can easily find just what you need in the produce department of the grocery store.... Strawberries!

Just look at some of these wonderful ideas:

Strawberry Lemonade from Cooking with my Kid looks like a fabulous thirst quencher for those hot, summer days.

White chocolate dipped strawberries dressed up for the 4th would be a fun Independence Day activity for the kids from She Wood Time.

And if you need something quick, there's nothing much simpler than the idea of using strawberries and blueberries for the perfect cupcake topper from The Cupcake Blog.
