Here are a few of my Favorites.  Thanks to all who participated!

Stow and Tell U has a great tutorial for patriotic straw hats--love!

Two Purple Couches has a patriotic fabric garland for you to make:

Intelligent Domestications has such a clever, patriotic way with Mason jar lids--patriotic coasters! 

Now has easy is this?  I think any of us still have time to add these festive Bakers Twine Wrapped Candles to our picnic table today!  Thanks, Laurie at My Husband Has Too Many Hobbies!

If you still need a treat for today, try this easy and tasty recipe for American Flag Krispy Treats  by Marilyn's Treats.  Guaranteed to be a hit!

So the little ones have something to do while the food and activities are being prepared, Have them make their own American Flag craft, courtesy of Ducks N a Row.  Cute!
