Happy 4th of July Food Festivities

This year for the 4th of July, I decided to go all out with food. Our plans changed at the last minute so the night before I got a list together of all the food that I needed and just decided to go for it. I think everything was on point thisyear. I am so happy with how it all turned out... so was my hubby!

I just wanted the whole day to be filled with sunshine (which is was, I did get a nice tan), music, reading, good food, and relaxation.

Here is a photo-blog of all our food for the 4th of July from brunch, a "Watermelon Pizza" until dessert a Red, White and Blue trifle!
