Red, White & Blue Recipe Round-Up

If you are trying to come up with something to take to a holiday picnic next week; here are some patriotic recipes that I have shared with you in the past that would be great for the 4th of July! They are all refreshing treats for a hot day and super easy to make. Personally I'm looking forward to the mini deep dish fruit pizzas...YUM!

Ok the next ones aren't Red, White "and" Blue, but they are totally delicious, and go with every picnic

Dry Erase Marker Bouquet {Teacher Appreciation Gift}

This week is Teacher Appreciation Week and Tuesday the 7th is Teacher Appreciation Day. My daughter loves her teacher and we wanted to thank her for all the work she has done for my daughter's class this year. I wanted the gift to be something her teacher could use, but still be cute. I came across this adorable idea for a Dry Erase Marker Bouquet from The Happy Scraps, and decided to make my own spin on it.

I picked up a pack of Expo Markers and a Gift Card from Target. I had everything else left over from my daughter's Lalaloopsy Birthday Party.

I used a fine tip Sharpie to draw around the edges of the foam flowers (from Oriental Trading Company), and just placed the tip of the markers through pre-cut holes in the flowers. I used tissue paper to hold the markers in place, and taped a wooden skewer (with the tip cut off) to the gift card.

I hope this little gesture lets her teacher know how grateful we are for all that she does!

I'll Be Linking Up At Some Of These Parties!
