I was looking through some old posts and came across this one from our 2010 Fourth of July party. I posted it on July 5th, which doesn't really help when people search Blogland for ideas leading up to the holiday. (I'm kind of a last minute holiday person.)
In the post, I said I'd repost it this year, around mid-June, so interested parties might be inspired for their own Independence Day celebrations. Guess what? It's mid-June. So here ya go. Independence Day is right around the corner.
