Red, White, Blue & You – Amazon Fourth of July Inspiration

Hi friends! Here we are, the first of July and the first Monday of the month. If you are looking for some fourth of July inspiration, then you’ve come to the right place. I’m excited to be hosting a link up with some of my favorite blogger friends, Andrea, Chrissy, Kellyann, Laura and Shelly. We’re talking fourth of July inspiration and all things red, white and blue. I mean, what else would we be talking about this week? HA!

I’ve got a delicious and super easy recipe for one of our families favorite snack mixes that can be adapted to fit any holiday (thanks to the M&M’s people). I’m coupling that with some good red, white and blue things from Amazon to make hosting your 4th of July celebration easy as pie. Seems we are all big fans of AMAZON these days, and so it only made good sense to hunt out some fun stuff to make it easier on you if you still need some things to round out your celebration.

Here’s what you’ll need.
The Best Snack Mix, Coast to Coast

This mix makes the perfect snack or party favor. It looks pretty stored in a glass apothecary jar on your counter and makes it oh so easy to over indulge. ?You can package it in cute boxes and deliver to your neighbors or friends.

If you still need a few little touches of red, white & blue around your house, here are some fun options you can order and have in time for your celebration.

Haven’t found the perfect paper plates and party perfect serve ware? Want to make cute cupcakes to go with your party mix?

You can’t have a 4th of July party without a ton of fun party favors for the kids.

And of course you’ve got to dress in red, white & blue.

Now let’s get linking your fourth of July inspiration….

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

    Oh, Chex Mix, how I miss you! Why couldn’t I have taken after my dad and been naturally slim??? Might have to mix up some of this goodness and measure it out into little baggies so I don’t eat the whole thing in one sitting. Looks so festive and I know it is delicious.

    All of your R,W & B goodies are adorable. Hoping to get my post scribbled up today and linked with you.

      That’s a great idea, Leslie. Portion control is HARD. Thanks friend! XO

  9. July 1, 2019 / 6:59 am

    I love treats like this, Lisa. BUT, I don’t seem to have impulse control, so I’d have to take them to a party!

    • July 2, 2019 / 12:24 pm

      LOL Kim! It really easy to get carried away. So yummy!!! XO

  10. July 1, 2019 / 7:32 am

    That sounds delicious! We just love making snack mixes around here.

  11. July 1, 2019 / 8:10 am

    The only thing bad about this snack mix is I’d eat it all in one sitting…LOL!!

    • July 2, 2019 / 12:24 pm

      For real, Jodie!!! It’s waaayyy to easy t do that!!! XO

  12. July 1, 2019 / 10:34 am
