The Fourth of July is just a few days away! This is our favorite time of year because we can proudly celebrate this wonderful nation we live in.

We have a few ideas to help make things a bit more festive. If you already have your patriotic attire, decorations and flags, you are halfway there.

Here are a few more fun things you can make or buy to bring to any party or simply enjoy for yourself:

Publix cakes or cookies – if you don’t want to bake, Publix always goes “all out” when it comes to themed baked goods. For example, this pull away cake made of cupcakes.

American Flag Caprese Salad – this is unlike anything you have every seen before; a Caprese salad decorated like the American Flag. Just add some toothpicks, so people can assemble them and enjoy.

Rocket cocktail – inspired by the classic popsicle, this cocktail only needs 3 ingredients and crushed ice. Not only does it taste just like the popsicle, but it is very festive!

We hope you have a wonderful Fourth of July!
