{HOLIDAY} 4th of July Family Reunion style

A couple years ago my whole family got up to Seattle for a family reunion. It was so perfect to be all together in the house we grew up in and spending time in a city we really love. The reunion was over the 4th of July so we enjoyed a backyard bbq and watched some illegal firework shows from the back porch. Thanks neighbors:)
Feeding over 20 people can be challenging, though my mom makes it look like a breeze.

The Menu:



Fruit and Veggie trays

Chips and Salsa
Bottled Drinks

My favorite part was dessert of course! Homemade star sugar cookies and homemade ice cream, and topped with fresh berries.
What is your favorite part of the 4th of July?


  1. i love the fourth. so fun to use flags and reds in all the decor. your family {and YOU} are always really good at mixing up food choices at parties. perfect outdoor bbq spread.

    love the plates!

  2. best memory of that reunion. i love the fourth and you have to be with family. the colors are ideal too.
