Easy July 4th Treats

I tend to leave holiday preparation until the last minute.  I love to decorate and make treats for 4th of July, but I get overwhelmed with all of the uber-creative ideas I find on blogs and featured in magazines.  I decided to create 3 simple, inexpensive July 4th party ideas that can be thrown together at the last minute and still make your Independence Day memorable.  

A platter of red, white, and blue!

As favors for a party or a hostess gift,  decorate tea lights in red, white and blue washi tape for an easy and cute gift!

I love angel food cake for a light, summer treat.  Just add whip cream and berries for a colorful holiday dessert.

I used the extra berries and froze them to create a beautiful and slightly sweet addition to sparkling water.
