Good Morning! How was your weekend? My daughter had her dance recital this weekend, so most of Friday (for rehearsal) and Saturday revolved around that. We celebrated Lyla's great performance at her recital and an early Father's Day celebration, by eating out at one of our favorite restaurants Saturday evening.

Now that her dance and my son's baseball is over, I feel like we can really focus on enjoying our summer.  And one of my favorite summer celebrations is the fourth of July!  I love it!  Next to Christmas, I think it's one of my favorite holidays!  Here are some super easy treats that I plan to remake to celebrate the fourth.

I used a simple box cake mix for the cupcakes.  I think the Duncan Hines butter recipe is really good and it's usually the one I make all my cakes and cupcakes with.  For the toppers, I used paper rosettes and pinwheels from Michael's and then cut the blue star from scrapbook paper and attached it to a red and white striped straw.  Simple, cute and festive!

  1. Couldn't be cuter! Love the toppers - looks like I'll have to go check out the 4th of July section at Michaels!
