Well, the 4th is over. We always mean to have a party for the 4th, but somehow, it never works out. This year was really nice because we made it work out. I think everyone who came enjoyed the food and had a good time.
I am glad we did it. I always get crazy a day or two before entertaining and wonder why I am doing it. Then the day after I think, I'm really glad I did it. Do you ever feel this way about entertaining, or is it just me?
Below are the yummy brownies I made. They are just plain old brownies, but I made them in a muffin tin so that every edge gets that yummy chewy effect that everyone loves. They were a big hit. I just put a Betty Crocker canned icing on them and used the marshmallow fondant I had left over from the bug cupcakes for the stars and a heart confetti by Wilton. Oh, and I made some 4th of July cupcake wrappers at the last minute. If you'd like them, they are below.
I also made this pillow cover for the other corner of the porch on Friday night. It could use a bigger pillow, but the form I had was too small.
Be sure to click on them and open then into the full-size before trying to save these or they won't print correctly.
A friend of ours opened a new cafe, so I'm going to be selling my coffee cozies at her shop. Here are the ones I finished the other day.
