July 4th Musings

In honor of America's birthday, we thought we'd do a pre-Friday Musings all about the red white and blue!! We have a little inspiration for all the brides and/or party-throwers this July 4th, next July 4th, or every July 4th. Enjoy!!

1. Red, White, & Blue Floral

We love that this centerpiece mixes in two shades of blue with a pop of red... just gorgeous!

Check out this 4th of July wedding spread on Style Me Pretty. We can't get enough of their strawberry flower arrangement. And that vase is just perfect!

And for a classic look, we love the simplicity of blue and white hydrangeas mixed with red spray roses. 

2. Firework Exits

What better way to say goodbye in style, than with fireworks?! And there's nothing more traditional than fireworks on the 4th! Mix up the sparklers with these and get that wow-factor for your guests to enjoy as you end your perfect wedding night!

3. Cakes
Naked cakes are all the rage these days, but we love this red white and blue one. Those berries scream summer-time July and the color combo couldn't be more perfect!

How about an American Flag grooms cake? Its cute, fun, and goes with the theme without being cheesy. What Southern American-loving groom wouldn't want this?!

Want something a little more traditional? Try this blue and white floral fondant 3-tiered cake. Check out the other six "Pretty Patriot Cakes" from The Knot here!

4. White Dresses

What's more American than a little white dress on the 4th? Perfect for a bride of course too :) 

In honor of the 4th, Valentino's RED collection has a great selection of white summer dresses for any occasion!

We are dying over Naven's "twiggy dress"! So simple and chic and can be found on  Salon Thesis!

Bride-to-be Lauren Conrad had this adorable little white dress on her "Friday Favorites" blog post. 

Rosie Huntington Whitely perfects the white look in Christian Dior! Our favorite part may be the white dress with white heel combo. This look is perfect for a glammed-up rehearsal dinner, or any summer event!

5. Cocktails
Check out Cosmo's 12 Red White and Booze Cocktails for the 4th! This Strawberry Sparkler looks so yum and refreshing. Have it be your signature drink and the first thing guests see as they enter!

Mix up the classic champagne toast with this Pomegranate Bubbly. Your guests will love the fruity taste and the red, white, and blue look! 

We also love the idea of Strawberry infused water from Ruche's Blog. It looks tasty and also pops a bit of red for a d├ęcor for your 4th of July inspired wedding! 

Have a wonderful July 4th and a great long holiday weekend!
