Red, White and Blue Decorating...

Home Stager with Essential Home Staging

Every year our family celebrates 4th of July with a different twist on decorating!  My mother-in-law started a tradition over 10 years ago of Waffle Decorating!  I know you're thinking how does this relate to 4th of July?  We decorate with strawberries (red), blueberries (blue), and whip cream (white).

Competition gets tougher every year to come up with an original idea!  We've had everything from the Statue of Liberty to Elmo.  Days, even weeks ahead, the phone calls start coming in with family asking ‘have you thought of what you're decorating this year?'...but I know a good artist never tells reveals their masterpiece until it's complete.

Prizes are awarded, and range from the most creative, best overall, and most delicious!  I must say before we had kids, my husband and I thought the idea was a little strange.  After having children, they cannot wait to get to grandma's and get their groove on!

Here are some of this year's entries, can you guess what they are?

Just a little fun to share and a reminder to think outside of the box, be creative in your own way, and enjoy the little things in life!

I have no idea but they look really delicious!  Any way you can stir up some quality time with the kids is a good thing!
