We host a breakfast before our Fourth of July Parade every year. It is a chance for us to get together and put the finishing touches on our parade float. I am always trying to think of fun festive touches! This year I am placing wooden cutlery and a napkin in a striped bag embellished with a star.

4th of July cutlery bags

I used blue baker’s twine, striped mini treat bags, wooden cutlery, napkins and star cut-outs.
