I love celebrating any holiday but summer get-togethers are some of my favorites.  Barbeques and cook outs are so much fun!  To make your’s a little bit different, try a few of these simple tricks:
-Make a water park for the kids on your block by asking your neighbors to turn on their sprinklers at the same time!
-Set your table in red, white and blue to honor those who fought for our freedom.
-Make a watermelon centerpiece!  Simply slice the top quarter off of a watermelon, prop it up in a big dish (I used a galvanized tub) and stick flowers inside the melon.  I used gerber daisies but any type of flower will do.  The flowers stay nice for a long time because of the sugars in the melon!
