happy fourth

Hope you are all having a festive fourth:) We are having a pretty low-key holiday around here since we just got back from a fun weekend trip to Park City. These are some things I want to incorporate into next years festivities:

Does anybody do it up quite like the folks from hostess?

I love the simple and fun napkin rings!

Love the above pinwheels.

And I must try these adorable and delectable-looking cheesecake shots!

And no fourth for me is quite complete without sparklers! Wanna learn how to make cool photos with sparklers, or just take better photos of fireworks? I linked to something similar last year, but it's always good to have a refresher... click here for a great firework photo tutorial or here.

Wanna learn another fun photo trick? I followed this tutorial to create the below images from this last weekend! Try it!! It's easier than you think:)
