4th of July Party Food

Now that I'm in my 6th month of pregnancy, my hunger has skyrocketed and I find myself dreaming about my next meal while I'm still on my current meal! Since I can't have a patriotic cocktail this year for the 4th, some red, white, and blue yummy food will have to do! I rounded up some creative ideas I found on Pinterest. We're heading to my parents' during the day tomorrow so I plan to make a few of these and bring them over!


How cute and how easy do these look? I could see kids loving these and hot dog obsessed preggos like myself, too!



Who doesn't love a 7 Layer Bean dip? They're like the dump cake of dips, just dump it all in and go. The blue part is made from blue corn chips, how creative? I'm definitely making this for tomorrow.



This salsa looks refreshing and I would never think to add blueberries to salsa. These are always so easy to throw together.



4th of July Sliders
A spin on an all-American classic. These little sliders are perfect for a cook out.



These are like a Caprese Salad but on a kabob. These would take zero time to make, the longest thing would be boiling the tortellini. 



You could totally buy the cupcakes and add the blueberries on top and you're done. Instant patriotic dessert.



I made these last year and they were a hit. The cheesecake dip goes so well with the fruit.



This is pure Oreo heaven. How good do these look? I'm drooling.



These are so cute! I would probably add strawberries on top, I'm not a big cherry fan.



And a mocktail for me! Of course you could add Champagne instead of soda water.





Have a great 4th of July and stay safe!
