If you are looking for a quick dessert for the 4th of July, I found this strawberry bundt cake at my local market bakery and topped it with fresh strawberries and blueberries. It's such a simple treat that doesn't require a lot of extra work, looks pretty, and tastes yummy too.

Mini bunting is a great way to dress up a cake stand. I used the scallop flag bunting around the edge of the cake stand for more patriotic flare. Just cut to the desired length then use double-sided tape to affix.

Fresh strawberries and blueberries are perfect for a patriotic celebration. Of course, you can use any red and blue fruits you desire. Fruit makes a refreshing and tasty summer treat.

Another simple dessert that is good for the summer and a patriotic celebration are these delicious brownie bites with white chocolate icing. I also got these at a local grocery bakery and then added a fresh strawberry sliver and a blueberry to the top of each. So simple and even cuter when added to these fireworks themed snack cups.

I also purchased the mini cherry turnovers from the grocery store, added some red paper shred and placed in these navy and white striped baking cups. Patriotic food cups are a must-have for dressing up any party table.

When celebrating the birth of a nation, you must have Patriotic partyware! And these Let Freedom Ring napkins and Land That I Love plates are both spot-on. Pair red, white, or blue star plates, star cups, red and white scalloped plates, and navy cutlery to create a prideful USA table setting.

Light up your table with red, white, and blue balloons and party favors. Confetti poppers make an excellent party favor for kids. The kids will love cracking poppers because each one includes various gifts and prizes!
