For young and old alike, a Patriotic Sweets & Treats Board is loaded with more fun than fireworks! When I first started putting together a summertime sweets board, I was thinking about my little ones…but it turned out to be a huge hit with EVERYONE.
Filled with your favorite red, white & blue homemade treats, fresh fruit and all things sweet, nothing is more easy, fun and perfect than sharing a sweet treat for Memorial Day and the Fourth of July!
SIMPLE & EASY ENTERTAINING!
When I think of summertime celebrations, I think of barbecues, picnics, parades and fireworks, with family and friends gathering in a casual, relaxed setting to laugh and just have fun.
Food that is unfussy, comforting, rustic, and maybe even quirky is typically involved. A grazing board is the perfect fit, because you can choose tasty patriotic-themed foods and serve them in a way that people can help themselves and come back for more. The absolute easiest way to entertain!
My little ones had soooo much fun helping me put this together! They loved making a list, shopping for their favorites, helping decorate with sprinkles, and helping to place everything on the board.
FOR MY PATRIOTIC SWEETS & TREATS BOARD I USED THE FOLLOWING:
The secret of a great sweet & treats board is to find your favorites treats – and to have a few surprises! The goal is to assemble a board filled with texture and color that fits with your theme.
For my Patriotic Sweets & Treats Board, I used a loving mix of some homemade treats and some store-bought items too. Mix and match your favorites for something wonderful and unique every time – whether you’re making it for your little ones, or as a treat to enjoy for a summertime patriotic celebration! Pick your favorites and HAVE FUN!
