Fourth of July Dessert Table

Be sure to check out our free Fourth of July Party Printables!

I also want to share my Dessert Table.  I think you and your guests {especially the little ones} will love this.

Welcome to Sweet Street {aka Interstate July 4} — a street lined with red, white and blue cupcakes topped with road signs and pinwheels.  My “street” is actually a black tablecloth…and those lines in the road — electrical tape {more on that later}.

On this street, the main attraction is the construction truck that delivers gumballs to the nearby town…

..but occasionally the truck spills it’s contents on the road — to the delight of nearby pedestrians — but this incident always causes a traffic jam.  Once the road is clear, cars get moving again…

…and on the 4th of July, you’ll see some cars decorated with red, white and blue stripes {more electrical tape} to mark the occasion.

…And once again traffic comes to a halt when more roadblocks appear, such as buckets of kettle corn:

Fortunately, sometimes things will appear in the center of the road which allows the cars to keep moving {at a slower speed, of course}.

All in all, it’s been a good day on Sweet Street/Interstate July 4….and I had a blast sharing this idea with you!
