When it comes to inspiration for holiday parties Pinterest is theplace to look. In honor of the Fourth of July, I’ve recreated three of my favorite red, white, and blue dishes from my online pinboard!
1. You can’t really get any simpler than a watermelon and a cookie cutter, but the result is delicious and festive! Original link
|Just stamp out stars with a cookie cutter. Use the extra to make these cocktails!|
2. These sweet little two-bite cherry pies are the perfect finger-food dessert for a patriotic shindig. The original recipe calls for premade piecrust and cherry pie filling but I prefer the taste of homemade so I used this piecrust recipe and the cherries from Jerry James Stone’s Cherry and Red Wine Cobbler.
|Easily pit cherries by placing them on top of a bottle and pressing pit out witha straw of chopstick!|
3. There is something so childlike and whimsical about strawberries dipped in white chocolate and sprinkles that I gravitate toward them on the treats table every time! They are also super simple to make and can be thrown together last minute!
|Dip the strawberries in melted white chocolate|
|Then dip the chocolate in blue sprinkles!|

You've really captured the spirit of the holiday – thanks for sharing!
I am a sucker for watermelon shapes in my fruit salad, stars, hearts, little guys… I'm always looking for little cutters to add to my collection! http://pinterest.com/pin/249386898088662464/

Yummy! Great pics, too. The problem is finding a watermelon that it truly seedless. Otherwise your stars will be a little hole-y.
