The J's Annual 4th of July Party

I am so excited and we are suppose to have great weather. It is only a few days away to our annual 4th of July party. Each year it gets bigger and better. I have so many ideas on how to decorate the house. I have already put up the 4th of July flag on the house. I need to put decorations on the door and I think that I am going to line the driveway with flags, like I did last year. Since we are suppose to beautiful weather, I am trying to think of ways to decorate the back yard. I am sure that I will think of something. Here are some ideas that I found that I might use to display the food and decorate the house.....
I am making cupcakes, but instead of making flags like they did at Martha Stewart, I think that I might make star. They might be a little easier to cute out and I can use the scrapbook paper that I already have.

I found this idea again .... thanks to good ole Martha. I think that I am going to make stars to put on the straw and put a Sharpie next to the cups so that people can put their name on the star to keep track of their glass.

I am going to get started with decorating and cooking on Friday and Saturday, since I am taking a mini-vacation over the next few days. I will make sure that I post, how I decided to decorate and all festivities.  What are your plans for the 4th?
