I topped the cupcakes with pinwheel picks found at Michael's and red sixlets. I made the quatrefoil wraps.
Everyone in blogland makes marshmallow pops look so easy. I suppose I'm marshmallow pop challenged...
The PCP was most impressed by the red and blue popcorn. I'll post the recipe as soon as I have a minute to type it up. It was pretty tasty - you know for those of us with the refined taste buds of a five year old. See here for the how-to on the popcorn cones and display box (that I recycled from our last baseball game).

Sister inspires me to always have fresh flowers at a party - these were causal daisy and carnation arrangements thrown in Mason jars and topped with a pinwheel (from Party City). I made eight... EIGHT... of these little flower arrangements from two bunches of flowers at Costco that totaled eighteen dollars!!! That's two twenty-five a piece (to spare you the long division in your head.)
It was raining cats and dogs at fireworks time and the club had to cancel the show. But rest assured that the littles at our shin dig were just as happy as a lark putting on their own sparkler show.
