07 Jun Summer In Style Outdoor Edition: 4th of July Ice Cream Bar


I finally made the time to put up my twinkle lights and bring out the outdoor cushions in my backyard! I love summer so much and why not celebrate the beginning with an ice cream bar?


For those of you who are new to my blog because you may be coming from Cassie Bustamante, hello! We are doing a blog hop organized by Chic Little House with some amazing outdoor spaces and I’m glad you stopped by to see my backyard! Welcome to my outdoor space where I made this deck for under $900 last spring. It’s quaint and simple and I’m completely obsessed, haha.



I missed my backyard! I live in Utah where we have rough winters (sometimes it snows in June!) so I did a few things to winterize it. And now that I finally brought everything out of storage and ready to go out here every night, again. Winters in Utah are so beautiful.



And who doesn’t love ice cream on a hot summer evening under twinkle lights and the stars? Used an old palette to hold these cute cement letters I found for sale at Joann’s to help solidify the theme of this get together.



Perfect for a 4th of July party, snag some red, white & blue decor and fruit to celebrate our country. I put ice in the metal container to keep the ice cream cold, found some waffle bowls at a local grocery store that fit perfectly in the most adorable navy bowls (found at Joann’s in stores), and red white and blue fruit (and marshmallows).



I hope you enjoyed your stop along the “Summer In Style Outdoor Edition” blog tour! I’m so happy you came to take a look and hope you continue along to the other stops on the tour.


Tomorrow, take a look at SG Style to see what she has done for our outdoor tour. Here are the other ladies involved in the tour if you want to see them all!
