Fourth of July Family Fun!

Can you believe it’s almost the Fourth of July? We can’t wait for the fireworks, spending time with family, and eating all of the festive food. We wanted to share a simple dessert recipe and family activity to get you ready for the 4th!


This is one of our personal childhood favorites. We remember our mom making strawberry and blueberry shortcakes, packing it up, and heading down to the water to watch the fireworks. This recipe is simple and it allows the whole family to partake in making their own personal-sized desserts!


  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Whipped Cream
  • Mini Shortcakes
  • Cutting Board
  • Sharp Knife

Place all ingredients and supplies out, then give each person a mini shortcake to build their own dessert! The kiddos will love crafting their creations, our little models were so proud of theirs!

We chose our Markle Charger, Denim Jorts Charger, Ruby Kiss Dessert Plates, Ruby Kiss Guest Napkins, Blue My Mind Cocktail Napkins, and Blue My Mind 12oz Cups for this look!


While you are getting ready to head out to the parade or BBQ, don’t forget to add some sparkle to your attire! We love our temporary tattoos, they are a fun activity for kids and parents to do together. Just press to skin with a damp paper towel for 30 seconds, and voilà! Baby, you’re a firework.

We’d love to see how you celebrate the Fourth of July! Tag @jollityanco and use the hashtag #partywithjollity.
