Patriotic Fruit Pizza {Celebrate the Red, White & Blue}

A fun and festive sugar cookie dessert pizza to celebrate the upcoming 4th of July Holiday! 

Independence Day is quickly approaching, are you looking for a quick and easy, festive dessert to celebrate the Red, White and Blue?  How about making this easy Patriotic Fruit Pizza. No cookout is complete without a festive dessert, so today I'm sharing the recipe for one of my favorite red white and blue desserts.   

This patriotic fruit pizza is super simple to make and the perfect summer treat. Fruit pizzas have always been a favorite of mine because you can use a variety of in season summer fruits and berries. 

I picked up everything I need to make this simple dessert at my local Walmart. Berries are in full swing right now, so pick your favorites. I chose to go with blueberries and strawberries, but blackberries and raspberries are also a delicious choice. If you need a last minute  4th of themed dessert, I hope you will try this patriotic fruit pizza because I know you'll love it!

Thrifty Decorating: Refreshing Old Patio Furniture

Get your outdoor area ready for summer with this easy budget friendly patio furniture refresh.  
Summer is definitely here, so it's time to get your outdoor area summer ready. I don't know about you, but after a long winter our outdoor patio furniture is looking pretty shabby. We have a wooden deck in our backyard, but it isn't covered, so the Texas sun can be very unforgiving to say the least. 

We plan on building a cover for our deck in the near future, but currently it's just not in our budget. My family spends a lot of time outdoors in the spring and summer cooking out, so what I can do is a simple summer refresh to make our outdoor area a little more inviting. 

The Wrought Iron Patio set that we have is still in really good shape considering it's 6 years old. The table and chairs have some fading, but really all it needs is a small face lift and a few decorative items to bring it back to life.  

Today I'm sharing my simple summer patio refresh while still keeping my budget in check. I pulled this summer refresh together for $25 with products I picked up at my local Walmart. I'm so happy with how awesome this project turned out, and now our patio set looks brand new again!!!!!
