Is there anything more magical than fireworks across a summer’s night sky; than the way the biggest booms reverberate in your chest leaving awe in their wake; than the smell of gunpowder after the grand finale laced with sunscreen and hot charcoal? No, my friends. This is the good life. This is the 4th of July.
The Fourth of July has long been my favorite holiday. Even as a child it beat out birthdays and Christmas; all the Halloween candy in the world couldn’t change my mind. And the reasons I fell in love with it then are the very reasons we celebrate it at all. The freedom of staying in the pool as long as I wanted, the freedom of Summer vacation, the freedom of lighting as many sparklers as would fit in my hand. Freedom, glorious freedom.
Whether today’s plans include family BBQ’s or the town’s firework display over the water, get your pursuit of happiness started with these fabulous natural wicker picnic baskets from Household Essentials.
Perfect for family or friends, this hand-woven Willow Picnic Basket offers service for four. The adorable green and white checkered print adds a vintage appeal and keeps the interior clean and tidy.
