4th of July Inspiration: Patriotic Shortcake

4th of July Inspiration: Patriotic Shortcake

Amanda from Joy Ever After sent over this festive 4th of July table setting – aptly titled “Patriotic Shortcake“.

I love the simplicity of this pretty table design – not to mention the adorable pinwheel drink accents (!) – and thought it might help to get you in the mood for July 4th celebrations this weekend…

P.S. Looking for a good shortcake recipe? Here’s a Strawberry Lemon Shortcake recipe that Amanda recommends – and – for those of you working on getting into that summer bikini – a “lightened up” Strawberry Shortcake recipe alternative.

Thanks again for the inspiration, Amanda!

Last year I made a quick strawberry and blueberry topping for shortcake and angel food cake that I took up to my grandparents cookout. It reminded me of your recipe slightly. I macerated some strawberries and blueberries in a little orange liqueur and a bit of honey to make sure the orange liqueur did not overpower the berries. Put whipped cream on top and it was a very beautiful dish. Perfectly matched my patriotic themed party supplies that I brought along.
