I've set my 4th of July tea table outside, atop my Big Star Quilt. The pretty carnations are from Costco and lasted several weeks.
My teacup is Olde English Countryside, by Johnson Brothers. It looks so pretty with my Liberty plate, by Coventry.
My sister told me about this cute idea that was on the cover of Country Sampler magazine. I bought some marbles from the Dollar Tree and put in my battery operated candle and tied some ribbon around it.
I recently made this dessert to share at a luncheon. It's a wonderful recipe to take for a crowd, but it does need to be made ahead in order for the graham crackers to soften. I hope you try it!
2 boxes of instant vanilla, white chocolate or vanilla cheesecake pudding mix
3 cups milk
1 container of frozen whipped topping, thawed
about 2 cups strawberries, chopped
1 container of chocolate frosting, warmed slightly in the microwave (I actually made a quick chocolate frosting)
Line a 9 x 13" baking dish with graham crackers, breaking some if needed, to fit.
Mix the instant pudding and milk together until thickened, and then add the thawed whipped topping. Layer half of this on top of the graham crackers.
Add half of the chopped strawberries on top of the pudding mix.
Add another layer of graham cracker and then repeat with the pudding mix and strawberries. Finish with a third layer of graham crackers.
Pour the slightly warmed chocolate frosting on top (or make your own). Store in the fridge overnight or for about 8 hours.
Happy Independence Day !!!
