{red, white & blue dessert!}


I'm really not big into jello desserts. I had never even purchased blue jello before and I'm not sure if I've ever eaten raspberry jello. That said, when I saw this fun recipe for a red, white and blue trifle dessert...I could not resist making one! A day earlier, I had purchased some beautiful raspberries and blueberries. So, you can see that this dessert was fate. :)
...and well, then I needed to make some glittered up paper stars from American Crafts cs, attached to blue toothpicks to add to my Fourth of July dessert.
The recipe for this festive dessert can be found here.
I'm going to link this delicious post up to Paper Issues. They're having a red, white and blue party!!! The projects in the gallery now -- over-the-top fabulous!! Check 'em out, just for fun!!!
Happy Birthday, America!!
hugs, patti

OMG! This looks sooooo yummy! I love how you added the stars at the top, so festive! BTW, is that your yard in the background? If it is, all I can say is WOW! Your yard is so beautiful and green and huge! I am jealous!

Happy 4th Patty! Be safe & have a blast! :)
