Welcome back to the Happiness is Homemade Link Party #227
I am so excited to be hosting my first Happiness is Homemade #227 Link Party. I am a new host this year and I have been having so much fun. I enjoy all the awesome posts each week. I love to look at all the great ideas (I can not tell you how many I save to my Pinterest boards). I hope you are having as much fun as I am. I am so excited to be picking out the featured posts and I know you will love them. As we are close to the 4th of July week I have some fabulous ideas for you.
Have a Great 4th of July ~ Susan @craftingafamily.com
On with this week's features!
Because I love everything S'Mores you will want to make a batch of Heather's S'Mores Popcorn Balls. You could make these any time of the year, and the 4th is a perfect excuse to make a big batch for your family celebration. Find the recipe and instructions at Happiest Camper.com
Every picnic or family 4th celebration need a fun activity for the kids. Angie has the perfect fun sidewalk chalk project for decorating your lawn for the 4th of July. She has a great video that shows you exactly how to use the paint for your decorations and how to get the kids involved.

Jenna has a super cute table that she painted to have a beachy colored look. You could use this as a side table on your deck or porch and it screams summer and the beach. All the instructions and video included. How to Create a Beachy Colored Look with Paint at Rainonatinroof.com
I believe it is so important to remember on the three major summer holiday, the men & women who give us our freedoms to live the lives of our dreams. Whether you are visiting the link party as a blogger or a mom looking for ideas, we need to remember families like Jennifer's who keep us safe.
