KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend, guys!! I am super excited to share some new Friday Finds with you! It's a bit of a mix, as we all seem to be anticipating Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas all at once now. Though I'm trying my hardest to live in the moment with pumpkins and autumn decor. I know after Halloween, everyone will be all about Christmas, but we should slow down and enjoy the harvest decor up to Thanksgiving, don't you think? As always, there are a few printables in the mix for last-minute decor, as well as some products for my fellow wine lovers, and some more awesome discounts that were created just for you Friday Finds readers!! 🙂🍂 So you know the drill, grab a cup of coffee and sit down for a break, so you can relax and browse these amazing shops.

Last Minute Entertaining Ideas for the Fourth


For the main dish, grilling is a must on the Fourth of July. If you're throwing together a last-minute barbecue, you can't go wrong with hot dogs and hamburgers. With little to no prep work and fairly quick cooking time, you'll have everyone fed in a snap. Add on simple summer sides like a garden salad, potato salad, or baked beans. If you're really in a hurry, you can pick all of these sides up at your grocery store deli. Give your barbecue buffet an instant patriotic touch with some dollar store American flags and a red checked table cloth.


Something as simple as french fries get a chic makeover when served in individual glasses with dipping sauce. For an outdoor barbecue, I also like the idea of using cafeteria-style food baskets.


You don't have to spend hours making an intricate flag-themed cake. With simple red, white, and blue frosted cupcakes; you can make a flag cupcake cake even at the last minute. Party City created the stars using a star cookie cutter and white rolled fondant. Click here to see the rest of the supplies needed to create this cupcake flag cake.


Another simple dessert for a summer barbecue is s'mores.  Arrange the ingredients in serving dishes to create a S'mores Bar like the one pictured above.

I hope you all have a safe and happy Fourth!

  1. Excellent tips, Krisztina! Somehow barbecue seems just right for the day.

    Second time today I've seen mention of s'mores. Can't believe I've never tried them.
