Happy Birthday America!
Today is the 4th of July otherwise known as Independence Day, America’s Birthday and one that is FULL of celebrations all across our country!
To begin with though… I’ll give you a little insight into my family’s holiday traditions (started by my wonderful mother and her father years ago) in which each holiday we start off with gifting lots of little items that are tailored to the recipients individually. Often this includes many symbols of the holiday to go with them, hence the flags flying and the red, white and blue all over everything for us today! My mother, my sister and I have been fondly referred to as “the queens of Tchotchke” which I’m taking full ownership of and handing down to my boys on holidays like today.
This is our special Starbucks Patriotic breakfast this morning…
There were some more presents but I didn’t want to clutter the photo with too many labels, besides… they were not Starbucks!
So last night I started prepping our America’s Birthday celebration and I started off by making the Starbucks Patriotic Popsicles last night thanks to a BRILLIANT product from a local kid-inventor, Luke, called Zipzicles! I was searching yesterday for fun popsicle containers to use and came across Zipzicles at Bartell Drugs and boy am I happy I did! Not only am I going to spread the word at our BBQ today but probably with anybody and everybody I can about this product because it is not only supporting a local PNW business, but they are BPA free and RE– USEABLE and were inspired by a KID which I will always support!
Great job Luke… your ideas are changing our world for the better!
I then added the labels from the packaging to each so that party-goers could know which Starbucks products they were enjoying!
Happy 4th of July everybody!by
