4th of July is days away! Are you ready? How do you spend your 4th? I talked a little about my 4th of July traditions in this post, but I wanted to reiterate how much I LOVE this holiday. My family goes ALL OUT. We always have such a great time together and love creating memories surrounding everything stars and stripes.

This year my daughters and I are going to make these DIY patriotic cups and plates for our dessert table. We are using the Chinet® Cut Crystal® stemless wine glasses and Chinet Cut Crystal 10’ dinner plates to make them. Follow along as I show you how to make them!
