Rachael’s appetizer and little party bits

olive salami picks

Connor’s friend, Rachael, brought these super easy and super tasty little appetizer picks. Luckily I was able to snap a photo before they were all snapped up!

chip & dip

No one had signed up for chips and dip, so I asked Connor to provide those.

chip and salsa

You have to have chips and dip!

flag snack tray

I threw together a red, white, and blue flag snack tray using, red grapes, banana slices, strawberries, yogurt-covered pretzels, blueberries, and raspberries.

white house

Lastly, I purchased a mock gingerbread house at Trader Joe’s, which was really a sugar cookie White House and I pretended like it was Christmas in July. I loved putting it together since our long family tradition of Marissa and Connor each assembling their own Christmas gingerbread houses has fallen by the wayside. Mostly because they hate it! Oh well, a mom can reminisce.

Tram and Scott

These were a few of the little extras at the 4th of July Party Pot-Luck Pool Party. The main course and dessert details will follow in the coming days.

Rachael’s Olive & Salami Picks

  • Pimento stuffed green olives
  • 1 package Boursin (any flavor) or 1 package cream cheese, room temperature
  • Thinly sliced salami
  • Decorative picks or toothpicks
  • Lettuce leaves

boursin or cream cheese

Remove the pimento from the green olives and fill them with Boursin or cream cheese.

Lay out the salami slices and spread with a thin layer of cheese.

Fold the salami in half and then in half again and thread onto a pick, add olive and serve on a lettuce leaf-lined platter.
