Store-bought ice cream and a patriotic sundae bar make for a fun and festive centerpiece on the Fourth of July! For the presentation shown here, we set red, white and blue bowls on and around an attractive tiered plant stand.

Guests will enjoy this stars-and-stripes celebration when you feature color coordinated items like maraschino cherries, raspberries, blueberries, strawberries and candy-coated chocolate candies.

Don’t forget to include such standbys as bananas, nuts, canned whipped cream and hot fudge. If you like, finish off the dynamic display with a daisy-filled vase.
