There are two things that excite us in particular about the 4th of July this year – great window covering sales and baking fun cupcakes to share at friends’ grilling parties.

Act fast and get 10% off ALL Blinds.com brand blinds and shades (by 7/5/2012) – just in time to get your custom insect screens for your porch or faux silk roller shades for your swanky living room.

But the great deals don’t end with the holiday, check out the rest of this month’s Blinds.com deals here.  Here’s one of our favorites!:

We love this sophisticated window shade because they look so modern and so soft at the same time – a great window treatment for nearly any style.  Don’t forget the room darkening style too!

What’s especially cool is that they’re kind of a blind and shade in one!  Soft fabric panes are suspended between 2 sheer fabric layers giving you a beautiful view outside when you want it and privacy when you don’t.  Unique, gorgeous and a bargain this month!

4th of July cupcakes mean sugary fun

And now for something completely different…  Here are a few of our favorite holiday-themed cupcakes to fill in for that last minute dessert you’ve been searching for.

Pop rock cupcakes with firecracker truffle toppers – explosively delicious!


So dramatic – we love this pretty black icing meets metallic edible paint technique!


Simple is good – grab a Ziploc baggie, fill with patriotic icing and cut off the corner for an easy icing bag to make these fun firework-friendly cupcakes.


If you’re hosting an abstract 4th of July event this week, these cupcakes are your best bet:


Mini cupcakes in push-pop form, what’s not to love?


The Blinds.com family wishes you a beautiful, safe and sunny 4th of July celebration.  Do have anything exciting planned for your holiday?  Do share!
