Nothing says summer like blackberries, and I love bringing a flower pot full of berries to a Fourth of July celebration.  This hostess gift is yummy, unexpected, easy, and affordable!  Blackberries are only in season for a short time and so they are a real treat.

They aren’t just for the Fourth of July- change the ribbon and liner and use it for any summer party.

AND, if you are the hostess…serve them in these adorable little pots for the children big and small.  Everyone loves their tiny size~ and they look so cute on THE PASTRY PEDESTAL.

The tiny terra cotta pots already have a hole in the bottom and so they fit perfectly onto the pedestals.

The cute paper circles on the bottom of the pedestals are from LAUREN MCKINSEY DESIGNS.

All of these pots of berries are easy to assemble.  I found the terra cotta pots at Michael’s.  The waxed paper liner for the pots are from Michael’s in the baking section.  Regular tissue paper and regular waxed paper will work too!  Ribbon is also from Michae’s~

Super easy, super fun, super affordable!
