Fireworks on the Today Show + Tom Hanks

This week on the Today show, I shared a lot of great ideas for making a really festive Fourth of July with co-host, Ann Curry.  Independence Day is all about red, white, and blue and the July issue of my magazine, Martha Stewart Living, is filled with flag-themed creativity.  You can decorate cookies to look like fireworks, fill patriotic favor bags, and even dress up a bicycle with stars and stripes!  Whatever your plans are for this holiday, I wish you all a very happy and safe Fourth of July!
