Taylor Swift took advantage of her huge mansion in Rhode Island to celebrate Independence Day, inviting dozens of famous friends over for a weekend-long party.
Swift started early with models Jaime King and Amanda Griffith, baking an American Flag cake in the musician's $18 million dollar mansion. Swift name-dropped celebrity chef Ina Garten in her caption, writing, "Look @inagarten !!!! We wish you were here-- love, TS, @jaime_king @amandygriffith." King and Swift also dove into a pool on inflatable animals in another picture from the day, captioned, "jaime_king and I never enter a pool casually."
July 4th was a rainy mess in New England thanks to Hurricane Arthur, but that didn't seem slow down Swift's weekend. She wrote, "When the 4th of July gives you nonstop rain, make a giant slip n slide," with a photo of herself sliding down a hill on an inflatable turtle.
After that her group of friends hit the beach in a series of photos, Swift writing "Ocean State," and, "Sea Stampede."
Finally, at the end of the weekend, Taylor posted a photo of all of her friends with the caption "Family portrait." In photo are Emma Stone, Jessica Szohr, Jessica Stam, Odeya Rush, Jaime King, Ingrid Michaelson, and Lena Dunham. Quite a family!
