We heart America…. AND we heart home decor! So, of course, we take the opportunity of the 4th of July to star bangle up our homes with some red, white, and blue.
Most years, we have people over to our home, enjoy some food together, and then head up to our secret fireworks spot – it’s got the best view in town and is in walking distance from our house. We love it!
Here are some pics from last year’s festivities.
A patriotic scarf served as the centerpiece for the table. Most people ate outside, but for those that wanted to cool off in some air conditioning, the kitchen table was open for business as well.
The kiddos got in on the fun, dipping some pretzels into white chocolate and coating them with sprinkles that fit the occasion. We had to have two kinds of course, regular, and gluten free for my oldest (we can’t let the GF peeps miss out on the delicious carbs!).
Since my porch is already shades of blue and white, a few red touches here and there, and a flag or two or three finished it off.
Gotta love Aldi – this stack of napkins will last me through this year as well!
When you have a friend with a giant blow up jumpy house, you take them up on the offer to bring it over for the kids.
Easiest dessert ever, and oh so pretty: blueberries and strawberries topped with some whipped cream. It’s 4th of July on a plate with minimal effort. Boom.
Tammy keeps this wooden flag on her porch to celebrate the big day. Made by our friend Heather, it’s the perfect rustic touch.
My mom keeps it simple by adding flags to her front porch pots. It’s an easy decor piece that doesn’t require much tear down effort after the fireworks are put to rest.
What do you do to decorate for the holiday?
