4th of July decorations are a fun way to create a patriotic home. They also make your Independence Day cookout fabulous. Whether you want to jazz up your porch, pop some red white and blue into your living room or serve red, white and blue desserts, showing your American spirit is easy with these ideas.
Suzy at Worthington Court creates this fabulous patriotic front porch for her Independence day celebrations. She used some wooden bifold doors as her backdrop. The chalk-painted chair cushions are accented with cute throw pillows. She bought the red and white striped pillows and added a patriotic sash to each. The painted chest is the perfect perch for her Ikea lantern, painted flag blocks in an old Coke crate and a charming antique truck. This front porch is going to get noticed this July 4th!
This 4th of July decorations wreath project is as easy as it is fun. A red wire ribbon sprinkled with stars is wrapped around the grapevine wreath and finished in a bow. Add some accents such as patriotic stars. These are further embellished with ties and buttons. How cute!
Courtney at A Diamond in the Stuff knows how to gear up for a party. Mason jars have been famous for decorating for a while now but you have to admit these are amazing. Get ready for your July 4th cookout and use these patriotic jars for holding straws, utensils, party favors, decor and more!
Repurpose that old pallet into something lovely. One of the 4th of July decorations I admire is flags made from pallets. If you know how to use a paintbrush, you can do this. The whole beauty of the project is its simplicity and imperfection. Prop it up on your porch or lean it against a tree in the front yard.
What an inviting layout! Between Naps on the Porch shows us how to prepare for celebration in style. Red white and blue lanterns make easy centerpieces. She further dresses up this table with star centerpieces, pops of confetti, gorgeous flatware, pretty martini glasses, elegant red dinner napkins and tea candles.
Stacey of Signed by Soden dresses up the corner of her porch with a mix of red, white and blue. The charming and friendly decor is the perfect idea for those of us who have small spaces to decorate. I adore that pillow!
