Fourth of July Decorations

Hi there! I can't believe we're already getting ready for the 4th of July! I hope the summer doesn't go by too fast. :) We got some much needed rain yesterday and I'm so thankful. We needed it badly. While it was raining, I spent the day inside cleaning my house and washing sheets. Then I spent 5 hours getting four posts ready for the blog. I recently painted my barstools, so look for a post on that soon. Anyway, I finally got my patriotic decor up, so I thought I'd share it with you.


This is our welcome sign by the front door. 


The entry was kept pretty simple. I just added a couple of stars to the top of this cloche.






The mantel got minimal decor too with a wooden star, a metal "God Bless The USA" heart and a couple of patriotic bears.

This little pillow is hanging on our armoire in the living room.


It was literally pouring down rain right before I took this pic, but here are a couple of flags I added to my gomphrena flowers on the patio. 


It's a little hard to see, but the ivy on top of the fridge is holding a few flag pics. 




I love this dishcloth with the cupcakes. :)


This is my lone decoration on the buffet in the kitchen. 




And that's it! Do you decorate for the 4th?

    1. Thanks, Sherri! I think I got all of it on clearance through the years after the holiday was over. It's amazing what you can get the day AFTER a holiday. :) I was at Kohl's today and they already had 60% off theirs. Anyway, hope you have a wonderful, relaxing weekend!

    1. Thanks, Carolyn! I love decorating for the 4th because I don't have too many things and it literally takes me 5 minutes to get it all out, and 5 minutes to put away. :) Hope you're having a great weekend!

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Barbara! I'm so much happier with that new furniture. I'm really starting to lean toward a lighter and brighter color palette in my home. Hope you have a great week!

  10. Love your decor. I did not decorated for the 4th. It is just me and the hubby and I felt like it was just too much trouble to put it all away. I hope when I retire, I will feel more like my old self.

    1. Thank you, Susan! Sometimes I feel that way too. I'm excited to get it all out, but it's a different story when it's time to put it all away. :) At least with my July 4th decor it was only one box. :) Hope you have a safe and fun day tomorrow!
