America: Home Sweet Home

The fireworks and festivities are only a week and a day away!  July Fourth is just around the corner; a holiday that has traditionally been a day for barbeques, pool parties, weekend vacations, fireworks, and, of course, the grand ole U.S. of A.  We all know that a sensational fireworks display is the highlight of July Fourth, but flaunting your most bold reds, whites, and blues becomes part of the fun.  We’ll certainly see plenty of folks wearing their red, white and blue hues and denim cut offs made to look like the American flag.  But how many people will go the extra mile to create an outdoor atmosphere that screams, “AMERICA!”?  If you’d like to be one of those people this July Fourth, or in honor of today’s USA vs Germany Cup game, we’ve got some ideas to help you go the extra mile and really get into the spirit.

Naturally flags are always the go-to decor when you’re going for something patriotic, because there’s nothing more patriotic than a flag.  Duh.  But you can get creative with your red, white and blue decor by using umbrellas, lanterns, pillows, vintage drink crates, garden stools, and incorporating these colors into the foods and drinks you serve.  The great thing about combining your red, white and blue everyday decor is you can use these items all year round.
