Fourth of July Decorating Ideas
July the 4th marks the date of American independence. For most Americans, it also marks a date for fireworks, decorations and dinner guests. Consider these decorative ideas when planning your July the fourth celebrations.
Build a bouquet with flowers: Colorful and fragrant flowers are a great addition to any room. White hydrangeas or carnations in a red or blue vase should invoke a simple, yet elegant all-American feeling. For a more elaborate display, incorporate other flowers, such as red roses and blue violets to complete the patriotic palette.
Add colors to your home: Visit your local novelty store for cloths, balloons, flags and other holiday decorations. Emphasize our flag’s colors on furniture. Red, white and blue seat covers or throw pillows add festive accents to set the mood. For decorations on a budget, gather red and blue cloths, bandanas, or even old denim jeans, and fasten them between seat covers or throw pillows on your couch.
Add some color to your holiday menu: Dress your table and snack trays with festive place settings. Use little flag toothpicks for sandwiches or hors d’oeuvres. Set out red white and blue lollipops in mason jars. Welcome your guests, family members or yourself with these colorful treats. Refresh your guests with cold drinks. Garnish drinks with blueberries and strawberries to give your cool refreshments some festive colors.
