4th of July Decorations | A Touch of Americana

Simple 4th of July Decorations with a touch of classic Americana

Our 4th of July decorations are just a subtle touch of Americana. One of the many things I adore about a “white” house is that it doesn’t take much effort to adapt it for the holidays or special occasions. I borrowed a friend’s vintage flag, using the eyelets to hang it from our copper curtain rods. It immediately became the focal point of the room. That’s what I love about the American flag – it’s so beautiful in both color and meaning, adding a lot of depth to the space. For that reason, I kept the rest of our 4th of July decorations on our outdoor dining room to a minimum.

I love hydrangea because they’re large and easily fill a vase. They’re the perfect “basic”, without being boring. I just remove the leaves that will fall below the top of the vase, cut to fit and voila! I have an arrangement. It doesn’t get any easier. They’re even more beautiful in my nautical rope vase, which I hope to find as soon as I start unpacking. Yes, I have a lot of unpacking to do.

It just so happens that two of my favorite things also come in red and white, perfect for a patriotic party – wine! Paired with brass and a flag hand towel, I’m set for a 4th of July party. I tend to keep our 4th of July decorations up from Memorial Day through the end of the 4th of July weekend, however, I think they’re gorgeous all summer long!

We look forward to the 4th of July parade and fireworks in our neighborhood. The girls are planning anxiously waiting to decorate their bikes and wagon. I just can’t wait to celebrate with them. What are your 4th of July plans?
