    4th of July Decorations to Add a Spark to Any Home

    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. The simplest additions will create an incredible impact!

    When we bought our home, one of the biggest changes we made was updating this dark and dated screened-in porch. You can get all the details on this makeover and see all the “before” photos here

    Add Vintage Pieces for a Touch of Americana

    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.

    Balance the Americana Decor with Fresh Flowers

    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, and I am thrilled to teach you how to arrange these beautiful blooms, as well as how to revive them. Yes- it’s true! Did you know you can revive wilted hydrangea? Check out all these incredible ideas for incorporating fresh blooms into your home and events this summer.
