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

Creating an Outdoor Room in Your Home

Even if you’re on a budget or dealing with time restraints, it’s possible to create an outdoor living space for entertaining and time with your family. A few of my favorite ideas will help you accomplish your goals!

While we’ve made even more updates to this space since these images were taken, this Fourth of July party is still one of my favorites! Find more of my favorite outdoor entertaining ideas 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.

Fourth of July Decorations go Great with Wine

It just so happens that two of my favorite things also come in red and white, perfect for a patriotic party – wine! Paired with classic brass elements 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!
