We’ve gathered some red, white, and blue decor inspiration. For ease, we’re breaking this inspiration into time sensitive categories.
A few days before the nation wide celebration, get in the mood with some or all of these projects:
A patriotic wreath is a simple way to add charm to your exterior.
String paper garland in the trees, a fence, the food table or anywhere else. Stars are cute.
Though so are circles.
Two or so days before the party:
Mmm, cupcakes. Even cuter with star toppers.
Corn on the cob-esque cupcakes follow a bbq and real corn on the cob wonderfully.
A super simple centerpiece of colored water and candles. Ambiance and simplicity.
Seersucker napkins are easy-going.
And, for last-minute flare, try these:
For another fun splash, add a few drops of food coloring to make even ice water fun.
Make a fresh treat in a snap. White chocolate and sprinkle dipped strawberries.
Make chocolate and sprinkle dipped pretzel sticks while you have the
mess supplies out.
Decorate your lawn with sifted flour stars. Fun for the whole family.
Nothing says summer more than a gooey s’more. And food is always more fun on a stick, right? Hence the lure of the state fair. Combine the two for a cute treat. I would probably alter this recipe by dipping the marshmallow in chocolate, then graham cracker, then chocolate again, and finally sprinkles.
Also, we have two winners of Jessica Alpern store credits. Number 69, Sarah is the $30 credit winner. Laura J, number 87 has a $45 shop credit to spend on Jessica’s fantastic work! Congratulations!
In all honesty, we’ll probably only do one or two of these. We’re more of party goers, not hostesses. Which are you? Other than displaying a flag, do you decorate for the fourth? If so, what are your tricks?
