Quick Fourth of July Decoration Ideas / by Erin Mulvany

Summer is a busy time and holidays can sneak up on us without warning. Seriously. It has been raining so much down here in the South that no one would even know we’re approaching 4th of July. SURPRISE, it is just days away! If you haven’t planned your Independence Day bash or aren’t attending someone else’s, here’s a quick way to make your get-together a splash! 

Don’t panic about not having it all, the best thing about 4th of July is that is already has a backyard feel so a picnic table or any type of wood accept you may have at your home can get you where you need to go. Now all you need it to add some red, white and blue and you’re well on your way to having the perfect summer party. 

I love fresh flowers, I think they can add a pop of color where you need it or become a centerpiece regardless of the table size. All white arrangements are my favorite, but if you need that pop of color, Blue Statices, Red Roses in a white vase or mason jar is a great 4th of July centerpiece.  

Lighting is everything when you’re out late in the backyard. String lights are not only romantic, but they’re a great decoration item as well. Check out these decorative string lights from World Market. 

Last but not least is the first thing your guests will see, your door mat. Check out our last blog about how to make your own custom doormat! Make yours into an American Flag, red, white and blue stars or even have a cute patriotic chevron print pattern!
