July 4th Decorations

Red, white, and blue are the colors we’ll see a lot during this time of year. With July 4th coming up, stores everywhere are getting into the spirit and trying to get us to buy decorations from them! Honestly though, you don’t have to spend a ton of money to decorate your own home for the holiday.

Flags galore! — One of the easiest and my favorite way to decorate for Independence Day, is to put flags everywhere! You can find some small/mini flags for around $0.50 at Party City or bigger ones at the dollar store. I stick these in jars or vases with flowers, make banners out of them, stick them in my yard, tape them on walls and doors, and so much more.

DIY July 4th Tank

Patriotic food — Food might be one of the most fun things for me to decorate. There are SO many options! If you want to take the next step from a typical red, white, and blue frosted cupcakes, I like to use blueberries and strawberries or raspberries to keep the color scheme going. If you’re a fan of chocolate covered strawberries, try dipping them in white chocolate and then dipping the bottom of the dipped half in sprinkles!

Outfit — Decorating doesn’t have to be difficult. You can even decorate yourself! I like wearing shades of red, white, and blue. For instance an outfit that I’ve worn before: a chambray blouse, red jeans, and white wedges or flats. I also have little American flag earrings and ones in the shape of the United States too!

Red, white, and blue — As the last thing I do when I’m decorating for the Fourth of July, I really just focus on anything that I may have that are red, white, and blue. I’m talking streamers, tablecloths, pillows, cups and plates, utensils, napkins! You get the idea.

It’s really easy to decorate as long as you keep your eyes open for red, white, and blue supplies. Even if you don’t have American flags, people will understand by looking at the colors. What are some things you do to decorate for July 4th? Share with me in the comments!
