Red,White and Blue Decorations
July party decorations are a fun way to celebrate all the holiday. Here is an idea using old vintage decor on your party table.
I love using patriotic party supplies that are sitting around my house so here I used anything I could find that had all the American flag colors to create a patriotic table setting. Patriotic celebrations are so fun! I created another table using the same red white blue decorations but a different centerpiece for fourth July.
Here is a 4th of July tablescape idea that is filled with red, white, and blue color schemes. It was so fun and inspiring until I couldn't wait to share more ideas for a July celebration. So, let's start outside on my small front porch for more patriotic decorations.
Patriotic Small Front Porch
I want to encourage you to think of your front porch whether it is small or large as another room of your home. This space is an indication of what guests will receive inside.
So here are a few easy changes that instantly give it patriotic feels.
Starting at the top and working our way down begin with adding a patriotic wreath or garland around the door. I have had this wreath for many years and I am still not tired of it so if you have a wreath you can put up for each patriotic holiday go ahead and include it.
One thing I changed on this wreath this year as opposed to last year is the way it is hung. In my 4th of July decorating ideas last year I hung the wreath with a metal hanger. This year I decided on a ribbon for a softer touch.
Another inexpensive and fun touch is adding these Target dollar spot pinwheels to the planter.
Simply drop a few pinwheels for flags in your planter and like magic, you have given your planter some red, white, and blue decorations.
Talk about easy!
And last for the front porch pick up a red, white, and/or blue rug to layer your doormat. I found this one on clearance and boy did it transform the front porch with color.
Now let's walk in the front door and give our guest a little more independence day feels in the entryway.
Here are some more easy ideas and cheap too. Again I raided the dollar spot at Target and pulled out a few of my own items from last year.
Starting from the top I added a stick American stick flags to my lamb's ear wreath to give it a July wreath vibe. This wreath get's decorated all year long. I got the wreath from an Etsy shop called The Whimsical Door. She has loads of other amazing wreaths but this one is versatile.
There are so many places you can add stick flags. You can add them to flower arrangements, plants, or wreaths as I did here.
Next, add some metal stars or something similar to the side of your mirror or art. I used a tiny little nail so there would be a small hole to fill once I take the stars down.
Now let's take a few steps into my kitchen where I added a couple of simple touches.
There is something special about adding holiday decor to your kitchen area. I have a small sitting room attached to my kitchen.
If you have a hutch in your home consider adding a pennant banner to the hutch. I have a pennant banner free printable where you can make your own.
It is really easy to make if you have basic sewing skills. You can add this one to your hutch, china cabinet, bookcase, or anywhere. Or you can shop for one like I did this year.
To add more patriotic pride to your hutch decorations try this presidents silhouettes DIY. This is our newest addition. I like coming up with decorations that fit the theme, have a little history behind it but are not the usual idea.
George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Thomas Jefferson were just the ticket. Aren't they cute?!!
Now let's head back to the living room which is the last room where I added some patriotic touches.
Living Room Mantle
This year I went all out on the mantle. What I mean is that I decided to make some art to use on the fireplace mantle each year.
Since the mantle is the heart of the home I feel like holiday decorations are not complete until the mantle fits into the design.
Keeping things inexpensive I was inspired by this “liberty” wood letter cutout and an old canvas frame I found at Goodwill.
This project is super easy. Using the frame I was able to add a shiplap look, paint it with Fusion mineral paint, and add the “liberty” lettering. And now I have some art for the mantle.
Here is how to make a DIY farmhouse sign if you would like to make one too. But if making a piece is not your thing consider hanging a flag here for your July decorations. It brings a home design together when you include the mantle.
Well, there you have some ideas for red, white and blue decorations for your patriotic holiday. I hope you have been inspired to do some independence day decorating in your home. Or maybe I should say July 4th, flag day, presidents day, labor day, memorial day. Okay, I think you get the picture.
Did you know you can pull out these decorations before memorial day and leave them out all summer long? Yes, you can have a patriotic spirit the whole summer. It is the best time of year to decorate with an Americana theme. Which makes this style of decor even better.
