If you have family and friends going to, it's always great to add a patriotic style to your house for the unique occasion.
Your Front Porch
Impression are so memorable when you go to someone's house for a special occasion. Just add little American flags to your plantings to represent your patriotic event if you have hanging baskets or other containers on your deck. House Depot, Lowe's, Target, Wal-Mart and other American sellers like dollar shops and even grocery stores constantly stock fundamental patriotic designs at this time of year. If you do not have a complete size American flag hanging on your deck or near your front door, this one purchase is the best way to develop a patriotic welcome at your home.
In Your Kitchen
Red, white and blue flowers are an easy focal point for the 4th of July. Hydrangeas are great for the blue, and dahlias or zinnias been available in red or white. Roses, daisies, or other flowers growing in your garden (or found at your regional floral designer) can also be utilized to produce a red, white and blue plan. You could also choose one patriotic recipe to leave out, such as a simple sheet cake iced with Cool Whip, topped with a 'flag' made of blueberry 'stars' and strawberry 'stripes.' Select patriotic-themed linens for your tables- even if they are plastic for the outside tables!
Patriotic Backyard Décor
Large flag boodles, 'firecracker' centerpieces, and patriotic-colored candle lights are terrific ways to include some 4th of July style to your yard. You can make a simple little focal point like the one in the photo utilizing an empty Ball jar, some white sand, a tea light, some seashells and some read blue and white wired ribbon to connect around the rim of each container.
