This 4th of July, outshine the fireworks. These patriotic decoration tips will help you fill your backyard with all kinds of red, white, and blue fun!
Outdoor Star Lanterns
Using white paper bags and red and blue construction paper, you can create a collection of red, white, and blue outdoor lanterns. Cut the construction paper into stars, slightly smaller than the width of the paper bags.
Using glue, attach one star to each bag. Fill each bag with an inch or two of sand and arrange them throughout your yard. When the sun goes down, place a lit tea light in each bag and they’ll glow!
Select a simple vase. (You could use anything you have on hand, including a mason jar!) Tie red and blue ribbons around the outside. Add white hydrangeas. And you there you go! A patriotic arrangement is that simple!
July 4th tends to be a bit warm. Help your guests cool down with a tasty treat that offers a patriotic vibe – while they last! Make your homemade popsicles in advance – using red and blue juices. Get the “how to” on these handheld desserts.
On the 4th of July you can’t go wrong with flags. String a flag banner over your doorway for a simple pop of patriotic fun.
Another way to add a bit of patriotic fun to your 4th of July décor is adding mini flags to your centerpieces. What's the best part of this decoration? It takes hardly any time!
Have white every-day dishes? Place a red charger beneath them and outfit your table with a blue runner to give your tablescape an instant pop of red, white, and blue.
Another simple way to add a patriotic pop is swapping out your existing outdoor pillows with red and blue ones.
