Summer holidays are a great time to do some outdoor entertaining. Decorating for these outdoor festivities can be either elaborate or simply understated. For the 4th of July, the ideas can be fairly simple. Stars and stripes and red, white and blue, combined in various arrangements, are all that is really needed.
It was easy to add some patriotic flair to my little bistro table. A lantern with blue glass is set off nicely with some red berry garland. A perfect place to sit and have my morning coffee in my stars and stripes mug!
I came up with a collection of more 4th of July ideas that will definitely set a patriotic mood to your outdoor decorating.
Round-up Of 4th Of July Ideas:
I want to be invited to this party! The whole menu and display is completely festive for the 4th of July. I love how the glass vases are wound with ribbon or string to coordinate with the decor.
Here is an example of some rustic understated simplicity. The red and white stripes make quite a statement with the flag hanging on the barn wood. Of course the red bench and truck add quite a bit to the setting too!
This unique rustic wreath with red, white and blue embellishments is a nice way to welcome guests in to your outdoor party.
A perfect way to decorate and entertain is to serve your drinks in festive stemware! A blue ice bucket and some star fruit are perfect additions.
Happy 4th Of July Decorating!
