With our nation’s Independence Day fast approaching, it’s time to start preparing for your celebrations. Whether you choose to spend the holiday relaxing with family or putting on an extravagant party for your friends, we’ve got you covered with these awesome 4th of July tips!
Red White and Blue!
Synonymous with the 4th of July are the colors red, white, and blue. These patriotic colors never go out of style and incorporating white as a base while accenting it with different shades of red and blue is a great way to liven up a room without giving it a tacky feel. Consider showcasing a vintage American flag as the center piece of a room, as it allows you to flaunt your national pride in an elegant manner. Finally little fringe pieces such as themed flowers, tablecloths, and ornamental food dishes will make your celebrations feel complete.
New to hosting parties? Well, feel free to relax because creating an enjoyable backyard soirée is easier than you think. Pull up a grill and let the good times roll with 4th of July classics like burgers, hot dogs, and sweet corn that are sure to keep your guests’ hunger satiated, and for your vegetarian company, perhaps a delicious gilled margherita pizza would take their fancy. Decorate your backyard or patio with light hearted décor such as floral table linens, string lights, and festive candles to compliment the summer landscape
Arts and Crafts
Incorporating your own arts and crafts into your Independence Day decorating is a great way to get the kids involved while saving a little extra for your wallet. Using something as simple and inexpensive as paper can lend to countless possibilities such as cool red, white, and blue paper rockets or star shaped cut out placemats. Use your creativity and let the imagination flow!
There are many ways to honor our countries’ independence, from firework shows to bonfires with friends, that there will be no shortage of celebrating come July 4th. We at Flooring America wish you and your family a happy 4th of July and hope you thoroughly enjoy whichever way you choose to spend it!
