Today it is all about simple 20 minute decorating ideas- and with this being the week of the 4th of July- I thought I would share a few ideas for adding a bit of red, white and blue to your home and table for any get togethers you may be planning.
4th Of July 20 Minute Decorating
First up- Let’s talk decorating. The best thing about the 4th of July for decorating? It is SO EASY. All you need to do is grab a few of those $1 tiny flags at the market and place them nearly anywhere for instant patriotic charm.
4th of July Flags
I love them in a tiny pitcher or bottle
and on the mantle outside
or on the side table in a little bottle.
And my favorite – a vintage flag in the greenhouse. You can also do this on a barn, the side of your house or on your porch. It instantly adds patriotic charm.
4th of July On The Table
For a festive table- think of layering blue, white and a pop of red or pink with flowers. You can use cut flowers like these roses or maybe something in a pot like red geraniums with or without little mini flags tucked into the branches.
Layers of Festive Lovely
You don’t need to bring out the Americana or flags if you don’t want to. Layers of the red, white and blue with place settings- white plates, blue goblets and flatware tied with red ribbons for example.
A Festive Cake
One of my favorites – creating a cake that looks festive and is delicious. This cake is from my 1st book French Country Cottage. And the best part- you don’t have to bake to create this. Simply take a pre-made bakery cake and top it with raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, etc. and add a few sprigs of rosemary for a finishing touch. Mini roses are optional of course.
Such a pretty way to celebrate.
Your family and guests will love how it looks and how it tastes- it is decadent!
