Decorating For The 4th Of July

Hello Friends!
Whew! What a heatwave that has set in around here with even warmer temps on the way.
I hope you are all staying cool where you are.
Do you decorate for the 4th?
I usually don't but I sure found some neat ideas on Pinterest. For the home and sweet to eat. 
Some are so simple I just have to try them! How cute is the watermelon and the flag fern?
All photos can be found on my board called July 4th. Check it out for the individual links.

I hope your holiday celebration is happy and safe. Enjoy!
Thanks to all of you who entered my recent giveaway. I appreciate each of you.
And the winner is...Gypsy Heart. Congrats to Pat!

I'm so excited! I really appreciate being able to enter this giveaway.

These photos are gorgeous! I usually don't decorate much either...a few flags and a wreath on the door. The food is beautiful and I'm starving!

Hope you have a fun and safe holiday~

I didn't decorate too much until my sons went into the military. Now I'm all about decorating for the USA!!

I think I've pinned some of those same ideas. They are all so cute. I'm decorating a little because we will have part of our family here. I'll probably share next week. Have a wonderful holiday, Melissa!

Happy 4th to you ~ thanks for the inspirations! <3

Those are some great ideas for the 4th! I have never seen the one with the cupcakes lined up to look like the American flag. Cute! I usually hang some flags outside on my porch and maybe a banner or two. I don't do any of that inside though. Red, white and blue don't go with my colors. Ha!

Kris said...

Ha, I just left Pinterest thinking I was done but now I have to go pin some of these! lol I love that second picture with the flag draped over the classic and gorgeous!
Wonderful ideas, have fun and I'm sure you'll make everything lovely as always! I usually just do little flags in the front urns but my holiday stuff is still in storage. :)
Happy 4th!
