Decorating for the 4th of July- The Ultimate Guide
There is hardly a day as important and as teeming with historic value as the 4th of July. The spirit of freedom can be almost felt in the air and we go to great lengths to summon it. This is your opportunity to fulfill the patriotic duty and also wow the guests. It is time to think about décor, drinks, and treats and get your creative juices flowing. So, here is how to decorate your home in the spirit of the Independence Day and make the magic happen.
United colors of the states
When decorating, you want to cover basic 4th of July themes. Naturally, red, white, and blue dominate the visual landscape. There is a plethora of ways that these tones can be used. Note, for instance, that you can make an impression even before guests enter the home: Paint the pots with the holy trinity of colors and match them with appropriate flowers.
I have also seen amazing starry night decoration on the lawns, near the entrance to the yard. This is certainly a nice, stellar welcome to anyone you invited over. Besides, the only two basic tools that you need are flour and stencils. And once inside, people should make no mistake of what the gathering is about. Capture their imagination and let your patriotic flag fly.
Flags of our fathers
Nothing says Independence Day like a flag centerpiece. Flags do come in all sizes, so you can also tuck them around the edges of a vase or water bottles. Alternatively, use miniature flags to assemble complex, attention-grabbing centerpieces on the table or around the home. Of course, it is also possible to use stripe and star motifs throughout the living environment.
There is no shortage of pieces that cost only a few bucks, yet make a big impact. Another option is to go DIY and make something like a July 4th chair cover. Indeed, cloth napkin slipcovers are easy to make and they are sure to spark interest. The same goes for the pinwheels and paper rockets that mimic the fireworks we like to see on the big day.
A party garland is also a nice addition to the independence-day landscape. Basically, you need to cut red, white, and blue plastic tablecloths into strips and then tie them to a set of string lights. In addition, try to think multipurpose. A tinted or a dip-dye fan can serve as a décor piece on the wall, but also helps the guests stay cool.
Furthermore, adorn dessert with festive toothpicks once can find at a grocery or crafts store. Give your table a makeover with some patriotic table decorations such as bandana runners and candles. Just avoid creating too much visual noise and cluttering the space. Do not go overboard with tablescape and use pieces strategically when designing the space.
It goes without saying that you want to keep the party going with drinks and food. And sooner or later, the guests will want to pay bathroom a visit, so it is not advisable to neglect this room. In fact, it is a good idea to surprise people with well-though solutions here. Check out designer bathroom accessories as well as luxury accessories. You should be able to find patriotic bathroom sets, rugs, shower curtains, beach towels, etc.
Holiday decorating is an exciting and rewarding undertaking, a great way to make the most of the festive experience. So, why not invest some time and money and have a grand 4th of July celebration? You can give your guests a feast for both their eyes and tummies. Take on fun and exciting craft projects and deck your home in red, white, and blue. Capture the essence of the Independence Day and let it be a day to remember.
