Simple Fourth of July Decor

Simple Fourth of July Decor

Happy almost July! Today I am sharing how I decorated my home for the Fourth of July.

This year I kept it super simple and just added a few pieces here and there into my everyday decor.

Maybe it’s just the season of life I am in, but I have scaled back on my decor this year. With a 2 and 4 year old home with me all day we have been making so many messes and I have felt like the less things out – the better and easier it is to clean and maintain. I am 32 weeks pregnant with our third now so my energy has been almost non existent! However, you can still create a beautiful patriotic display with only adding a few key pieces.

I don’t go out and spend tons of money on decor each season and I don’t have as much as many other people, but I think it’s important to remember that it’s okay to have humble beginnings. Rome was not built in a day and your seasonal decor collection should not be built in a day either!

Front Porch

The outside of your home is just as important as the inside. You don’t have to spend a fortune to get it to look beautiful but sprucing it up with some fresh flowers in a pot and wiping your door down can do wonders! I love to add seasonal flowers in my flower pots and I throw in some little flags just to give it that extra pop of patriotism.

I love to add garden flags, too! I got this one here this year from Hobby Lobby and it’s adorable. I’ve also seen a lot of great affordable seasonal decor pieces on Jane.com so be sure to check them out if you feel like you aren’t finding something you love in stores.

Entryway

I like to keep my entryway table simple since this seems to be where guests put their purse and keys when they come over. And let’s be real, it usually becomes the mail pile spot too. I have an antique window that I layered a magnolia wreath on year round and I just added this sweet banner to it.

Living Room

Styling my mantle is one of my favorite things to do each season. There are so many different ways to decorate it which keeps things fun and interesting! I have been on a houseplant spree lately so I keep my neon pothos up here and I just added some star wooden blocks and a simple sign I have had for years. I think this banner from strips of fabric adds a fun touch to the space!

Above my piano I added a DIY flag that I made from ribbon this year. It was a super fun DIY and if y’all want to know how I did it, let me know and I can make a post on it! It adds an almost vintage feel to that corner of the room which I am loving this year.

Dining Room

In the summer we all spend so much more time at home and keeping things simple is key to having a no fuss decor. I don’t know about y’all but we spend so much time at our dining room table enjoying meals, crafts, or just playing a board game together.

I didn’t want to put together a tablescape I am constantly moving so I decided to stick to a simple center piece. I grabbed one of my demijohn bottles and threw in 2 larger flags. I love how easy and effortlessly beautiful this turned out. Whenever I need to move it off the dining table I put it up on my cabinet beside the table and it looks beautiful there as well!

My hubby and I installed our pipe shelving late last year and I love being able to add decor on them. I am still trying to figure out how I want to style them, but for now I have a few things that I just added some little stars from Hobby Lobby in my cloche and sprinkled in some flags.

I hope I was able to inspire y’all and give you ideas to decorate your homes for the Fourth of July! Next week I am bringing you my favorite summertime dessert featuring my Grandpa’s homemade ice cream recipe. Everyone who has tried it says it is the most delicious ice cream they’ve ever had!

Thanks for being here, friends!
