It’s almost 4th of July!! One of our favorite times of the year and it’s so many reasons why. It means a festive, fun time with family, friends and fireworks (try saying that 5 times fast). Oh, let’s not forget the food!
Since we also eat with our eyes, you want to make sure your setting is as inviting as your dishes. Let’s look at some ways to make your interior look like shine as bright as the fireworks!

Your table can be as elaborate or simple as you want, but with so much going on around the holiday, I would opt to keep it simple. The above photo is a perfect example. A festive banner used as a table runner, lanterns of varying sizes accented with punches of color, alternating napkins with spirited napkins rings all combine to create a low maintenance but beautiful tablescape. If you have a family of my size, you will use disposable plates, cups and silverware for less cleanup afterwards.
2. Entrance is Everything!

Your front entrance sets the tone on what to expect. Add or replace your existing outdoor cushions with red, white and/or blue pillows. Also, add a representation of the American flag. Again, simple but beautiful!
3. Area Rug

Area rugs can make a big impact in any room. Choose the space that will make the biggest impact and change the rug to create festive drama!
4. Impactful Accents

The two examples above show what a difference accents can make. The first picture is arrangements of small flags while the second is a single flag over a mantle. Both are super simple but both beautifully impactful in their own way.
Incorporate these elements and make your interior shine. Happy 4th of July!
