~our red white & blue dining room~

Here's a little 4th decor I whipped up for our dining room.
I LOVE the 4th of July, it's one of my favorite holidays!
Hope you can pull some inspiration from my photos, there are a lot of them.....

 Our new bar cart got some fabric flags
 and I even found sparkling blueberry juice at Trader Joes. 
 The hutch got a little makeover too.
I left everything mostly monochromatic, the only color being from the flags and the red apples.
The flowers are mock orange and they smell delicious!


 I left on my usual grain sack table runner from Dreamy Whites
 The silverware holders started out as a belt I found at a thrift store.
 I just cut 5" sections and wrapped around the silverware bundles 
and secured on the back with a safety pin.



 The napkins are actually just vintage ticking fabric I had, cut to size. I didn't even hem them, just left the edges raw and ironed them.

 I just scored this vase at a thrift store, guess it was my lucky day! 





 Have you started decorating for the fourth yet?
I'm off to go soak up some of this sunshine!
xoxo

I am in luv!!!
*Hangs head in shame* I have never decorated for the 4th. We usually hang our flag and do a cookout. Your post has inspired me to get busy!!! Tons of inspiration here.
Thanks. :-)I am now motivated to get my red, white and blue on.
Hugs, Gee

As a former nursing home and rehab employee I would have NEVER thought to use a gait belt for 4th of July decor. So creative!

Anything with a red, white and blue theme catches my eye...

All about the patriotic mood...Give me a front porch on a farm house, a flag blowing in the wind and a picket fence and that's what it's all about to me. Home sweet home.

Loved the images. Keep it up!

I enjoy decorating for the big 4th...in fact, the coke crate & flashcards I received from you years ago are two of my favorite items to use each year. As usual, I am inspired by your decor & love to update my home by copying you ;) but can we discuss your white oval platters??!!?? Are they vintage? My goodness gracious they are divine...I am obsessed!!!! Thanks in advance for the info! Xoxo

OHHH I love it!!! I have not started decorating for the 4th yet... but am totally inspired now!! I love how you used just enough of the red white and blue to make it stand out, but it's calm and not overboard :) Great job!! ~Bre

I can't decide what I love best about all these details! From the hutch to the table to the belts.. I am amazed. You're so talented!

oh my goodness...so much inspiration.
I LOVE the 4th, too, but I haven't pulled out anything yet.

We leave for vacation in two days, so I guess I'll pull all my red, white and blue out when we get back.

Yours looks fabulous!
