outdoor 4th of July decorating ideas

 I love decorating for the 4th of July!

It is such a fun holiday here at the lake where everyone gets very festive, hops from house to house, bbq to bbq, party to party.

I usually don't go too overboard with the decorating but this year I am doing a bunch outside on the deck. So if you are looking for outdoor 4th of July decorating ideas, this is for you!

Let's start with any easy tablescape for dining outdoors.

Blue and white ginger jars make the perfect vases for inexpensive flowers from Trader Joes. These are chamomile and I love the simplicity of them. You could do one big arrangement in the center, or more depending on the size of your table.


Placing a festive red white and blue table runner down the center of the table is also a great way to add to the theme. If you don't have a runner, I have been known to use a piece of fabric or even a folded sheet in place of one.


I love anything galvanized and especially in the summer. 
To me it lends itself to a laid back casual look while still being very chic. I found these galvanized charger plates and am excited to use them on many different style table settings. 



I found paper napkins and plates here.


These star glasses were a lucky thrift shop find but I found some similar ones here if you are interested.


Unrelated to the 4th of July, but I must mention.....
We are loving our new chairs! We bought these cushions to put on them. They fit perfectly and the combination is so comfy.



Since I used 2 vases, I needed something in the center. I found this neutral wood star here and thought it was the perfect filler.


  
   

 And now, moving onto the other side of the deck!

A few flags go a long way. You can pick flags up anywhere this time of year. I like to get a variety of sizes and tuck them in flower arrangements, outdoor planters, etc.

The only thing I did to make our outdoor seating area festive for the 4th, was to add flags, and swap out the pillows.


We have 2 sectionals and 2 chairs, so I really like to pile on the pillows.


I found some really fun pillows that are subtle hints of red and blue. More like a muted red, almost pink, and a light denim color.
Of course, I couldn't help but get a flag pillow too.
These ones are a great alternative to a bright white.





The chambray and muted red pillows are all from this great shop I just discovered.

Most of them actually came from the sale section where right now you can take an EXTRA 40% off the sale price! Use code EXTRA40.


The denim star pillows were from here last year. Unfortunately I don't think they are selling them this year.





 I hope you got some good ideas for your outdoor 4th of July decorating!
