Our Patriotic Great Room ...

Greetings, friends!

Here we are ... just a few days before July 4th!  

I wanted to share our simple patriotic great room before the day of celebration comes and goes.  


While I know that many aren't fans of white furniture, I absolutely love it (especially this time of year when it's the perfect backdrop for red and blue)!

On our mantel, a simple oversized star takes center stage above a cute patriotic garland I found at Target.


I dug into our Christmas bins to grab a few small Christmas balls for the topiaries, along with the red tiny beads to fill the vase and add more seasonal color!


Over on our sofa, a festive flag pillow dresses it up ... it's all about easy and inexpensive decorating!


Our Christmas stash was visited again so that I could bring out our red and white checked pillow covers.


How cute is this wooden "flag" that I found at a fabulous local shop "Simply Beautiful Spaces?"


Over by the window, it took all of two seconds to tuck in flags I had on hand into this arrangement.  



Christmas decor came out to play again with me propping this red star here in the corner.  What's that saying?  Christmas in July?


Besides its patriotic nod to all things Americana, there's just something so "Summer-y" about our good ol' red, white and blue, isn't there?  I might have to leave it up a bit longer after the weekend's celebration!


Thanks for visiting ... Happy 4th!!

I need those stars and banner....I missed seeing that at Target but truthfully haven't been but one time since all the "bathroom" drama.

Your mantle is beautiful but wouldn't expect anything less from you!

It all looks fabulous, Becca! I dug out my red flatware for my table for the 4th! I will be posting that tomorrow if you want to stop over. Love the red stars and the flag pillow! Right now I am summerizing the house with my lARGE shell collection:)
