Hey there! I hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend! We ended up going to Raleigh for the weekend and it was glorious. My husband has had to work a lot recently, so having a weekend off to relax with family was so nice. We ate way too much food, enjoyed some fireworks, and even went kayaking down a river!

After this weekend, I was feeling very inspired by all of the patriotic decor I saw. There are so many fun ways to decorate using red, white, and blue. Obviously this works great for the 4th of July, but it can also be used for Labor Day or just a fun summer cook-out!


Beans and Jars

I love these fun jars! This is such a simple way to incorporate some red, white, and blue into your home decor. Love it!

Paper Umbrella Wreath

Okay, I may need to go make this right now. This wreath is so adorable and obviously very patriotic!


I have always loved a good banner. How cute would this be hanging from your mantle? Or your front porch?

Place Setting

How fun is this place setting for a summer cook-out? When you are serving burgers and hot dogs, it’s always nice to keep things casual. That doesn’t mean it can’t be cute though! 😉


Speaking of cute and casual – I love this line up of utensils!

Here’s to hoping you all have many cook-outs to decorate for this summer! I know that these ideas have inspired me to throw one soon!

Thanks for reading!
