I love July 4th.
It's such a fun-in-the-sun kind of festive holiday that's really all about celebrating good things: independence, patriotism, summer, barbecues, family and friends, and fireworks!
Today, because I'm in early celebration mode for Independence Day, I'm inspired by all the lovely colors in our country's flag.
Get inspired by some of my favorite red, white, and blue decorating ideas, DIY projects, decor items, interior designs, craft projects, place settings, and more.
I hope you'll find some fun ideas for your own home and maybe even some year-round decorating ideas that allow you to show off your everyday patriotic flair with style!
