More 4th of July Inpiration: Flags, Flags and More Flags

We’re having a party for over 70 people on Sunday and I’m having a ball making things a little festive around here.

I may have a problem, though. I bought a bunch of American flags from Oriental Trading Company and the craft store a few weeks ago and I’m putting them everywhere!

All along my front sidewalk tucked in among the Annabelle Hydrangeas.

In my pots of ferns on the front stoop.

In my Front Door Hydrangea Basket.

And, of course, a few inside too.

Need some ideas for the 4th? Check out my Independence Day Pinterest board for a HUGE amount of inspiration!

Do you have any plans for the 4th?

Can you make it 71 people? I want to come. HOW FUN! And ordering those flags from Oriental Trading? SO SMART! WE have 100 teens coming tonight, but I am giving up on making this “party” special…more like – put out the chips and soda and let them create their own fun since I know they will not care about the decorating I had planned. ­čśë

I’ve always used a bunch of flags for 4th decorating. So inexpensive and easy and they have the perfect pop of color. Looks awesome! ­čÖé

LOVE IT! It looks so festive & I’m just loving how you are opening your home to 70 people to celebrate our country.

I also wanted to let you know (don’t have outlook so I can’t email you privately & have to now wear my heart on my sleeve) that you are one of my most favorite bloggers. I love that your style has remained rather constant while still being tweaked/improved/redone. Underneath it all you can sense your orginial style is there – only better. Please keep up the great job you do sharing not only your home but glimpses into the life you are building for your family. It is inspiring to me to continue finding our style while focusing on the things that truly make life wonderful – family, friends & freedom. Happiest 4th to you & yours!

Love the flags, this is a great way to add a personal touch to your 4th of July celebrations, dont just limit it this event try it when you have some spare time, and make a personal ornament or something to decorate a old area of the house.
