Hi everyone, this year feels like it is flying. I mean it is almost the trifecta for patriotic holidays with Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day in a matter of months. These easy patriotic decor ideas came from my neighbor, Du.
Duanna doesn’t just decorate for the 4th she begins in May and celebrates the entire summer. On a side note, this cherry and blueberry dessert is perfect for the summer holidays.
EASY PATRIOTIC DECOR IDEAS
I loved this idea for so many reasons I decided to create patriotic decor ideas for the summer.
Last year I bought these blue and white gingham cloth napkins. I love them and use them for multiple holidays but they were a little pricier for a napkin.
So I bought these in navy and white and love them. They are larger, heavier and cheaper.
Perfect for bbq and s’mores. I found these galvanized napkin rings for a little more than a coffee beverage. I ordered a dozen.
I love to buy seasonal and holiday plates, but they can be pricey. So I buy the salad or appetizer size and stack it on top of my everyday plates. These are heart plates I found last year at Williams-Sonoma. The red and white work for the summer holidays. It’s all about love and respect for our military families and our country!
Tip: If they are holiday plates I order them in the salad size and stack them on my everyday dishes.
A few years ago I ordered a scrolled monogram here and use it around the house for “red” holidays. ;0)
The morning of every holiday in between baking or eating I get online for a few minutes and shop the clearance/sale section of my favorite home stores. I picked these enamel plates up last year after Labor Day. I wrapped them and placed them under the Christmas tree.
If you want to get crafty, check out what I did when I couldn’t find navy plates.
My mom buys me new dish towels every year when I host a holiday dinner. She turned me onto these and I love them.
Thanks for stopping by today. I would love it if you signed up for my Saturday-only newsletter for one-hour projects.
