LAST MINUTE 4TH OF JULY IDEAS

What happened to June? I still have spring florals in my salvaged buckets, which is why I made time for these last-minute 4th of July ideas.

Because if I cannot find my red tulips and mini American flags to make my go-to 4th of July bucket this is going to be a very last-minute holiday.

I might have over-organized my clear plastic bins to keep track of mini decor staples sorted by colors, holidays, and seasons. In my type-A quest to organize my 4th of July decor I ..

July is the month that signals we are closer to Christmas!

Can you believe it?

We are officially under six months to Christmas. But let’s focus on the 4th of July! And celebrate the greatness of our nation!
