Waving the Flag (4th of July Decor)



I can't believe it has taken me this long to decorate for the 4th of July!  I think I had my decor up in early June last year.  I guess I've just been too busy to think about it until today.

I  don't have much to share, but I thought I'd show you my (newly painted) hutch all decked out for the holiday.



I've love the way a bunch of flags look "planted" in an urn.  Of course, I just had to include my favorite little bicycle too.


I bought the blue shutter at a garage sale on Saturday for $4.00.  It's actually a phone stand, but my head shouted  patriotic decor  from the minute I saw it.


This is actually a serving bowl that I bought a few years ago at Kohls.  It normally houses my pasta salad on the 4th, but this year it's housing my wicker stars from Pier 1.



I have to admit, I do love red, white & blue decor.  Will you be decorating for the 4th of July (or Canada Day) this year?

I just put some flags outside but haven't did anything inside yet. Your hutch is beautiful and the red, white and blue reminds me of my "primitive days"!

I love that Broyhill attic heirloom piece you painted white. I want to paint my daughter's bedroom furniture now. It's the oak stain attic set.
The white cabinet is perfect for a patriotic display!

There is something about red and blue together that really makes a statement. Your hutch looks awesome. Can't believe you found a blue shutter with a star already cut out. Lucky girl. :o)

Leslie said...

I love the painted hutch with your patriotic decor! I am just now putting my stuff up too.

Debbie said...

I really love this! I'm a huge fan of blue and red against white anyway, and the Americana look of yours against that hutch is just perfect.

Jann Olson said...

Love it all Gina! The hutch is so cute and I too love RED, WHITE, and BlUE! I am being a bit lazy this year and leaving my cherry decor up in the kitchen and family room. Just decorating the enty. I am much slower this year also. Seems like June just got here and it's almost July.
Hugs,
Jann

I still can't get over how great that hutch turned out and it looks fab all decked out for the 4th! I'm hoping I get my porch painted so I can hang my new patriotic buntings. I think I'll just go crazy it they have to sit in the basement and wait for next year. Great to see that you are all set for the big holiday next week!

Jamie said...

Katie said...

Lovely! And where did you get that little bicycle???

bj said...

O, this is all so adorable. I have a black hutch that I would LOVE be able to wiggle my nose and have it turn into YOUR pretty white one. I don't know how to do all that fancy painting and distressing..and I have some shutters that are just about to be turned into BLUE, just like yours...but mine has no star cut into it. And, I wonder what shade of blue you used....

Judy Bigg said...

Love your hutch with the patriotic decor. I saw the stars at Pier 1 and wish I had purchased a few.

kitty said...

Gina, I LOVE your hutch painted white. It looks perfect for the
4th with all your cute decor!!

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

I did a pitiful job decorating this year....our house is all messed up because we are working on projects! So why bother....although I am enjoying yours very much, Gina. Everything looks so pretty and festive! I like red white and blue decor, too!

Sherry said...

I don't think I will decorate as I usually do. I do have a few items around in red, white and blue, we'll see if I geth the chance to get them out. Your hutch display looks perfect.

anangloinquebec said...
