If you caught my recent home tour, you know that I went with an overall classic Americana theme for our home this summer. However, this is the first year I’ve added in patriotic decor and it was way easier than I imagined. If you want to inject a little patriotic pride into your own home, here are my three tips for incorporating simple 4th of July decor.
Ok, so this might be a no brainer, but its something I’ve never used in our home before this year. Its simplest, cheapest and most impactful way to add patriotic decor to your home!
For under $10 total, I got several flags in varying sizes and spread them around our house.
Adding them to decor that you already have out in your house is so easy and looks great.
I stuck mine in several small pitchers, in with larger flower arrangements and also in faux potted plants.
Include some flag decor.
Duh, Jordan. Another no brainer, right? Just hear me out for a second. Instead of going all out with patriotic themed everything, pick a few key pieces and leave everything else simple. I had been envisioning a primitive wooden flag for the focal point behind our couch for some time, and I’m so glad I put the work in to DIY it.
That’s the main piece of themed 4th of July decor in our house.
The other item is this small mason jar I picked up at Michael’s on clearance. Everything else stayed quite neutral and similar to the color palette I use in my home year round. So decide what themed items you want to include, whether it be a pillow or a blanket or a large piece of artwork, and then let them shine by keeping the rest of your home understated. Not only is this a time saver, but a huge money saver, too.
Reuse decor from other seasons.
If you go back and look at my Christmas home tour, you will see the exact same red pillows that I have on our couch right now.
If you have solid color red decor from an off season or different holiday, pull it out! The red and white ticking stripe bunting is another great example.
I snagged them during Christmas from Target’s dollar spot. Those solid red napkins were front and center on our Christmas table. Shop your house. Reuse things. Get creative with it!
If you take out the small flags and few items of flag decor, our house pretty much looks the same. That’s by design, y’all. Ain’t nobody got time for a complete overhaul every season. My main tip and the one thing I want you to take away from this post is to keep things simple. Decorating seasonally should be fun, not stressful and (hopefully) following these three simple tips will help you get your house 4th of July ready in no time!
