Are you prepared for all the festivities that come along with the fabulous Fourth of July? Whether you’re planning on grilling up some tasty eats, hitting the beach, watching fireworks light up the night sky, or any other summertime activity, it’s clear that there are endless ways to get into the spirit of the fast-approaching holiday weekend. If you’re looking to enjoy a little bit of red, white, and blue holiday flair in your surroundings, read on for a few of our favorite Fourth of July décor tips that will pair perfectly with homes in New Smyrna Beach.
Display Some Fresh Florals
What better way to introduce some life and vibrant seasonal energy into your home than to opt for beautiful blooms in stunning shades of red, white, and blue? Opt for elegant arrangements with roses, white lilies, daisies, and blue hydrangea, or even try out spider mums to replicate the shape of brilliant fireworks! Arrangements like these would look spectacular outside your home – accented with festive flowerpots – or even as a finishing touch to your living room or dining table. Add a stars-and-stripes ribbon to complete the look.
Dress Up Your Entryway
Fresh flowers aren’t the only way to add a festive touch to your entryway and front porch area. The simplest solution may sometimes be the best – and the Fourth of July is the perfect time to fly a flag outside your home! But there’s plenty of other ways to get in the spirit, too. If you have any front-porch seating, you might consider swapping out your accents to match with holiday colors – so, add some accent pillows, or even try out decorating the area with a flag garland or festive wreath. You can even make your own wreath from unusual materials – like, for example, some fun, summery pinwheels!
Decorate for a Classy Cookout
If you’re planning on feeding the whole family with a fun outdoor barbecue, it’s easy to add some unique, festive, upscale charm with your tablescape. Try out some festively painted or decorated buckets to store essential cookout supplies – napkins, condiments, and utensils to keep everyone organized while eating summertime favorites off the grill. This might also be a great way to store beverages over ice or create a fun bouquet of red and blue lollipops for kids!
Set your outdoor table with a festive-colored tablecloth to repel any barbeque-related stains it might incur. Or, keep it simple and stylish by placing some bandanas under centerpieces or as placemats! Another great table centerpiece might be lanterns – which will come in handy to use when the sun sets. Plus, it’s a great place to also set up a s’mores ingredients serving tray!
