Fun 4th Fact: Legend has it that the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest started when four immigrants got into an argument over who was most patriotic. To prove themselves, they ate as many hot dogs as they could handle — because nothing says America like excess.
To that end, there’s no reason not to go all out with holiday decor on the 4th. You’re probably imaging my house mummified in giant swaths of red, white, and blue and bunting and a field of tiny flags on the lawn! Nope. Well, we do have a flag that pretty much only makes an appearance on the 4th. But our coastal home does lend itself to a healthy dose of Americana anytime of year. I prefer to pair red and blue with cream instead of white. It adds a nice touch of elegance to this long-standing color tradition.
Americana Burlap Stars – burlap adds a nice rustic cream.
Stars Throw Pillows – mix and match to your stars delight!
Solvinden Light Chain Covers – ok, these are my exception to the cream rule. They’re just so cute!
Galvanized Metal Stars – also adorably festive, and on sale!
Americana Star Quilt – I love these six-point stars, which keep this reversible quilt from seeming too holiday-y to use at other times of the year.
Oversized Reversible Throw – a touch of twinkle without overdosing on Americana.
Dietz LED Lantern – party into the night by the light of these vintage-styled lanterns.
Harbour Island Floor Pillows – equally terrific for the beach or backyard…or, family room for movie night.
