Decorating the Patio for the 4th of July


* I Love the 4th of July *
 Every year we always get together with family and celebrate with a barbecue, egg hunt, and fireworks. . . . Yes, I said egg hunt, My family is a little odd, but we have lots of fun.


In anticipation of all the fun festivities, I decided to decorate our back patio in Red, White & Blue.


I covered the cushion of my wicker loveseat in a blue canvas fabric.  I then layered it with white and red pillows, all from Ikea. The blue stripped rugs that I have layered on the ground are from Ikea as well.


I shared how I made the flag candle jar in my last post, HERE.


The red door works well with the theme.
 However, I plan to paint it sometime this summer, along with our front door, which is also red.


 And lastly, I just cut up some watermelon with a star cookie cutter. My boys loved this idea, 
they are pretty easy to please.



 Hope you are all enjoying your weekend.
Thanks for stopping by,

Emily*

  1. I just love the jar with the flag and rope as a candle holder. Just a precious front porch. The red door looks great too!

  2. Love the pictures you posted with the gray sofa and they are lovely! I think gray would be a good choice too, especially if you "live" in that room. I'm sure whatever you decide will look beautiful.
