Quick Tip: Nature-Inspired Decor and Home Accents

Nature-inspired decor doesn’t have to come just from the outdoors. Especially in cities or the suburbs where yards and gardens are small or non-existent, or if a member of your household has plant-related allergies, faux flowers, lighting and pillows are great substitutes for real flowers and greenery.

Fun Fourth of July Decor

Friday, June 30th, 2017

The first July weekend is upon us, and while Independence Day isn’t until Tuesday, we know you’ve been decorating patriotically all summer long (or all year long). Here are five fun Fourth of July decorating ideas you can accomplish this weekend, or do for fun on the Fourth with friends and family.

Gather on the porch and hang up a banner or two, decorate your planters with mini American flags and hang up your large version on a flagpole or next to the front door.
Go the extra mile with red, white and blue chairs for sitting on and enjoying the day.

Have fun with glassware and place settings on your picnic table by color coordinating them with the colors of Old Glory, and perhaps your red, white and blue dishes and desserts!

Head inside and hang a DIY banner over or on your dining table.
A bold runner can reinforce a a simple yet elegant Americana look.

And would it be a true country celebration without a few Mason jars?
Okay, yes, but adding them definitely won’t hurt, either! This fun DIY transforms plain Mason jars into patriotic lanterns for your patio, porch or indoor party.
