Around The House for the 4th

I like to set the formal dining table up for holidays with decorative elements.  

I enjoy flipping through this book and viewing the pictures of the many ways the flag is used.

I like to switch the pages that are open so that something new is viewable each day. 

Firecracker Uncle Sam is new.  He goes with Lady Liberty on the other side of the vase which came out the year before.  The big sparkler star ball is also from Pier 1 (last year).  I staged some patriotic deco in the two glass cylinder vases that I've used so many times. 

I used my patriotic scatter pieces in the bottom of the two vases.  I re-did these vases three times until I was satisfied!  Some of the patriotic pieces came from Kohl's.  I haven't even been there to see what they have this year!

These two figurines are by Bethany Lowe and are my absolute favorite!  This pictures shows the true color of the large vase. 

I love their faces and outfits.

The big vase came from Ethan Allen several years ago.  I don't know why I never tried it on this table before but I will leave it here after the holiday and see what else I can do with it.  Sorry about the quality of these pictures- I boosted the color in the picture but the background became a bit burnt out. 

I set up my deep windowsill in the kitchen with a few patriotic pieces too. 

Uncle Sam in his car is parading about town!  He came from Pier 1 In 2014. 

I stuffed some flowers from my stash in the white vase. 

This was early in the day before the rain rolled in.

After staring at it a bit more I rearranged the window elements.   

I spotted this premade burlap bow on the Pier 1 site (available online only) and decided I'd have to have it.  I have a clear commmand hook that stays on the door for my basket and decided to just reuse it, otherwise I would have hung it a tad bit higher.

And lastly a picture I bring out each year is hung on the stairway wall and highly visible from the kitchen and kitchen dining area.

Wishing you a Happy 4th! 


  1. You have done a spectacular job of decorating for the 4th! The figures on the table on either side of the vase are probably my favorites, but it's hard to say. Just think you've done a perfect job without overdoing.
