Fortunately, we in the United States celebrate our most patriotic holiday and the glories of summer on the very same day: the Fourth of July. Rain or shine, indoors or out, a picnic table dressed in red, white and blue offers a spirited reminder of what we celebrate on The Fourth of July. Colored glassware is propecia daily a tabletop trend, and cobalt blue wine or water glasses fit perfectly with this theme when mixed with various blue and white china to set off a gorgeous table cloth or place mat!
Teens revel in independence. Surrounding them in stars and stripes shows that you do, too, while also helping to put the real spirit of independence in historic perspective. At the same time, the bold stripes and bright stars of America’s most recognized symbol will enliven their waking hours. Guests, too, will appreciate a room dressed up in Old Glory decor. It is easy to create: design a flag chair by mixing star and stripe fabrics, then add a novelty flag paper on the wall and finish it off with pillows and comforters in different coordinating patterns of red, white and blue and voila…. you have designed a room-size tribute to American tradition.
Don’t forget the center piece, using red flowers, available in abundance this time of year, make the ideal centerpiece, shown at their best in a vintage Americana earthenware pitcher.
Follow the hot dogs and corn on the cob –or your more elevated dinner fare –with Martha Stewart’s mouthwatering, color-coordinated fruits of an American summer: blueberries, red raspberries, and maybe a dollop or two of frothy white whipped cream to complete the picture.
HAPPY 4TH OF JULY EVERYONE!
