RED, WHITE, and BLUE TIME!!!

HAPPY (almost) Fourth of July, Everyone!

 

As I trudge outside armed with my red, white, and blue decorations (oof! ha!), I thought it might be fun to share how we decorate and celebrate.  Who knows?  It might give someone some new ideas they've never thought of?

 

As for me, I decorate my country mailbox with a colorful wreath and a decent sized American flag.

Next, I will decorate my black, wrought iron fence with flags and garland.  The front door will have a long, narrow flag and a banner with the flag and fireworks display on it. And my business will of course have quite a large American flag that has been in my family and handed down.  Plus garland, plus a big red wooden star cut out of a wooden plank that will lean up against the entryway, plus a pretty red, white and blue star to hang.   My business sign will have a big metal firecracker next to it.

My sunporch will be decked out and my dining room too.   Hmmm...have I missed anything?   Hahaha!   I have this thing for Patriotism!    😘🤗

Yaaaa @RosemaryF433825 and thank you!

 

I'd be so grateful to see pics (as I have no outdoor space now). If you're comfortable, please share; if not, that's okay.

 

Either way, tysvm for your heartfelt patriotism!

@WebWiseWoman   Alright!  Ha!   I make no promises, as I have never place a photo on this site before.  But I'm going to give it my best shot, per your request, and we'll see what happens!   I have a photo of the decorated mailbox, one of the wrought-iron fencing, and one of the front of my business.  Enjoy!!!

@LindaB671   I'm glad you enjoyed them.  You kind of had to tilt your head to see the mailbox one.  Ha!!

I'm thinking I'll decorate a bowl with strawberries, vanilla bean ice cream and blueberries and stick a spoon in it, and leave it at that. 😅
