Fourth of July Decorating Ideas...

It is definitely feeling like summer here, and for me 
that means summer decorating!  If you have 
been reading my blog for awhile, you know 
I love some red, white, and blue in our decor for summer!

This post is sponsored by Oriental Trading Company.

My favorite place to dress up for summer is our sunporch! 
 This year I wanted the feeling of a patriotic summer picnic!  
With the help of my friends at Oriental Trading Company, 
I found some fun accent pieces in their Patriotic Supplies  section! 

I love the look of this Outdoor Patriotic Pillow Set...
so pretty with my red and white gingham pillow!

This set of two Red Metal Lanterns is perfect on the dining table 
and will be so great for many occasions (thinking Christmas)!
I added a couple of battery operated candles.

Another piece I just love is this Patriotic Utensil Caddy...
so great for holding utensils, napkins, etc.

A set of their Western Bandanas makes fun napkins!  
They have many styles and colors available...

This set of Patriotic Hanging Fans is so great looking...
a perfectly festive backdrop for the table!

And look at these cute Shining Sea Pinwheel Picks! They come in a pack of 12, for a very low price.  Of course they are perfect for cupcakes and food, 
but I love tucking them into unexpected places for a little whimsy...

I love the happy summer feeling you get with red, white, and blue decorating...

Feel free to pin!

Thank you, Oriental Trading Company for providing the goodies used 
to transform my space!  I love them (and all opinions are my own)!

I'll be back soon with more summer decorating fun!

Until next time...
