Patriotic Party Decor

Well, we are less than one week out from one of the biggest holiday weekends here in America… July 4th!  Families across the states are preparing for a day of grilling, outdoor fun, firework shows, etc.  And while I’m not the biggest fan of summer itself, I can’t help but love July 4th!  I think it has something to do with the nostalgic memories from my childhood… spending a day out in the sun, watching the city parade, a family gathering, grilled hot dogs & burgers, and last but not least, the firework show.  There is something absolutely magical to me about a firework show… the bright, flashing lights; the loud crackles and pops; it’s as if the whole world around you has stopped.

Anyways, I wanted to quickly stop in today to share with you a few of my favorite patriotic party decor items.  For those of you in charge of hosting this year’s Fourth of July family gathering, here are some really cute ideas for adding a little patriotic flare to your outdoor {or indoor} party!
