Decorating for July 4

Hi, friends. July 4 is almost here and we’ve had lots of rain in Ohio. I haven’t felt much like decorating outside, but I have this vintage flag I found last year and love. It’s pre-1960ā€™s (before Alaska and Hawaii were added to the union) so it only has 48 stars. It is woven linen and hand-stitched ā€“ I love its character, patina and history. I feel like it needs to be displayed for the holidays for sure. Last year I used my Windsor bench to dress up the front entryway (view more pictures).

This year, I thought my little wicker chair would add a nice texture to the flag.

And I found the cutest vintage American drum (it’s actually a drink cooler!) perfect for the holiday.

A little star and juggling bowling pins round out the display with a gorgeous umbrella plant placed in my galvanized olive bucket.

Next year, I may have to just hang that flag and go big with my display! Tune in then. šŸ™‚

I hope you enjoy your holiday weekend with family and friends – be safe.
