As June gloom fades away into sunny, summer days, we’re gearing up for the Fourth of July! Whether you’re planning a brunch or a backyard BBQ, all you need are a few touches to make it festive.

The Look

For a July 4th brunch, we love to use mixed patterns in blue & white as the base.  Add some white flowers, red & white ribbon and some small flags to bring in the Americana

For a backyard BBQ, you can play up the stars and stripes theme even more.

You can find more of our 4th of July favorites in our Amazon Shop
