Whether you are looking for decorative touches to add to  picnic style lunch, ideas for hosting a grand backyard BBQ, or patriotic nautical twist for a celebration at a beach or lake house, our featured bloggers shared amazing ideas. Earlier this morning, July 4th decor ideas was a trending topic on Pinterest.

Around my home, with July 4th weekend just eleven days away, we are hosting a unique celebration that combines July 4th and Summer Solstice celebrations. Summer Solstice is when we have 24 hours of daylight here in Alaska and it’s a big time of festivities for all. Of course, I will share all the details with you very soon.

    1. Hi Carol,
      You are very welcome! It turned out perfectly! You have such a lovely outdoor space at your charming cottage. It reminds me of my days spent in Texas with my Mimi and Pawpaw.

      Thank you for sharing with us. I look forward to seeing your name in the links.

      Hope your Independence Day was wonderful, my friend. <3

  1. Thank you so much for featuring my denim bunting. I had the Union Jack version of it up this weekend for the Queens official 90th birthday celebrations.

    1. Hi Claire,
      It was my pleasure to feature you! I loved so much about your photos. The wrought iron fencing was perfect for showcasing your bunting. I do love Union Jack patterns, but always feel a little silly if I tried to use it in my home. I admire all the neat ways people incorporate it into their decor with rugs, tufted ottomans, and pillows. One day, I hope to make it across the pond so I can bring home some neat treasures with that pattern. I just might make it over there now that a cousin is going to be stationed in England. How exciting!

      Sorry for the delay in responding to you. I had a house full of guests visiting from out of state and you know all the work that goes into preparing, arrival, entertaining, departure, and the clean up. Ha ha.

      I hope to see more of your projects at Thursday Favorite Things.


    1. You are welcome,Lisa. It’s really my pleasure hosting and visiting so many bloggers that ordinarily I would not ever see. Link parties are so great for mingling, getting acquainted with others in this amazing community and making new friends with like-minded people. I just love everyone so much.

      Patriotic decor is one of my favorites! Sadly, I just couldn’t manage it this year. We had so much going on with friends visiting with their children from out of state. Things were just a bit busy for the entire month of June.

      I hope you had a wonderful July 4th. <3

    1. You are welcome, Robin. But thank you for always stopping by, visiting, and sharing with all of us.

      Hope your summer is full of excitement and awesome projects! <3
