A Little Bit' O Red, White & Blue

I actually have ZERO 4th of July decor.

I decided that I didn't need to buy anything.
All I need to do it pull together anything
red, white or blue
that's laying around the house, right?

Okay, I did break down and buy these little flags:
a dollar and some change for a pack of 4. I can handle that.

I found this old teddy bear sportin' the right colors and
The sailor hat belonged to my son when he was a baby.

I made this last year courtesy of craft time with Jen and Em.
I guess this would have to be the ONLY patriotic/americana/4th of July
piece of decor that I own.

I also found a baby hat that belonged to my daughter,
a red & white table cloth, and threw in
my Scrabble tiles for fun.

I found a little, red adirondack to put under my cloche!

So here it is: my first ever patriotic display!
I'll be vacationing in the Northwest over the 4th,
so I hope everyone has a safe and fun 4th of July holiday!

Looks good, isn't shopping the house fun! It's like an adventure!

I was just telling the kids we don't have any decorations for the 4th! (Other than our star banner we made the other day) Love the idea of just looking for red, white and blue stuff around the house. Your table looks great!

Your 4th of July display looks great! I really like the Pledge of Allegiance Project, and may have to try one myself. I have about zero decor to, but I will be posting a couple of pictures this coming week. Have a wonderful time away. Jackie

Thanks for sharing. Inspired me to look around the house for decor. But I could not find the flag we made at Moments last year. I will probably find it at Christmas :)

I love your decorations! Those scrabble tiles are so fun and what a cute little red chair!!
