~easy and simple patriotic decorating ideas~

For our 4th of July party this year,
I purchased some red, white, and blue ribbon,

and a few white carnations.
Every thing else was "use what you have" decorating! :-)

I mixed and matched my sets of red and blue napkins

with red and blue tablecloths. 

Old milk bottles with flowers and flags were the centerpieces. 

A mason jar full of red, white, and blue
glow bracelets decorated the little kids table.

And, I fixed up a table outside for the older kids.

A little metal tub I had
held the plates and bowls
for dessert and ice cream.

And, I used mason jars to hold the

spoons, forks, and knives.

A simple bit of ribbon
turned my fruit basket into
a patriotic napkin holder.

And don't forget that things you use
can become decorations, too!

Like red, white, and blue, cookbooks,

and aprons!

I hope this gives you some ideas for easy and simple
Independence Day decorating!
