Outdoor Decorating Ideas for the Fourth of July!

Well, folks, today marks the first day of my third trimester, and also the first day of the last week of June! You know what that means?! Time for all things 4th of July! (Which, of course, includes some decorating!) 

I’ve sorted through all of my patriotic decor, and most of it is up around the house now. I’ve always loved red, white and blue – maybe because July 4th is my mom’s birthday, and my family always celebrates! So when Amelia from LuxeDecor contacted me about a post on decorating for the 4th of July, I was excited for some fresh ideas. You’ll love these!

Summertime is all about family, fun and fireworks. The Fourth of July is the perfect excuse to host a big BBQ or all-night backyard bash. And while the explosive evening light show is often the focus of the day, there are many more inspired ideas for setting the stage for a festive occasion.

Here a few outdoor decorating tips just in time for that sparkly mid-summer soiree full of glowing night skies.

So when Holly from Chairish asked me to design an entire room around just one (albeit fabulous) accent chair, I wasn’t quite sure that I could. An entire room, starting with one chair? Normally I have a bit more to go on…but I figured I would give it a shot!

I chose THIS chair:

THIS is a Lee Industries Leather Wing Chair. Is it not the most gorgeous thing you’ve ever seen?! I just love it!
