What’s more American than barbecues, picnics and corn on the cob?
A little red white and blue thrown in makes summer entertaining that much more festive.
I don’t save these colors for just Memorial Day or the 4th of July either and I’m all about using what you have inside and bringing it outdoors (remember seeing a lot of this in my summer mudroom).
Want to add more color and texture – how about beach towels? Bonus – the kids can dry off after a water balloon fight.
It’s easy to add color when you have classic white adirondack chairs.
Need a place to serve your margaritas – a tray from my daughter’s room does double duty.
Need something to keep your napkins from flying away? Shells scream summer – bonus, hold it up to your ear to hear the roar of the ocean.
Need a statement centerpiece? Try something unexpected like a candleholder filled with dried flowers (or real once they bloom)!
Need a comfy place to rest – pull a pillow or two right off your couch.
Need a festive tablecloth? Try wrapping paper – best part, no clean up required …
and don’t forget the sparklers.
Hooray for the red, white and blue …
all summer long.
