Today Erika and I are hosting another edition of our "Let's Talk" series and I'm so pumped because it's all about red, white and blue!
Y'all. I LOVE me some red, white and blue. I love how summery and patriotic and festive it is. I spruced up our entryway with a few little flags stuck in the flower pots and the red, white and blue wreath I made two years ago.
You can find the tutorial for the wreath HERE.
The flags were $0.99 at Home Depot and they're my favorite way to easily add some red, white and blue.
I added a few out back as well...
I told myself I wasn't going to put out any patriotic decorations this year since I'm still trying to figure out where everything is going on a regular basis, but when I went to get the wreath out of the attic I couldn't resist :) The handprint canvas we made a few years ago and it's one of my favorite craft memories with Mason :) It's currently on the shelf in the dining room and I smile every time I walk past.
See!!! He looks like grumpy cat :)
If you want to make one yourself, you can find the instructions HERE.
The big flag I made broke in the move and I haven't had a chance to fix it yet. It looked super cute on our old mantle, though :) You can read about how I made it HERE.
When I visited Magnolia Market earlier in the year I picked up this red chalkboard and I KNEW it would be perfect all summer long. (It's sold out on the Magnolia site, but you can shop it HERE)
A group of teeny flags in a Mason jar and this candle finished it off.
I was talking with Shay yesterday and I told her that I think the console table in our family room is going to be the new kitchen window. (If you're brand new around here I had a TOTAL love affair with my kitchen window in our old house). I foresee a lot of decorating fun in this spot!
PS - I'll share family room and kitchen pics soon! I want to get hardware for our cabinets and hang a couple more things before the official "reveal" :) Consider the next pics a sneak peek!
The metal firecrackers are from Hobby Lobby and then there's more little flags. Easy!
These candles smell amazing regardless what kind of jar they're in... but I'm partial to the mercury glass.
This is an awful picture of them, but on that back counter you can see these bowls in red, white and blue. We use these bowls for pretty much everything and love having a festive stack of them on hand.
And one more canvas art from last year :) We made it with straws! SO EASY!!!
Aside from decor, I love dressing everyone in red white and blue all summer. These boys shirts would be great for the fourth... and I tend to think that red, white and blue is appropriate year round :)
And y'all should know I love a good patriotic girls ensemble :) Click on the pictures below for more info and to shop!
For me - red, white and blue has to by easy and breezy because when we're out and celebrating it's typically 7000 degrees outside.
Here are a couple of my favorites....
So fun, right??? And if you need one more little bit of red, white and blue - be sure to check out this cute little dessert I made for a patriotic playdate a couple of years ago.
I feel like I've overloaded y'all with red, white and blue :) Now I can't wait to read through your patriotic favorites! Link up below to share.
Happy Monday, Friends!
