Patriotic Inspiration for the 4th of July

Happy 4th of July Weekend to everyone celebrating in the US!  We are having beautiful, sunny weather here in NJ and are spending time with family and friends over these next few days.

In honor of the 4th of July, I thought I would gather up some patriotic inspiration from the past to share with you!

Farmhouse Style Flag and other 4th of July Inspiration
I took this photo at a family 4th of July party a couple years ago.  I love the relaxed farmhouse look with the way it's hanging casually on a barn. 

Patriotic Table Setting for the 4th of July
I shared my Patriotic Table Setting in the Kitchen last year to celebrate the 4th of July.

Patriotic Table Setting in the Dining Room
A few years ago, I set a simple Patriotic Table Setting in my dining room in honor of the 4th.

Simple Door Decor for the 4th of July
And this Simple Door Decor for the 4th was a quick and easy way to decorate my front entrance!

Strawberry Pound Cake Recipe
This Recipe from the Book - Gumbo Love would be a great dessert to serve at a 4th of July party.  Just throw in some blueberries and you have your red, white and blue!  (Or just serve it with blue and white napkins like I did!)

Huge flag on white house
And even though this photo was not from a "4th of July" post, I included it because I LOVED this huge flag on this gorgeous house from the Spring Lake Garden Tour last week!

I hope you are feeling inspired 
to decorate for the 4th!  
What are your plans for the holiday?

I would love for you follow along so you don't miss a post!
