These are my Fourth of July favorites! All of these can be ordered online and shipped to you in time for a perfect patriotic party! Have fun shopping!
Traditional and timeless, I am so in love with blue and white porcelain! It has been around since the 14th century, but has become popular again in the past few years. I love this piece from Ballard- it would make a perfect vase for your outdoor party centerpiece, or can hold your new palm leaves on a console table. Ballard carries multiple sizes and patterns, I’d recommend you buy them all!
I think I speak for all of us when I say: Target is the best place on the planet. Why, oh why, do we walk in needing to make a simple return (from the last time we purchased everything on the seasonal aisle) and walk out with 42 things we didn’t know we needed?! It’s something in the air there, I swear. Regardless, I will still go and buy every single outdoor pillow that they will sell me season after season! And with their price point, why not?! *The watermelon pillow is out of stock online but is in stock in several local stores, so I give you permission to go on a pillow hunt!
I have always loved paper table runners for so many reasons: 1. They are the easiest way to make a table feel instantly festive. 2. You can throw them away when the party is over. 3. You can usually get about 4 uses out of one roll (it’s 25’ long!). 4. You can also use them as gift wrap!
This red stripe option from Swoozies is particularly awesome because it could be used for Valentines day, the 4th of July, Christmas, or even a circus themed birthday party!
Yes, you read that right. Ikea!! I have searched high and low for reasonably priced (because I want a LOT of them) realistic looking faux palms and came across this great find at Ikea! Buy 5-6 and fill up your new Blue + White Chinoiserie, or use a tall, clear, glass vase that tapers in at the top for a summer-year-round feel.
How precious are these little guys?! Cacti are the succulent of choice this summer in swimwear and decor and I think this set would be adorable adorning your 4th of July table! At the price, they’d make a great hostess gift, too!
Nothing can update a space quicker than a new rug. I love this traditional yet preppy outdoor rug for a summer patio! I also love it in Lime and Black!
Does ANYTHING say summer BBQ more than red and white gingham plates?! These plates are made of melamine, which makes them reusable and dishwasher safe – so you can have picnics all summer long!
Happy 4th of July!
