Simple Summer Patriotic Décor

4th of July is just two short weeks away and that means it’s time for me to add a little summer patriotic décor to our home! The 4th of July is one of my most favorite holidays out of the entire year. It’s a time for us to gather with friends and family to celebrate the birth of our great nation. Celebrations include parades, concerts, cookouts, fireworks, and time off of work to relax. My favorite part of this holiday…gathering with family without the expectations of gifts. 4th of July gatherings are all about enjoying one another’s company with delicious Americana food, and a few loud fireworks to end the night. That’s it, there are no other expectations other than having a good time!

Simple Summer Patriotic Decor

Once I realized that 4th of July was right around the corner, I got the itch to add in some simple summer patriotic décor to our home and specifically this glass cabinet. As someone who loves an all neutral décor palette, I like to add just small, simple touches of red, white, and blue for summer. Patriotic décor does not need to be over the top to be impactful. A simple addition of a blue ribbon, or a red flower, or an old historical book are all you need to decorate your home for the 4th of July.

The simplest way to add summer patriotic décor to any home is with the flags. So simple and easy, right?!

I grouped two medium sized flags and placed those in the vintage demijohns on top of the cabinet. I grouped two to three smaller flags and placed those into the glass jars inside the cabinet. The red, white, and blue of the flags add just the right amount of color to this otherwise neutral corner.

Adding newer flags to vintage pieces helps to add character and coziness to our home. You can purchase the flags in our home here, and here. When purchasing any flag, make sure to buy flags that are American made!

I love the flags next to this vintage book, “Pennsylvania Superior Court Report”. It gives me all the historical, patriotic feels! Our bookshelves are always a mixture of new and vintage books. It is such a great way to incorporate new with old, which is one of my favorite ways to decorate!

Baskets add another layer of texture to shelves, cabinets, or any area of your home. The texture of the baskets inside the cabinet play off of the texture of the demijohns on the top of the cabinet.

I placed a few faux Queen Anne’s Lace stems inside the baskets. Queen Anne’s Lace is such a beautiful (and underrated in my opinion) flower and reminds me of summer! More faux summer flowers you could add into your patriotic décor could be; hydrangeas, geraniums, or poppies .

Ribbon is another way to add simple patriotic décor to your home. I tied a blue & cream stripped grosgrain ribbon to the handle of one of the demijohns. I simply tied the ribbon into a bow. Then kept the tails of the ribbon long to drape down onto the cabinet. To me, ribbon makes everything more beautiful!

If you have a wired ribbon that you love but don’t love the wire, check out this reel on Instagram on how to remove it.

Finally, I added blue & white quilts and blankets to the bottom shelf of the cabinet. I love that we can easily pull out a blanket to cozy up on the couch or grab a quilt for a picnic or a trip to the beach.
