Decorating for the 4th of July – Red, White, Blue and Kitsch

I was starting to get itchy to decorate during this long stretch between Easter and Halloween.  It was breaking my heart to think of my 100+ trees sitting lonely in the attic.  Sure, there have been a few trees here and there for summer, Mother’s Day and Cinco de Mayo but I needed a big holiday fix.  I needed a garland on the mantle, mini trees, pinwheels and a tree topper made of presidential spoons.  I needed to go big or go home for my 4th of July decor.

One of the reasons I bought my current house (ya know besides the giant swimming pool and good schools) was that there was a Christmas tree nook.  I knew it was a sign that I was meant to keep that nook adorned with a seasonal tree year round.  I have kept good on my promise for over 2 years.

I think my living room with the navy couch lends it’s self to the patriotic look.  I mean come on, I have a bench with the US flag on it the room all year long.
