Red, White + Beautiful

Have you starting prepping for your July 4th outdoor festivities?

The host asked for a Down Home, Southern feel with all of the traditional eats + decor. However, for a fun pop if color, I chose to incorporate a fun shade of teal in place of some of the traditional royal blue.

I started by ordering enough bunting + pull down flags to make Betsy Ross squeal.

To dress the fabulous farm tables I’ve rented, I’ll be adding red houndstooth runners + topping them with vase trios in red, white + teal filled with gorgeous blooms.

We’ll add various ‘America’ themed pillows to the existing patio furniture to tie them in. 20140623-225656-82616539.jpgPotteryBarn
