Fourth of July Mantle 2013

In our family it doesn't feel like summer until the 4th of July, so now that I finally have our mantle decked out in red, white and blue, the summer can officially begin!
My cute little flag centerpiece I featured in my last post, took center stage. 

Although it would be darling on a table at a summer picnic, it also looks great up on the mantle. 

A couple of wooden stars I found at goodwill for $1 each, painted red white and blue:

Two Dollar Store buntings along the bottom of the mantle:

And a couple of IKEA lanterns in red and white:

Believe it or not, this little afghan a baby gift to me when I was born (since I am a bicentennial baby born in '76)! I draped on an antique children's chair to take up the empty space on the hearth:

Once again, it doesn't take a lot to bring out the patriotic spirit:
Happy Fourth of July!!
God Bless America!
