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!
Pin It

  1. Your mantle is so adorable! I really like those wooden stars.
    The cute little chair with the red, white and blue afgan caught my eye first thing though - then I read that it was a baby gift when you where born in 1976. I nearly fell out of my chair! You were a bicentennial baby, I was a bicentennial high school graduate! Even though our HS colors were orange & white, we wore red, white & blue caps and gowns for graduation because of the bicentennial and our tassels had a little '76 on them.
