Simple Ways to Decorate for the 4th of July

It’s almost time to bust out the picnic blankets, grills, and sparklers for another 4th of July celebration! Whether you’re considering hosting a casual backyard BBQ, an intimate indoor gathering, or something in between, no 4th of July celebration is complete without star-spangled decorations.

At Readyfestive, we offer 4th of July themed boxes and several patriotic add-ons that you can use to add some red, white, and blue to your indoor and outdoor areas. Here’s a look at our 4th of July decorations and some tips for styling the perfect space to celebrate America’s independence. 

What’s Your 4th of July Vibe?

Our two 4th of July themed boxes— Modern and Farmhouse— are brimming with super-cute goodies that are sure to take your gathering to the next level.

If you’re a fan of classic designs and clear, crisp colors, the Modern theme is for you. 

If, on the other hand, you love rustic, classic charm, the Farmhouse theme is your perfect match. 

Whichever option you choose, here are some ideas for decorating with the items in the themed boxes.

Deck Out Your Picnic Table

No 4th of July gathering is complete without a well-decorated picnic table. 

  • Lay your table runner across your table length-wise.  
  • Choose a centerpiece—the red, white, and blue roses bouquet in the Modern box or the flag bouquet in the Farmhouse box are great options.
  • Pepper the table with standing letters, signs, stars, candles, patriotic gnomes (how adorable are those!?), or any other decorations you wish. 
  • Hang a banner from the corners of the table, so it hangs down in front.  
  • Sprinkling some 4th of July confetti on the table is a nice finishing touch. 

Decorate Your Mantle

Most 4th of July celebrations take place outside, but many people enjoy ending the night indoors with a movie or an after-dinner beverage. To keep the patriotic spirit alive indoors, decorate your fireplace mantle with the standing letters, signs, and candles in your themed box. For a nice added touch, hang a festive cloth napkin from the mantle using one of the signs as a weight, as seen in the picture below.

Add Finishing Touches with Festive Add-Ons

So, you’ve decorated your space with the items in your themed box, but feel like you’re missing a finishing touch? That’s where our add-ons come in, which can be purchased with or without a subscription. Here are some additional styling tips inspired by the add-ons in our shop: 

Create a Warm Welcome

Set the tone for your party by greeting your guests with a festive wreath, doormat, and porch leaner. Our 18×18 Flag Bead Wreath, Land That I Love Doormat, and Wooden Porch Leaner will keep your porch ReadyFestive all summer long! You also can’t go wrong with our Patriotic Porch Package add-on, which includes buntings you can hang in your front yard to welcome guests to your 4th of July festivities.

Up the Comfort Factor

Add some spirit and comfort to your outdoor or indoor seating areas with 4th of July themed pillows and throw blankets, such as this cozy American flag blanket. These additions will make your guests feel at home and come in handy if it gets a bit chilly in the evening.  

Set a Festive Table

So, you’ve decorated your table using the items in the Modern or Farmhouse box, but what about plates, cups, and placemats? Stick to the theme with red, white, and blue everything! This Patriotic Table Package will make setting the table this 4th an absolute breeze. It comes with a table runner, plates, napkins (BBQ can get messy!), cups, cotton placemats, and party poppers.
