Patriotic Outfit Ideas – Part 2

Since 4th of July is tomorrow, I’m sure many of you have already gotten the party decor part down (or at least we hope so!) All that’s left is to prepare our patriotic outfit! Though it may sound easy to throw on a red, white, and blue outfit and call it a day, we love planning our outfits ahead of time for special occasions.

Last week, we posted a few patriotic outfit ideas in our blog (click here for part 1), where we shared with everyone some of our favorite red, white, and blue inspired outfit ideas to try. Guess what? We’re back with even more 4th of July outfit ideas that we’ve found! Keep scrolling for outfits!

Via Style Motivation

Striped shirts are staples in  many of our closets. Choose one in a red or blue striped, and pair with a neutral white skirt.


Via Obaz

With an American flag bandana (available at HomeSeasons.com), tie it around your forehead for a patriotic splash of color.


Via The Golden Diamonds

Try a maxi or midi skirt for a day out at the park, with accents of red in the accessories.


Via Social Bliss

Peplum is a popular trend that we think is here to stay. Love this red, white, and blue striped peplum shirt with red pants for brunch with friends and family.


Via Tumblr

This outfit idea is fun and patriotic, with accents of leopard to compliment the red, white, and blue patriotic colors.

We have 1 more day to plan our outfits for 4th of July, so we hope this post gave everyone some ideas to try. We love dressing up for holidays! Do you? Let us know in the comments below!

Fun Ways to Serve Fruit on 4th of July

This weekend has definitely been one of the hottest we’ve had all year. With 4th of July coming up this week, we have to prepare ourselves for the scorching heat! Though sodas and juices are always party favorites for thirst quenchers, they are filled with sugars and artificial flavoring.

This is why we love fruit for the summer. Not only does it refresh with natural flavors and sugars, it’s also good for you too! In today’s blog, we’re going to share with everyone a few fun ideas to serve fruit for 4th of July! With displays like this, no one will miss the soda!

Red, White, and Blue Patriotic Home Styles

Patriotic decor isn’t limited to just 4th of July parties. For those of you who enjoy the red, white, and blue color scheme year round, today’s post is for you!

Red, white, and blue are classic, all-American colors of the United States, and we personally love using these 3 colors as accents around the home, not just during 4th of July. Keep reading for some of our favorite home style ideas featuring our beloved rwb color scheme that you can use year round (and doesn’t scream “I’m hosting a 4th of July party today”)!

Patriotic Refreshments Bar/Area Ideas

There’s only 1 week left until 4th of July! Time is passing by so fast! On 4th of July (or in the summer), the hotspot of any party is definitely the refreshments area. In the sweltering weather, nothing beats the heat more than a wide variety of drinks, preferably in a self-serve station so we can keep re-hydrating ourselves!

There are so many fun ways to organize all the refreshments for any 4th of July party. Some even serve red, white, and blue themed drinks! In today’s post, we’re going to share with everyone some patriotic refreshments bar/area ideas to try next week on 4th of July. Here are some of our favorites!

Via Our Best Bites

Create a self serve station for icy drinks like Our Best Bites.


Via Inspired By Charm

We love this drink cart idea via Inspired By Charm, especially with the red, white, and blue drinks.


Via Simple Pretty


Via Indulgy

Fill a tub with ice and packaged drinks for an easy refreshment area like these ideas via Simple Pretty and Indulgy.


Via Big Bears Wife

This drink is literally red, white, and blue! We love this drink idea via Big Bears Wife (not to mention the container is fun, as well).

Via 2 Sisters 2 Cities

Mason jars make great serving cups! 2 Sisters 2 Cities decorated the glasses with a fun patriotic ribbon.

Refreshment bars are such a great idea to try at your next summer party. Everything you and your guests need to rehydrate is all in one place! We especially love the patriotic touches that were put into the ideas we shared today. They’re great for 4th of July, or any other patriotic celebration year round!
