Happy 4th!!! Of course my most recent random Etsy searches were “stars and stripes” and “red, white, and blue”. I am here today to share some of my favorite finds with you.
Let me add a little disclaimer first. Other than Christmas, I don’t tend to do too much holiday decorating. It all seems so disposable to me. We generally entertain for holidays on small, immediate-family scale, so we use the dishes we have on hand. If I am feeling extra festive, I will pull out some decor from my party stash that fits the theme of the current holiday.
When I did these patriotic searches, I ignored all the disposable 4th of July decorations and themed stuff. I was looking for more timeless pieces that would look great year round. After all, I do have a modern american guest room, which features the patriotic colors all year.
Here are my favorite, cool for the 4th, but even better for all year decor finds:
This Pendleton Pillow made from a wool camp blanket is amazing. I love the red stripe at the top and the thick wool has great cozy texture.
I adore stars. This Stars and Pin Stripes Barn Star is super fun. The colors and patterns are perfect with a bit of a distressed, vintage feel.
Serving trays are a great place to have fun with a more themed look. This navy stripes and red stars tray is blatantly patriotic, but not in a cheesy way. Looks great when it is styled.
I love a bit of pattern and color on a picture frame. I would use this bold striped frame to frame a simple black and white picture.
I found these cute painted wooden forks in an unrelated search, but when I saw them in my favorites next to all my patriotic finds, it seemed they fit right in. These would be so cute for a backyard party.
I think this roundup shows Americana style can go far beyond temporary holiday decorations. I think you can have subtle patriotic elements in you decor year round.
