Simply Beautiful Style: A Fourth of July Decorating Moment

We’re excited to share these photos that Julie Blanner sent to us. Julie, an event planner and designer who blogs at Coordinately Yours, tells us, “Fourth of July just might be my favorite holiday to decorate for. I love the patriotic colors that lend well to outdoor gatherings. I added a hint of nautical to this early evening celebration.”



“I used a small galvanized bucket to keep white wine chilled,” Julie shares. “I placed silverware rolled in blue striped bar towels in my galvanized beverage carrier. I prefer using these to traditional linens because they are so soft and don’t require ironing!”




“Of course a flag served as a backdrop. When the guest room is not in use, I pull the sideboard from the guest bedroom to use as a beverage bar for our patio parties,” Julie notes.
