Setting the Stage for the 4th of July and All Summer Long!

A few words come to mind when we think of the 4th of July…barbecues, fireworks, red white and blue, family, friends just to name a few!

What better way to kick off the summer season than with the celebration of America’s independence? By now you’re probably getting ready to fire up the grill, but in case you’re one of those last minute procrastinators, we’ve put together some fabulous design ideas that will help you begin setting the stage for the 4th of July and all summer long! Check out our slideshow above and tips below to get inspired!

  1. Ample Seating: Having plenty of chairs, loungers, and chaises not only creates an inviting space but is a must if you’re expecting a crowd. Check out a few of our favorite designs below!
  2. Summer-Inspired Accent Pieces: Summer is such a colorful season so take advantage of that fact by adding bright and festive decorative accessories like our Ribbed Square Bottom Jar in red or Chevron Accent Pillow in navy and white for the 4th along with a variety of other colorful pieces that will last all summer long!
