Decorating The Kitchen For July 4th

Patriotic Kitchen Decor via 7

This morning I watched Jen’s shopping haul while I ate breakfast. She bought some paper straws and displayed them in a glass milk bottle – so cute! End of story? I had to stop at TJ Maxx and Burke’s Outlet after work! 🙂 I picked up several fun things at both stores, but I truly was in search of some paper straws. I knew they’d look cute in the milk bottle my MIL gave me recently. I ended up putting together a fun patriotic display for my breakfast bar!

Isn’t it fun when a whole project comes from a small bit of inspiration? My front doors are still wearing their Memorial Day wreaths – click the picture below to see the post on how I made those! 

Here's a simple alternative to hanging a wreath on your front door! Via

  1. Cute flag! Your S&P shakers look great with this combo. I’ve never seen flag paper straws before. I love paper straws and noticed that our Wal-Mart party section had a great, affordable selection. I’m going to keep that in mind for the next party I host.


  2. I just put out my “two” patriotic decorations…one in my kitchen and one on the back door. As much as I love to decorate for the seasons, I am not really good at summertime. I love paper straws…I buy them at TJ Maxx and Hobby Lobby when they are on sale. My grands like them too. They just “feel” better on the lips than the plastic straws.
