I feeI like I’ve said this a lot lately, but 4th of July is such a fun holiday to decorate for, and I just happen to love it for that reason! It’s so easy to throw up a few simple things in your home and call it a day– plus it’s just a good time of year! I mean, compared to Christmas decorating, 4th of July Decor is a breeze! For Christmas, we have a lot of “traditional” decor and even though I love that, don’t get me wrong– it can be daunting when it’s time to decorate! And this feels nothing like that!
My biggest hack is to pick a few of your favorite spots, that are easy to decorate, and run with it! You don’t need to have an American flag in every corner of your home to be festive!!
For me, my mantel, kitchen island, stove area, and the cabinet below my stairs are the BEST spots! They are just easy to add to, and I don’t have to think too much! And a tiered tray is the easiest, simplest, most beautiful way to cram some great decor in a small space!
This tiered tray is so beautiful, and my favorite thing is that it has enough room in between tiers to fit tons of fun pieces! Truthfully, there is no science to decorating a try like this though, I just put some of my favorite goodies on it, and I move ’em around until it looks like how I want!
I do like to not only put pieces I absolutely love, but things that are useful to me– like straws, silverware, plates, and even candy!! Not only can that add to the fun and gorgeous decor, and is generally fairly cheap, but it’s also so easy when we have company over!!
In between all of the sweet decor and candies, I throw in some of my favorite little DIY’s for that season! I made that braided 4th of July garland myself in just a couple minutes— cheap, simple, and ADORABLE! And garland is not only for hanging on things, let me tell you!
And the beauty of a tiered tray on a kitchen island is that it looks good from every angle! So whether you’re standing at my kitchen sink or sitting in my living room, you have the best view!
…And it’s all about the details! I made this bowl filler myself, also in a couple minutes from some cheap little ball pit balls and bandanas! You can never go wrong with a simple basket like this one, too!
Among all of the store-bought decor and candy, is some of my favorite thrifted pieces! This little #4 comes in handy ALWAYS, for Valentine’s day, too!! I love how it grabs attention, but doesn’t take it away! Such an amazing addition to a 4th of July vignette if you ask me!
Lastly, I threw in a couple American flags– and if you’re like me, and yours are in the attic most of the year, they may be bent up and not-so-great looking! Simple straighten those with your flat iron and call it a day, easy-peasy! And if I had to give you another tip, making a triangle with the flags is a great way to bring the eye all around this tray, and make it an experience!!
I hope you love this tiered tray as much as I do, and it gives you the inspo you need to get your 4th of July decorating done– just don’t overthink it!
