Just a few more days and July's already here! I'm so excited because the 4th of July is one of my favorite holidays. Fireworks, BBQs, swimming, USA – there's no better combo!
I love our house the most on two different occasions: Christmas and the 4th of July. Just something about American flags and summer days is sooo magical. Over here, we’re already decked out in full celebration mode with all the red, white, and blue! I got most of our 4th of July decorations at a small boutique a while back, but I found super similar decor from The Home Depot so you can recreate this 4th of July look! OH, and did I mention for way less?

A classic, traditional American Flag is a huge focal point when it comes to 4th of July decorations! If you don’t have one, The Home Depot sells both 4 ft. x 6 ft. AND 5 ft. x 8 ft. flags to find the perfect fit for your home.
It’s ALWAYS nice to have an extra American Flag on hand to put up for Independence Day, Labor Day, Memorial Day, etc. I’m telling you, it WILL come in handy!
4th of July decorations – the details!
Every 4th of July, I put up these bunting flags on our second story’s balconies, and I absolutely love them. If you have a balcony or ledge you’re wanting to put some bunting on, I found these ones from The Home Depot that are almost identical to what I got. AND they’re only $32 which is a lot more affordable than the ones I originally found!
PSA: If you’re putting up bunting, MEASURE your surface before you buy! When we originally put our bunting flags up, we found that 2 flags was too short for our ledge but 3 was too long… so we decided to get 3 and overlap them a little! Aka choose MORE than less if the flags don’t measure exactly the length of your ledge and overlap.
And a lil assembling tip: ZIP TIES. Using zip ties to secure these flags to the railings makes things so much easier and provides a super clean look!
ALL year long I use my blender to make smoothies, protein shakes – you know, allll the fun drinks. Well, this summer I'm OBSESSED with making my frozen lemonade! It’s been a go-to and it’s soo easy to make, especially using my Blendtec blender.
We’ve been forever fans of Blendtec and our blender we’ve had since we got married JUST bit the dust a couple of months ago. I was THRILLED to get this brand new one that's 30% off during The Home Depot’s 4th of July savings!
Shop this blender and use this recipe to make the PERFECT frozen lemonade for those hot, summer days!
- 1 cup of lemonade (I use Simply Light lemonade)
- 1 scoop of protein powder
- 4-5 ice cubes
Blend, pour into some fancy glasses (like these cute fountain shoppe ones from The Home Depot), sip, and enjoy!
Grill ‘n chill
4th of July = lots of yummy BBQs with friends and family. Which means we’re gonna need all the utensils and tools to grill up some yummy grub.
This Henckel’s knife set is SUCH a steal! It comes with all your basic knives, steak knives, kitchen shears, ALL the goods + a block to keep all your knives intact on your counter. Knives can be pretty pricey, but this set is 41% off its original price of $170 and priced at $100!
If you need a basic set of knives or replace old ones, THIS is your sign to do it!
Cast Iron Skillet
Now a cast iron skillet is a GREAT basic to always keep in your kitchen. This Lodge one is under $20 and PERFECT to take camping, leave at a cabin, or just throw on the grill at home to cook for all your summer BBQs! Such a tried-and-true tool that you can do so much with – def a huge cooking perk!
