Patriotic mantle

It's time to celebrate!

Happy Independence Day all.

A little embarrassing, but this is my first;
my first year adorning my mantle for the 4th.

a little red
a little white
and
a little blue







I knew I needed the three primary colors:
red, white and blue
to reflect the holiday.


and
I found all in a set of books 
at the Rescue Mission.


Red is such a bold color and I just
 wanted it to pop not dominate;
and 
it really pops against
the grey and white pillows.



Give me fall and give me Christmas,
 and I will pour my heart out in adding
 a little flair to my home.
Now, the 4th has been added to the list.




I'm obsessed with the frosted vases.
  They are a great
 addition to the patriotic décor.




whereas
 the non traditional décor compliments
 the mantle display.



Thanks for stopping by.
Hope you enjoy the celebration. 
Be safe and have a Happy 4th.

  1. I like adding flags to any mantle decorations as you've done. Yours makes me wish I didn't have a TV over our mantle so I could decorate it again. thanks for the inspiration.
