As American As........

As you all know, the life of a blogger is not all bright lights and glamour. Sometimes we have to get down to business and get those decorations made for the next big holiday. Since we're going away for The Fourth, those decorations had to get made last week. Except for a few final tweaks, the project was finished before midnight last night. Here are the results....... As American as baseball and apple pie.....where's the apple pie? That's the tweaking I was talking about.

I think I like the boxes better up here. They go with the banner decorated with children playing drums and dressing up in costumes..............
like this little cutie with his sailor suit and sword.

The colors are softer and more romantic than...................
..........the primaries for the breakfast room.
Even the precious Uncle Sam that I won from Sheila came to the party.



Those favor baskets are going to be filled with chocolate kisses for the nieces and nephews we're going to visit. Can't wait to see them,but until then............................... .................................the decor will be right here.

UPDATE: Tweaking done. The box is now complete with apple pie.

So cute! Your family is very lucky to have someone who decorates for the Fourth. You may have inspired me to make a few things for our celebration. May being the operative word here. I haven't decorated for any holiday other than Christmas since we had our fire 8 years ago. :( Time to move on, I reckon.

How lovely your decorations are. I don't know why but I can never get excited about decorating at any time but Christmas...but I'm looking forward to Christmas! (Thanks for such sweet words at my place!)

I love to decorate for the seasons. Most of my things are packed up getting ready for the move...so I'll just have to look forward to next year! I love all the things you showed!

I love all your decorations for the fourth of July!! I've never done that. My husband just got his US citizenship in June so maybe it would be a good year to start. Thanks for the inspiration!
Hugs, Rhondi
