Celebrate Independence Day with a simple Fourth of July Mantle and free Sweet Land of Liberty Print.
I can hardly believe that it’s nearly July. Where does the time go? This summer has been particularly busy with family and kid responsibilities. I feel like this is the first week I’ve had a chance to sit back and breathe for a bit! I’ve been putting a few finishing details on my Fourth of July decor and while I am sure I will keep tweaking it, I thought I’d show you this year’s Fourth of July mantle and share a fun patriotic print.
The Fourth of July *might* be my favorite holiday. I know it doesn’t have the same meaning as Christmas, but honestly it doesn’t have the same pressures that come with “THE HOLIDAYS” either. Just laid back, relaxed good old family fun. No gifts. No extravagant gestures. Just hot dogs and fireworks. PLUS, it’s warm. #enoughsaid
I actually set about getting my red, white and blue decor up around Memorial Day and while I didn’t quite make my goal, we’ve been enjoying it during June.
Fourth of July Mantle + Sweet Land of Liberty Print
On the left side of my mantle is a scalloped wave print I’ve been hoping to incorporate into my display for a couple of years. When I came across the small wooden boats on display in the middle of my mantle from Target this year, I knew it was time! The print was created by my friend Betti Jo, from Paging Supermom, and you can grab it for FREE on her site.
Betti Jo’s cute print had a smaller coordinating navy print (you’ll love it), but I was looking for something a bit less nautical and a whole lot more RED! I quickly created this fun Sweet Land of Liberty print, which pairs nicely with the rest of the items on my mantle.
The red and white ceramic canister on the left side of the mantle is also from Target.
On the right side of my mantle I have a fun baseball weather print (we’ve got a lot of themes going on here) in red and white. It’s a download I’ve shared on my blog previously. You can grab the print here.
A navy and white ceramic pitcher and a tiny little bowl with a succulent round out the grouping.
I considered adding some swag or a banner to the mantle, but one of my favorite things about the mantle is its simplicity. I love having the room decorated, but free from clutter!
Do you decorate for the Fourth?
