I’m not huge on holiday specific decor, and I truthfully don’t typically deck out the farmhouse for all the holidays that come and go during the year. But when it comes to Christmas and the Fourth of July, I do love to spread a little holiday cheer throughout our home! And it may help that the two holidays are spaced apart quite a bit!! But every year come May, I start getting excited about summertime, warm weather, pool days and grilling out for dinner! I love summertime, and one thing that is iconic about summertime for me is the Fourth of July. I love adding little patriotic details and classic americana decor to the farmhouse! And just like I do for the Christmas decor, I start early so I can enjoy it a little longer… So today on the blog I thought I’d share our Farmhouse & Cottage Style Fourth of July decor with you!!
Vintage Yardlong Gallery Wall in the Entryway
This vintage yardlong gallery wall was completed just in time for summer! Though I’ll use these prints year round, they look especially festive for the Fourth when you add in a few flags!!

A Touch of Red, White, & Blue in the Kitchen
For the kitchen, I kept it simple and arranged a couple larger flags along with some pretty faux florals into an old glass growler. This jar is one of many that I found and dug up in the woods here at the farm. I actually blogged about that in this post. They’re a beast to clean, but I love displaying them like this in various spots throughout the farmhouse!
Vintage Patriotic Coffee Table Decor
I love displaying a tray on this little upholstered bench as a catch all for the tv remotes and our coffee table decor. This vintage Coca Cola tray adds the perfect pop of red for the Fourth! I added in some ivy, and a few milk glass vases, of course topped with a mini flags to finish the look!
Fourth of July Laundry Room Decor
I found all these antique Clorox bottles half burried around the farm, like many of the glass jars and bottles you’ll find in our home. They would have belonged to my grandmother and great grandmother, and they’re super sentimental to me for that reason!! By adding a few flags into the jars, the laundry room instantly feels Fourth of July ready!
Summer Bedding & Patriotic Playroom Decor
We recently put a metal twin bed in the playroom, and I added this red and white quilt just to have something on the bed temporarily. It’s usually something I would only pull out around Christmastime. But since we hadn’t yet invested in twin bedding, I made this full size quilt work by tucking the one side under the mattress. And it ended up being the perfect bedding to bring a little patriotic touch to the kid’s playroom this summer! The kids have really enjoyed the new layout, and my husband has enjoyed his new napping spot!
Fourth of July Decor in the Guest Bathroom
Here’s another simple flag arrangement I added to our guest bathroom. To be honest, I’ve been sticking a flag into every jar I can find! And believe me there are a lot of jars here at the farmhouse, haha!! I love the festive touch it adds to this space.
Outdoor Summer Tablescape on the Porch
This Fourth of July tablescape on the porch was such a fun look to put together, and I hated to take any of it down! We enjoyed the decor in this space for a little while, and then brought it all inside to add a little red, white, and blue all throughout the farmhouse. To see more photos of this outdoor tablescape, click this link view to an earlier blog post.
I don’t know about you, but I like to enjoy our 4th of July Decor from May through July, and I think it really compliments our farmhouse / cottage style decor! And it just feels like summer! I hope this post brightened your day, and brought you a little inspiration in preparation for the 4th of July! How are you and your family celebrating this year? Do you decorate your home for the 4th? Thanks for hanging out with me today, and as always, thanks for following along…
