If you plan on entertaining at home this Fourth of July, it’s time to get started on some patriotic decor for your outdoor spaces. Seasonal decor can be elegant, just remember to keep things simple. Here are a few ideas to help you celebrate Independence Day in style at your Atlanta or Gwinnett County home.

Create a cascading planter using red, white, and blue flowers, like we showed you in the DIY Patio Project. (photo via HubPages)

Hang bunting in red, white, and blue, or check out these patriotic burlap banners by Rachel Paolillo.

Of course, no home is complete without a flag for the Fourth! Red flowers add visual interest without taking attention away from Old Glory. (photo via BHG)

If you don’t want to go too literal with a red, white, and blue color scheme, incorporate stars (an oversized barn star is bold and classic) while sticking to a neutral or all-white color scheme.
