Happy 4th of July


This porch on Martha’s Vineyard is the perfect place to enjoy the Fourth of July, don’t you think? For us its a classic barbecue at the shore and fireworks at night. This year I added a featured drink for a fun twist, a patriotic margarita, recipe here. Red, white and blue decor is a given, transform an old picnic table with a fresh coat of paint, Martha Stewart style and my personal favorite memory for the Fourth, sparklers. Love this tote idea from LL Bean.

I also want to share some of my favorite patriotic posts to help you celebrate and to thank those who fight for our Independence everyday.


Red, White & Blue Style- Today I am sharing some red, white and blue inspiration with you. Red is vibrant and energetic, blue can be soothing or bold depending on the shade and white is peaceful and crisp. Combined the result is crisp, clean and fabulous. Read more
