Bang, Whoosh, Crackle, Fizz...Fourth of July is right around the corner! This is a great time to get together with family and friends and celebrate our independence! Make sure your outdoor space is Fourth of July ready with these 7 easy tips!
Add Some Life
Incorporate flowers and plants into your outdoor décor for an authentic summer feel. If you’re not too keen on slaving under the hot summer sun with a bag of potting mix all weekend, transform your patio using faux plants instead. They’re affordable, cute and, best of all, hassle free!
Prep the Patio
Dust off all the dirt and grime that has built up on and around your patio set. Depending on what material your furniture is made out of, you’ll need different supplies to get your patio set looking like new again.

Add Patriotic Flair
Once your patio area is squeaky clean, add patriotic flair by simply swapping out the old cushions and pillows with red, white and blue ones.
Pick Up a Few Seats
Extend the Party
If it’s within your budget, consider adding a fire pit to your outdoor space. This is a great place for your party to wind down around after the fireworks have ended. Bonus points if you bring marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate bars to share!
Cool It Down
Provide an area for your guests to escape the hot summer Fourth of July sun. Umbrellas can create a cool, relaxing space for your guests to congregate and rest from the summer sun.
