So excited about this upcoming Independence Day! I'm not one to go "all out" decorating for holidays other than Christmas but I did do a couple of festive things. I got out my Crate and Barrell striped placemats and a red vase which I filled with blue hydrangeas and white stocks (two of my favorites).
Then the other day, while watching a few episodes of Royal Pains (why do I watch that show? It's so cheesy.) I whipped together this little banner out of IKEA fabric. I like it.
My parents and my brother and sister-in-law are staying with us for the holiday. We're heading to Coronado Island for the patriotic parade and then we'll head to our usual spot to watch the fireworks. I love the 4th of July in San Diego. It's practically perfect in every way. Happy Birthday America!
