Red, White, and Blue desserts:

Food makes the best decorations, because you and your guests can have fun “putting them away.” Any red and blue snack works, like these flag kebabs, a berry parfait, or even a centerpiece made out of red, white and blue candy (below).

Paint six shims red and five shims white. Use one coat of chalk paint so the wood grain still shows through.

Red, White and Blue accessories:

Pillows and accessories are the quickest, easiest way to update a room. Add red and blue pillows or a throw blanket to a neutral setting, or use the Fourth as your excuse to buy that blue piece of furniture you’ve been eyeing for a while.
