Getting Inspired - 4th of July Decorating

Hi Everyone,
We're home from a very nice vacation
and this week has been filled with unpacking, laundry,
and getting back into some kind of summer routine.
So of course that routine includes catching up on all of your blogs
 and thinking about something to post 
on mine but I was not feeling very inspired.
That changed pretty quickly when I took a look at the
 4th of July decorating ideas on the
 Better Homes & Garden website.
  Every picture was just so cute!
Here is the link if you want to take a look ~ 
  All of the photos seemed to use a lot of white with pops of blue and red.
So here is my version. 
I bought one bunch of silk geraniums, one bunch of little blue flowers,
 and a few little flags.  Everything else, I already had.

Did I do okay for a quick afternoon 
of decorating?
Are you feeling the bug to do a little patriotic decorating too?

I'm so happy you came for a visit!
I really enjoy and appreciate hearing from you!!
