We hope you’re enjoying your Independence Day! If you’ve got an event later today, and you’re still trying to figure out the perfect easy, but impressive, decoration, might I suggest the site that never fails? Country Living.

A few years ago, CL did this great how-to on vintage-inspired decorations. From the banner to the ribbons to the Victorian-inspired prints, they’ve got just the thing to give your tablescape and decoration the perfect pick-me-up.

Rosette Banner

Crepe Paper Award Ribbons

Lady Liberty Door Hanger – my favorite!

Firecracker Favors – a close second! These are adorable!

If you find some great postcards (or printable ones) – just use them as is! Perhaps put them in picture frames or use one for each person as a place card. (Don’t you love that someone wrote “Hurrah for Uncle Sam’s Birthday”?)

Happy 4th of July!
