I'll be honest, I really do love a good summer party. And when's a better occasion than the Fourth of July?! Hot dogs, popsicles, margaritas, and fireworks... the vibes are off the charts. But if you're throwing a li'l get-together, you may be struggling to find some decorations that aren't too OTT. 

Hear me out, 4th of July decor can actually be really cute if you know where to look! I've scoured the internet for the best red, white, and blue decor picks that are anything but tacky. So say goodbye to cheugy party store flags and hello to decor you'll wanna keep up all year long. 

Whether you're having a beach day or a backyard blowout, I've found plenty of semi-patriotic extras like string lights, candles, throw pillows, and more.
