To me, summertime means an explosion of red, white, and blue in our homes, craft projects, and even kid’s activities. Every summer, for the month of June, many talented bloggers share the same thoughts and posts to my weekly link party. Today I am sharing a roundup of these posts for you to enjoy. Browse through each link for wonderful décor, crafts, and activities for the 4th of July.
It is not too late to decorate your home, finish a creative craft project, or plan some fun activities for the family gathering for our Nation’s most explosive summer holiday.
Let’s get started shall we?
Decorations, wreaths, and just some fun firecrackers to try out.
If you haven’t made a wreath for your door yet, make a quick trip to your local Dollar Tree and create one of these wreaths in just a short amount of time and for very little money.

Once again this year, I failed to plan far enough ahead to decorate a 4th of July themed tiered tray, but Penny over at Penny’s Passion made a beautiful Patriotic Tiered Tray to share.
Carol from Blue Sky At Home shared a roundup of her own with 10 Fun Decorations to Celebrate the 4th of July. Be sure to visit her post as well for some great ideas.
Let’s talk about tablescapes for a minute.
Some of the bloggers who share posts each week create some amazing tablescapes. Their 4th of July Patriotic tables are stunning!

I can’t fail to mention these next bloggers who take decorating their home in red, white, and blue to every little nook and cranny in their homes for the holiday and share it with us.
If you are a family who not only gathers together to enjoy the holiday but also enjoys adding a bit of creative fun to the day, then you will enjoy these next few posts for family and kid activities.

So many creative projects and posts get shared each week on the Home Matters Linky Party and I wish I could share every single one of the Patriotic ones here, but then the post would never end.
I do however, encourage you to go back to my home page and start at the beginning party links for June to enjoy even more posts from the wonderful bloggers of the weekly link party. Even better, go to the archive drop down list and enjoy the link parties from previous years too!
Hugs and enjoy the holiday,
Romans 10:17 “So faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes through the message about Christ.”
