4th of July Picnic themed mantle

Hello my friends, are your ready for a fun filled
fourth of July weekend?
 
We usually host an outdoor breakfast, but because we are all still recuperating from the wedding we've decided that we will wait and do it on Pioneer Day, July 24th.
 
The day that we celebrate the arrival of the pioneers into
 the Salt Lake valley.
 
 
Still, I had to decorate my home for one of my favorite holidays.
 
Last Monday I went downstairs to take a picture of my thermos's and picnic tins for Instagram.
 

That's when the idea hit me to use some of them for my upstairs mantle.  Of course I had a theme in mind,
"4th of July Picnic".
 


I tucked one of my Americana quilts under the handles of a thrift find picnic basket and placed it on the hearth.
 
Every picnic needs a blanket.
 

 
 
Hand stamped flags, picked up at a yard sale for $2 each were placed inside some of the thermoses.

 
 I added a vintage coke crate, because everyone knows that; "things go better with coke"!  :)
 
 
Three of my small quilts took center stage on the mantle.
 
Then I added the banner I made a few years ago.

  A few more thermoses were placed on a rustic childs t.v. tray and placed on the other side of the hearth.  The cooler with the ball is my newest estate sale find.  Love it!


 
 There you have it, my "4th of July Picnic" mantle.

 
 

 Wishing my American friends a wonderful holiday weekend!
 
hugs,
Jann

You have quite the collection of fabulous plaid coolers and thermoses! Your mantel is so festive. I have a few of my own from thrifting that I am keeping for myself and a few in my shop. I might have to take those out and create a vignette for the summer.
