3 Color Palettes Inspired by the 4th of July

There’s more than one way to make your Fourth of July party colorful. That’s why we’ve put together different variations of red, white and blue for you to consider for your party and home.

Independence Day parties usually don’t stray much from the patriotic colors of the flag.  One might think that adding in more colors would be a distraction from the Americana palette, but just the opposite.  Including little accents of yellow and light blue can add fun to your decor. And speaking of fun, what’s better than a day filled with hotdogs and a night lit up with fireworks and sparklers?
