Easy Décor for the 4th

Easy Décor for the 4th

As someone that loves anything and everything black, I get really excited by all the red, white and blue for the 4th of July! This has always been a holiday I looked forward to. When I was growing up, I would go to the Evanston 4th of July Parade with my mom and dad, and one of our closest family friends to watch their father, (grandfather/great grandfather) The "General," walk the parade in his uniform. We would then go back to their house for a bbq and it was great family time.

Now that I've got a house, it's time to start looking at collecting my own décor. I was recently in Target looking for something completely different, but found they had some really cute items for the 4th. So, as Target runs usually (always?!) do, I came out with many things I hadn't planned on.
