Celebrate America!

Red, White & Blue Beach HutsHappy July!  In just a few days the great nation of the United States of America will celebrate it’s independence with fireworks, backyard BBQ and pool parties.  I love the 4th of July and couldn’t let the holiday pass without styling three adorable beach shacks in red, white & blue!

Americana Beach HutToday, I will feature the red Trompe Loeil Kiya (available @ Collabor88) American shack decked out with Finishing Touches Patriotic Swags 2 Stars (Stripes/Stars/Stripes), Antique Hanging StarsPatriotic Sling Chair (Stars & Stripes), Red Charcoal BBQ & Blue Metal Wheelbarrow Beer Cooler.  I’m ready for a 4th of July party and fireworks display.  Finishing Touches’s charcoal BBQ has multiple options for rezzable meats and grill-master poses for singles and couples.  The wheelbarrow beer cooler is dispensable.  24Karat Roux, creator and owner of Finishing Touches is offering the stars & stripes patriotic sling chairs as a subscriber gift until July 5, so hop over and grab them for the upcoming holiday.  July 1st also marks the opening day for the Perfect Ten event, running from 1st – 15th each month with deep discounts on exclusive items.  For the July round, Lunar Seasonal Designs created a fun animated Seagull eating french fries, the perfect deck mate!

Lunar Seasonal Design Animated SeagullInside the Americana beach hut, I designed a sweet treat buffet table using The Mustard Seed Lighthouse Table.  Aphrodite Shop’s Fruit Kebabs Platter, Patriotic Cupcakes, Fruit Desserts Dispenser, and July 4th Ice Cream (part of the 4th of July dessert pack) are on display.  Flanking the sweet treat buffet bar are two HJM Designs Gingham Rattan Chairs in Blue & Red, I picked up at Perfect Ten.  To complete the patriotic theme decor, I used Finishing Touches Twig Wreath White (Star Studded), Americana Collection Hanging Quilt (Stars & Stripes), Patriotic Wooden Stars, and Americana Collection Stacked Boxes Patriotic Flag.
