Getting Ready for the 4th of July

I do love to the 4th of July! Flags are flying, the grass is green, the flowers are blooming and the sun is out, could it get any better? Just a few days away but having it on Wednesday this year seems to be throwing some people off. Harder to combine into a long weekend I guess. I was sitting out back having a cup of tea and planning the menu for the big day, ribs, chicken, salad and brownies, along with a few other side and appetizers. Nothing fancy but perfect summer food.


These chairs are one of my favorite spots to sit in the back yard.


This is our little shed that provides extra storage.







I'll have to take you on a tour inside of shed one day soon. It does provide storage but I had to make it cute inside too.

Your little shed is adorable--I could live there! It is cute enough anyway:)

I think Wednesday is throwing off the 4th. We aren't planning anything--and we usually do! We will just sit at home and watch our neighbors shoot off illegal fireworks and make sure our house doesn't catch on fire from them!

Love your shed, as apparently everyone else does! We are not doing much at all, as we had a family get-together this past week-end, and will have just my kids this coming week-end, so the fourth will be just a regular Wednesday. (Except for some fireworks in the neighborhood which will drive my doggies crazy).

you have photographed my dream!

Vickie @ Ranger 911 said...

I just want to wiggle my nose and transport your garden shed to my yard! Fabulous!

Beautiful pictures of your back yard. I will be checking back for a tour of that adorable shed. My 6 year old would love to make it into a playhouse! Happy 4th. Enjoy your guests.

Enjoy your holiday.

Monica @ Texas Fiesta Ware Fan said...

Laura I love your yard. I want a shed like yours!! The only plans we have is to take our new to us fur babies(Reagan and Ryleigh-Jack Russells) to the dog park early. I hope to spend the day at home playing with my dishes. Happy 4th!

Your little shed looks like a heavenly retreat or large cubby house. Very cute yet large enough to be useful. The flowers and chairs add a very welcoming touch.

Hi! That is an amazingly cute and cozy shed. Love the pink chairs and flags for the 4th. I would love to walk the beach today, what a great idea..will be with you in spirit! The tour of the shed sounds inviting. Nice post! Smiles, Maria from Seattle.

Hi Laura, I live in Germany, in Schleswig-Holstein, in a small town called Ratzeburg. It is located 60 minutes from Hamburg. Perhaps you've heard that name before? Ratzeburg is surrounded by three lakes. However, in terms of size can not be compared with Michigan.
I am pleased with your comment.

Have it nice!

That shed and your backyard sitting spot is so enviable! Love that you have a spot outside you can enjoy. The blooms on the shed porch and the screen door make it so chic. You make me wish, long and dream of finding a way to create such a storage space.

Nancy @ Nancy's Daily Dish said...

Laura, I saw this featured at (I think) Country French Cottage a few days ago. This is just precious! I would never ever have put the red white and blue with pink chairs but boy was I wrong to think that...this looks absolutely so adorable, festive and inviting. I LOVE it! What a great mix. Wish I could've spent my 4th right there!

Nancy

La Vie Quotidienne said...

This is SO FREAKING WONDERFUL!!! I love the pink with the red white and blue. I so wish I had some room to put a shed in my yard. I'm going to remeasure and see what I can come up with! Hope you had a great holiday! Would LOVE for you to link this up with our Hot Fun In the Summertime party. 5 of us are hosting every Friday in July.

This is like a fairytale! I'd love to sit in those pink chairs all day long sipping lemonade. You really know how to show off your 4th of July spirit. Love the bunch of flags in the watering can!

Pinning this - I think I really need a couple of pink chairs for my yard (think my hubs would mind)!?
