This is a photo of my hutch decorated for the Fourth of July. Don't spread red, white and blue all over the house. Concentrate your decorating efforts in one main area. Find all the red, white and blue plates, glasses, trays, baskets, pitchers and decorations in your house. Place all of your items together in one area. This makes much more of an impact than a few things placed here and there. And I find red, white and blue so cheerful.
