Fireworks, Parades, and Cookouts. It Must be July
Whether you’re celebrating the 4th of July or Canada Day, this is the week that truly feels like summer is in full swing. But between all the pool parties and cocktails, we are hopefully reminded of what these holidays represent.
This week, we hope that you remember the sacrifices that have been made that have given you opportunities to live a prosperous life. We hope that you believe that your country has bright days to come and your fellow citizens also crave a better world that they are willing to work toward. These holidays are not about a day off from work to enjoy the warm weather, the festive cocktails you found on Pinterest, or the fireworks that give your dog nightmares. These holidays unite us with our fellow country-people because the best is yet to come and our brightest days are not yet behind us.
Now it’s Time to Plan so Don’t Let This Be You
As you’re putting the last flag toothpick into the diced watermelon, it dawns on you…. There isn’t anything patriotic about your home décor! All the flags and symbols and dollar store decorations adorning your backyard stop there. Your guests have nothing fabulously American or Canadian to view on the way to your restroom! What kind of host would you be without a playful touch of patriotism on the inside of your house too? Fear not for it is not too late to create a one-of-a-kind holiday-tastic patriotic piece of art at a Yaymaker event!
Unfurl the Flag!
Our flag inspired paintings are sure to wow your guests as these out-of-the-box interpretations are both fun and classy enough to be displayed year-round.
And for the free spirits, a more symbolic patriotic nod ought to do the trick.
Can’t decide which country to celebrate? We have a solution for that! Both Canada and the US like Fireworks so customize this piece of celebratory spark with your favorite colors.
Oh, you’re not hosting? Well, there’s no better way to say “thanks for keeping the mess at your house instead of mine” than with a patriotic terrarium.
I Need More to Paint!
Looking to paint more than a canvas to celebrate the 4th? Check out these patriotic nails.
You can organize your plastic picnic utensils in these patriotically painted Mason jars. And these painted wine bottles make for a great DIY backyard party game to pass the time until the fireworks start.
From all of us at Yaymaker, we wish you a warm, safe, and happy 4th of July or Canada Day!
