Getting A Queen Anne’s Victorian Farm House Ready For The Fourth Of July

In our home we take patriotism very seriously.  My husband is a disabled Vietnam Veteran who has dedicated his whole life to serving his country, thus the Fourth of July is a big day for us.  Yesterday I began the process of getting our farm house ready for company where we will celebrate this great day.  Here are some of the very fun and patriotic decor elements we are incorporating now.  There are ideas for those of you planning to decorate in the days ahead!! Enjoy patriotism in the Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee.
