4th of July Patio decorations

4th of July Backyard Inspirations with Sears

I decided that my backyard needed a lift before our Fourth of July celebrations.  With the holiday falling on a Wednesday this year, we’re making our festivities intimate with a simple family barbeque.

4th of July Patio Table


Our patio is home to an outdoor living set with couch, table and chairs, but I wanted to add a small dining table where we can sit, each and watch the fireworks while enjoying the plants and flowers in full bloom.


I assessed the area to determine the criteria for our perfect patio set.  I wanted a small round table with chairs to fit in with the outdoor couch set we have now.

My “before” backyard patio


Before heading out to the store, I went online to Sears Style Hub and shopped for my new patio table and chairs.  With many options, including sizes, shapes and styles, I quickly found the perfect set for us.  Ordering online was simple, and most importantly- free for any patio set over $299.  And, online ordering can be done from home or from the store if your local Sears does not carry your patio set in the store.

I decided that a simple but elegant dark resin table and chairs matched perfectly.  The fact it was on sale was a nice bonus!  Once the table arrived, assembly was easy.  Then it was time to create my Fourth of July backyard “inspiration” with this year’s theme being intimate and simple.

A perfect fit! Time to start decorating for dinner.


To add to the Fourth of July celebration, Sears is having a sale on the Menlo 5-piece patio for half price with free shipping.  And, by using the Sears Shop Your Way Rewards program, you earn points towards discounts on future purchases.  That’s a sweet deal.

Time to start the grill!


In keeping in mind my “intimate and simple” themed barbeque, I made this super easy- but festive punch.  I used Crystal Light in Pomegranate flavor and added fresh blueberries.

Now it’s time for our distinguished guests to enjoy their Fourth of July barbeque.

    Everything looks great! Looks like you are all ready for the 4th and the pre-celebration seemed so fun and festive. Love the punch idea. I just might have to try that out! Your porch is amazing.
