Patriotic Doormat

Not only will this patriotic doormat greet your guests as they walk in, but it'll help keep your floors clean, too — that's what we call a win-win! The mat, which is made with naturally durable materials, features a pretty red, white, and blue print of the United States. It's perfect for the Fourth of July but will work all summer long, into Labor Day. Keeping it under a covered entryway will help prevent fading.

Firework String Lights

Instead of using traditional string lights to brighten up your patio, think outside the box and opt for these firework lights. Unlike other options, these LED lights are battery-operated and come with a wireless remote so you can control the settings without having to step away from a conversation. Choose from eight pre-programmed modes including flash, slow fade, twinkle, and more, and then set the timer for up to six hours so you don't have to go back outside to turn everything off once the party is over. Plus, they're waterproof so you can leave them up all season.

Liberty Burlap Party Banner

If you don't have wall space for a full American flag, don't sweat it; just hang up this liberty party banner instead. It'll show off your patriotic spirit with the same stars and stripes but won't take up a ton of room on your patio. The banner measures six feet long, features nine mini flags, and is made with burlap and natural twine to ensure it'll last more than one season. Place it above your doorway to put your guests in the party mood as soon as they walk in, or order more than one to hang them up around the backyard.
