It’s almost the 4th of July! And it’s the perfect time for gatherings and parties with friends and family. Is your home ready? If you’re hosting an Independence Day party and need to get your home in gear, no worries – Ashley HomeStore can help!

Sprucing up your home for the holiday can be as simple as adding some cool patriotic accessories like red, white, and blue pillows and string lights. Or, you can go all out and totally transform your space with new seating options and outdoor dining furniture. No matter how many guests you are having over for the 4th of July, you can achieve the ideal party atmosphere and gathering space with our tips below!

Make Sure There’s Enough Party-Style Seating

If you entertain often, it’s ideal to have lots of seating options for your guests. A sectional is a great option if you prefer one piece that can act as focal point in your living room. You can always add an accent chair or ottoman if you need more seating for guests. A great option is this ultra-modern Tindell 3-Piece Sectional with Chaise in stylish gray. Sleek, structured, and simply stunning, this designer sectional with padded armrests gives you a million-dollar look at a budget-friendly price.

Need something bigger? Consider this comfortable Savesto 6-Piece Sectional that includes 3 armless chairs, a left-arm facing corner chaise, a right-arm facing corner chaise, and wedge. This luxurious sectional’s reversible back and seat cushions are feather-filled and wrapped in a cottony soft fabric for cloud-like comfort.

Get your Outdoor Dining Area in Gear

If you’ve got a patio, it’ll serve as a nice area for guests to mingle, munch on canapés, and sip cocktails (if the weather permits). No matter what size outdoor space you have, we offer al fresco dining sets sets in numerous sizes, from 3 pieces to 7 pieces. Our outdoor dining sets are crafted to maximize every square inch of your patio with minimal maintenance. For instance, our Nelson 5-Piece Eucalyptus Rectangular Dining Set seats 6 people and includes 2 benches, 2 armchairs, and 1 rectangular table. Perfect for a stylish patio, this eucalyptus furniture is known for its longevity and craftsmanship at an affordable price. Its resistance to weather and UV radiation makes the set durable and enjoyable for years to come.

A smaller yet chic option for your patio or porch is the Cotton Road 3-Piece Dining Table Set that features all-weather, handwoven resin wicker. The comfy seat cushions and colorful support pillows are wrapped in low-maintenance Nuvella® fabric, made for easy-breezy outdoor living.

Add Fun Accessories in Patriotic Colors

Often, decorating your home with fun accessories is the best part about getting your house ready for a shindig! Throw pillows—especially in festive shades of red, white, or blue—make great additions to liven up your home. The Jevin Pillow boasts a boho design with delightful patterns and multiple colors that include brick red and cream. Deck out your indoor or outdoor space with this Spectrum I Hook Indoor/Outdoor nautical toss pillow in red, white, and blue.

Poufs are versatile pieces that can act as a convenient footrest, a functional table, or extra seating for parties and entertaining.  Our handmade Alessandra Pouf adds an upscale, shimmery touch to your living space—silver-toned silkscreen finish glams up the ivory faux fur cover. For a splash of patriotic blue, consider this cute knit Nils Pouf that’s loaded with alluring texture. Its fresh hue and shapely design are sure to round out your space in a casually cool way.

Festive lighting is also a nice option to liven up your Independence Day gathering. Drape lots of LED strings of light inside and outside your home for a star-spangled explosion of color. And don’t forget tiki torches to create an inviting ambiance for your patio!
