Call me crazy, but one of my all-time favorite things about any holiday is decorating. Whether it’s putting up spooky ghosts and spiders for Halloween, jingle bells and tinsel for Christmas, or stars and stripes patriotic decorations for the 4th of July, I find magic in themed decor.
It may have something to do with the ever-changing aspect… I do get pretty bored with the same old same.
With July 4th and Memorial Day around the corner, I found myself browsing for patriotic decorations and patriotic home decor. The hunt started while I was still in Iowa and led me to discover At Home and their Waterloo, IA store. They had their Grand Opening on April 22 and 23, just a few days after I left Iowa for North Carolina.
I am setting a day aside so we can go visit the Raleigh store because from what I hear, it’s awesome! Heads up North Carolinians: At Home has brick and mortar stores in Concord, Durham, Raleigh, Charlotte, and Greensboro! Don’t worry, they have lots of stores and a handy store finder tool to help you find one near you!
Patriotic Decorations from At Home
You can get a feel for what At Home has to offer by visiting their website. For stuff like this though you really want to see everything because the pieces are amazing and I’m not sure the photos do them justice.
To help us get a feel for the company’s work we were sent a few patriotic decorations just in time for the summer holidays. As soon as I opened the boxes I was excited. I could feel the patriotic spirit pouring in. Or maybe it was the upcoming change of interior scenery… either way, it felt amazing!

These are patriotic decorations that are affordable and well-made!
The Canvas American Flag Chest patriotic decoration is my favorite piece. It can be used year-round to hold trinkets or anything else. It is pretty durable to be so light-weight which makes me like it even more. It opens and closes without creaking or overlapping. It fits in with any other patriotic decor or stands out on its own.
The Decorative Wooden “Fireworks” are neat and when you have more than one become an adorable focal point. The decorations have been made for indoor use but they are so, so, so cute outside by a bench or on a porch. I do bring them in at night so weather and nocturnal critters don’t mess them up. The metallic ‘fuses’ on top add some whimsy to an already fun set of decor.
I couldn’t help but check out the entire selection over at the At Home website. It’s amazing and the prices are practical. It truly is the patriotic decorations superstore! Oh, and they have sales!
