4th of July Tablescape..using what you already have to dress up your holiday table!

4TH of JULY backyard tablescape!

 As usual I love to get our back patio ready for the weekend and Holiday weekends are even better!! Outdoor entertaining is probably one of my favorite things to do! However constantly buying new table decor can cost a pretty penny. For my 4th of July tablescape I decided to use what I had first before going out and purchasing new items.  


 To begin I brought out my backyard staple item (the galvanized tray) .  I had my daughter make a festive flag table runner to use as the main focal point.  Previously on Target runs I had picked up the star straws and the little white "Stars & Stripes" sign. (Both a dollar!) 


 The red and white and blue pom poms the girls had in their dramatic play bin so I grabbed those and placed them in my Target Olive bucket for some height.  I had no flag napkins and was considering running up to Dollar Tree for some but as I looked through my "napkin collection" (we all have one right?) I found some bright red Coca Cola ones! Perfect! Nothing says summer in America like Coca Cola! Going along with that theme I also grabbed my Coca Cola glasses. 


The red, white and blue sailboat was already outside as patio decor. I decided to use my HomeGoods gold and white placemats in place of the usual bamboo placemats I use outside.


The red wine glasses are actually acrylic glasses we keep outside hanging up on the Tiki Bar.  I grabbed two and added them to the tray decor.  I decided since its easier to have throw away utensils outside I needed to dress up some mason jars to display them in.  All I did was simply wrap some twine and added to construction paper stars.


The white plates and red bowls came right out of my cupboard!



 Isn't the table runner adorable?! Plus my daughter is soo proud she made it! 



After all that I realized I had everything I needed! This whole outdoor tablescape cost me zero dollars! More money to spend on food and cocktails for the weekend! I hope you all have a great Holiday weekend!

Neutrals by BEHR Paint

I've been working on a project for the past two weeks and what always seems to be the most challenging part is choosing paint colors.  I have been wanting to find a nice neutral that isn't too "Gray" and isn't too "Beige" but not too white either. I personally like the look of white walls in pictures but in reality I'm not a huge fan.  Also, I like to see a contrast between painted walls and white trim.  Each time I look over on Pinterest for inspiration I find lots of suggestions for other paint brands..but I'm a BEHR girl :)  We spend so much time at Home Depot it just makes more sense for us.  That being said I decided to share with all of you my suggestions for finding the perfect "light Greige" by BEHR Paints!  


To start off with here are three options that are lighter/cooler but will still show a nice contrast next to white.

1. Drizzle


2. Sterling

3. Halation

These three options are also a "light greige" but a tad smidge more …

Treetopia's Merry CHIC-Mas Blog Hop

I am so excited to share that Sunny Chic Home is a part of the 2017 Treetopia Christmas Blog Hop!
This years theme couldn't be more perfect... Treetopia's Merry CHIC-Mas!
 Treetopia wants to help you add some sparkle to your holidays by celebrating a glitz and glam Christmas with the Treetopia bloggers!
I am kicking off the season with a very Merry CHIC-Mas themed master bedroom! Make sure to check out the four other fabulous bloggers this week!

You all know by now I love me some Christmas spirit in the bedroom and in our new home the master is light and bright so I wanted to continue that in the holiday decor.
  I chose to use the GORGeous Treetopia 7' prelit Tinkerbell Silver Christmas Tree. The silvery tinsel tips add such a magical touch and the width of 47" make the tree such a great piece and perfect CHIC-mas addition to any room.
