The way many people care about their team in the World Cup, I care about Etsy.

Imagine my delight, then, when I discovered that the wonderful sellers of Etsy could also supply me with everything I need to throw an adorable and patriotic Fourth of July party! I've gathered up 14 of my favorite decor and style items to help you throw one too! Enjoy!
