For me, I always have a couple of key pieces in mind, like flags for the 4th and some red objects. (The handier the items the better)
My beloved red handled masher purchased very recently and the nut grinder were already in the kitchen.
Red white and blue stars from a craft shop will work in a small crock.
Then sometimes the unexpected works too. Like this reproduction Cracker Jack door stop I had borrowed from my Mom once for a dog vignette I had planned. I never used it!
A vintage liberty jug I spotted in a cupboard, a red Folgers can from a shelf in my den, and a red white and blue dime register bank usually displayed on a spice rack with old tins in the laundry room, round out the vignette on a red ticking runner.
And that's how my patriotic kitchen vignette came together! Happy 4th of July Everybody!
