5 Great Patriotic Ideas for Holidays and Everyday


This weekend we celebrate the 4th of July, the USA's birthday!  What better time than to share these 5 great decorating ideas for your home, your porch, and even your backyard.


Summer is the best time for eating outdoors.  Why not set up this red, white, and blue tablescape to enjoy in your backyard?!  You can read the full post on it HERE.

How about a little Americana?  Painting the Stars and Strips on a piece of old fencing or pallet boards looks great!  Hang it on a wall in your home or outside on your porch.  This one sold at a charity auction last fall.

Not into DIY painting?  How about framing and hanging a real flag?  This Tennessee flag along with many others were on display at the Nashville Antiques and Garden Show earlier this year.  Loved this booth.  I'd love to have a room like this!

Now, this next one is the easiest of them all but it may be my favorite.  I placed an old red and white bird house (built by my husband's grandfather many years ago) on an old metal stool and added two small American flags.  This is currently by my front door.  You can see the whole front porch HERE.

And, last but not least, painting Old Glory on a piece of metal roofing.  A rusty piece, of course!  I hung this one above the door to our shed.  The full tutorial is HERE.

There are so many things you can do to add a patriotic feel to your decor or table.  Try fresh strawberries in a blue transferware bowl!  

How do you decorate for the 4th of July!?  I'd love to hear!!

Thanks for stopping by and God bless America!
