Thursday’s Theme: Patriotic Summer Decor Prep

Thursday, May 16th, 2019

Today we’ve linked up five of our blog posts that feature patriotic decor – for holidays and everyday. We hope you’re able to find some inspiration for Memorial Day, the Fourth of July, your summer parties, and for when you want to add a little American spirit to your home throughout the year.

Patriotic Front Step

  • Create a decorative and patriotic centerpiece or tablescape with red, white and blue table settings, whether you add subtle accents (like a flower arrangement or candles) or go all out with placemats, glassware, dishes and American flags.
  • Finally, for Memorial Day and the Fourth of July, we recommend using DIY or printable banners, a mini tree decorated with patriotic ornaments, as well as more bold flower arrangements to really make a special occasion statement.
