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.
- Styling a Patriotic Front Porch offers tips on how to do just that – with decor you already have or new Americana accents from Sturbridge Yankee Workshop.
- 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.
- On a larger scale, you can add a patriotic look to an entire room (or rooms) in a number of ways. This post suggests style tips for decorating in the red, white and blue all year long.
- 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.
