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.

Metal Planter Wreath

One of our favorite pieces in the Summer 2019 is this wreath. The metal planters will hold faux or real plants (liner recommended), which means you can really create your own look with whatever plants you love.

The farmhouse charm is strong with this chalkboard. Hang it up in the kitchen, an entryway or a home office space and keep the room stylish and yourself organized.
