Welcome to my front porch…all decked out for the upcoming patriotic summer holidays! Seems the older I get, and wiser, the more I appreciate where I live, and I am grateful to those men and women who made this country what it is. That said, being patriotic isn’t just for Memorial Day or the 4th of July, but celebrating these holidays is a tried and true American tradition. We fly our flag proudly, and this year I added some other fun touches to the porch.
Patriotic Porch Decor Ideas
The porch rockers have been around for a while and I love them as much as the day I got them. I dug out the blue gingham pillows I used a few years ago and added them to the rockers. For the table I kept the white impatiens from my black and white porch, and added a small Willow Tree figurine of a woman holding a folded American flag. It’s called “Hero.”
The door basket is the one I made in the spring. I replaced the existing ribbon with a red bow, and then added two American stick flags. In less than five minutes, the door basket was transformed into a patriotic display that shows up great from the street. You could go one step further by adding some red, faux flowers. Red gerbera daisies or geraniums would be perfect!
Good quality American flags can be found at big box stores, discount stores, and even the grocery store. I got the large flag in the first picture a few years ago at Lowe’s. There was a huge selection and different price ranges. I wanted one that was finished on both sides, and I wanted the stars to be stitched. I looked online and depending on the size you want, they run between $25.00 and $35.00. A good investment, in my opinion. I listed sources for all the flags at the end of the post.
American Flag Tip:
To hang our flag from the porch overhang, I used two large cup hooks. Keep in mind that when displaying an American flag vertically, the blue field should be on the left, from the view of the observer.
I hope this inspires you to add a bit of Yankee Doodle Dandy to your porch. After Memorial Day, I can remove the blue gingham pillows and take the flags out of the planters and wreath. Easy and super quick transition back to basics. This patriotic porch decor is also a look that can last throughout the entire summer. It’s never out of fashion to display your American pride, and put your best patriotic foot forward.
