Porches were meant for outdoor decorative flags and banners.
Mary and I are partial to flying Old Glory in support of our country and troops. Many enjoy flying flags
to support their favorite sports teams.
No matter the reason, flags and banners are a nice touch to porch decorating.
Use them decoratively to welcome the seasons.

A porch, a beautiful flower garden, and Old Glory - a wonderful combination.
Garden flags are another all time favorite. You can use them to add a bit of whimsy to your front
walkway or declare your passion along side your front steps.
Combine flags with other objects like wind chimes for a special effect. Add them to statuaries and
other decorative items on and around your porch.

Q: What do the football season and porches have in common?
A: Outdoor decorative flags and banners of your favorite teams. Colorful and dramatic, fly your team's flag to let others know who's the best!
Our neighborhood's porches are usually full of flags on game days, from local college teams on Saturdays and pro-teams on Sundays. Add your team colors to pillows and cushions, put a mascot on the steps, and you'll have a great weekend-decorated porch!
We used to live in Nebraska and Saturday was "red" day in support of the Nebraska Corn Huskers (originally known as the "Bug Eaters)! Not only was the stadium a "sea of red" so were the porches!

Garden flags are also a great way to decorate. They are small rectangular flags that usually hang on garden flag stands meant for that purpose. We usually have one next to our porch and change it with the seasons. We incorporate garden flags as part of our porch landscaping.
Try to find ones with the pattern on both sides so you can see it from any angle, especially on windy days. Find flags for the seasons, holidays, and those special occasions and you'll have a great decorating tool at your disposal any time of year.
Here's a great tip to keep those flags on the garden flag holder: Use a rubber washer at the end of the holder and the flag won't come off.
