Kate's Patriotic Decorations

Really Make Her Front Porch Dazzle!

Kate's patriotic decorations serve beautifully for both Memorial Day decorations as well as the 4th of July. Kate is the highly regarded author of the blog Censational Girl.



We really like how she used various combinations of red, white and blue flowers to carry her theme on her front porch.

She also found inexpensive fabrics - red linen and blue and white ticking - to sew some pretty patriotic pillow covers. Wow! They turned out sooo nice.

Kate says this summer she is enjoying adding punches of red to her porch. I love the dark red that's in her outdoor rug and the charming star that hangs on her home. And notice the cute red watering can. Love it!

We agree, the red sure makes her porch "pop". We love her decorating style - so fresh and fun.

Red, White and Blue Flower Combinations

Kate found an array of red, white and blue flowers. Here's what she used on her porch:
  • Red: dianthus, dahlias, petunias, trailing calibrachoa, gerber daisies and kalanchoe
  • White: nemesia,dianthus, geraniums and dusty miller
  • Blue: hydrangea, lobelia, salvia

We really appreciate Kate sharing these fun pictures of her patriotic porch. We encourage you to visit her blog Censational Girl.

As Kate says: "Three cheers for the red, white, and blue!" We couldn't agree more.

Tips for Displaying Your Flag Properly

Often times in our exuberance to celebrate with the U.S. Flag, people tend to forget how to properly display Old Glory. Here are a few friendly reminders when using patriotic decorations, specifically, the American Flag.
  • When the U.S. Flag is displayed from a pole horizontally or at an angle from the porch, the stars should be located at the peak of the pole. The exception is when the the flag is at half-staff.


  • When the flag is displayed horizontally or vertically against a wall, the stars (the union) should be at the top and to the flag's own right (or the observer's left). If displayed in a window the flag should be displayed in the same manner. The flag should never be used as bunting or draped over objects (except a casket).


  • Do not allow the flag to touch the ground, shrubs, or other objects.


  • The flag must be lighted when flown at night.


  • When you flag is worn, torn, or otherwise should not be flown, it should be burned in a dignified manner. Contact your local scout troops or American Legion Hall for assistance. Do not throw the flag in the trash.
