4th of July decorations are quite fun, and if you decorate your front porch with a patriotic theme, we bet you'll be the envy of your neighborhood!
It's easy to do, it doesn't have to cost a lot, the kids can help, and you'll enjoy the time spent together. If nothing else, a beautiful flag on your porch shows your love for your country.
Dave and I are thrilled to show you some of the patriotic pictures from the Tucker Hill community in McKinney TX. This is truly a porch lovers' neighborhood.
Dawn decorates her porch for the 4th! She lives in a cabin in a small town and is so good about reminding us of the importance of comfort and the goodness of old-fashioned hospitality.
Some bold red and white checks, a bucket of ice cold red pop and comfy pillows will put you in the patriotic spirit indeed. Thanks to Dawn of Creative Cain Cabin for sharing her 4th of July decorations with us.
If you enjoy Dawn's patriotic decorations, I know you will also enjoy her summer porch decorated with sweet peas
Crepe paper is inexpensive and easy to use on your porch. Interlace it with your balusters to create a festive look. Hang strips of red, white, and blue to symbolize the flag and let them blow in the breeze. Be careful about getting crepe paper wet, however, as the colors will run.
We are very proud of our Americana style porch for the 4th of July. We designed our patriotic burlap banners to hang from our porch columns.
So many 4th of July touches on this porch. See the patriotic flag wall art? I like the small table that's decorated with candles and those red, white and blue lanterns beneath it. How about that wonderful bench?
Using vibrant red, white and blue flowers, you can either landscape around your porch or create a splashing container garden for the 4th of July. You could even create a flag shaped garden with rows of red, white and blue flowers.
A beautiful red, white and blue hanging basket is another neat idea.
Red flower suggestions include zinnias, petunias, salvias, begonias and geraniums.
White flower suggestions are white petunias, white vinca or white impatiens.
Blue flower suggestions include purplish-blue petunias, blue lobelias, blue salvias and bluebells.
Let your kids help plant the flowers, too. It's fun and the flowers last all summer long.
Ever think of painting your plastic pots red, white and blue? We even tell you how in our quick video.
A porch is the perfect place to hang your flag and show off your 4th of July decorations. Flag holders are easy to install and nothing says patriotism better than ole Glory flying in the breeze. Just be sure the flag holder is sufficiently high enough to keep the flag from touching the ground or shrubs beneath it.
