Front Porch Appeal-Celebrate the 4th of July on Your Porch
With Our Ideas Issue!

Issue #67 June 2015

June means summer fun, pool time, and of course, preparing to celebrate the 4th of July with sparklers, fireworks, picnics and a mosquito or two. The 4th is just a few weeks away and now is the perfect time to start decorating for this special holiday.

It is a fun time to make red, white, and blue decorations for your porch and the kids or grand kids can help. Perhaps you are planning a family get-together or just relaxing on your porch to watch the day's festivities unfold. No matter, decorating your porch can be easy and relatively inexpensive too.
