Inspiring Patriotic Decor

Hello friends! Are you getting excited for summer and the upcoming patriotic holidays? Around Memorial Day I always start adding some patriotic flair to our home and garden for  summer. I just love the old-fashioned vibes the red, white and blue bring! Here are some of the ways I have decorated for patriotic holidays and summer, as well as a few favorites from blogs and Pinterest.


Last year in  An Early Summer Home Tour Of My Old Kentucky Home I created a simple summer berries tablescape with blue and white dishes and red ticking stripe napkins.  The tasty real blueberries are long gone, but the faux strawberries still look  fresh and yummy on this year’s table!

I love creating a Farmhouse Style Fourth of July Vignette  for the May Pinterest Challenge a few years ago.

My “Stars and Stripes” Forever  Patriotic Tablescape ended up in the 2019 Summer Issue of Country Sampler Magazine!





A vintage chest or dresser is a great place for seasonl vignettes and displays.  For the patriotic holidays, just shop your house for any red, white or blue items you may already have or anything relating to vintage Americana.




I cannot tell a lie...I am way too excited that I went back the next day to a thrift shop to snatch up this George Washington saucer, after tossing and turning all night the night before for not buying it when I first saw it earlier that day! I knew it would be great for patriotic vignettes! 🇺🇸I am loving all the beautiful patriotic ideas everyone has been sharing here on IG and on blogs! There is a fun patriotic link party going on over on my blog #linkinprofile with so many great posts to ch

In the past I have also created vintage patriotic vignettes on a shelf and faux fireplace mantel in the dining room using blue transferware and other little trinkets. notice the tiny cherries (a reference to George Washshington and the cherry tree tale!)

Several years ago I shared my patriotic porch for the Patriotic Porches Tour, and it was so much fun that I decided to host a Patriotic Party link up   to allow bloggers to share all their fabulous red, white and blue in one place.  For lots of great ideas, you can go back and visit the party.



Patriotic Decorating Ideas

In addition to my Pin Away Wednesdays: Patriotic Decor post I have been so inspired by all the beautiful ideas I have seen on Instagram and blogs too that I wanted to do a post to share a round up of some more of my favorite patriotic decorating inspiration.

If I go with white furniture, it would be easy to switch out pillows, throws, and curtains to suit the season.

Kim at Savvy Southern Style added beautiful red, white and blue accents and furnishings to her sun room.



Debra at Common Ground always has the most amazing vintage holiday vignettes! Her sun porch is a delight to see through the seasons, but I especially love her summer patriotic displays!




This is such a beautiful vintage patriotic table setting by Camelot Art Creations. Love that vintage soft blue scale!

I just love Patriotic porches! An all-American porch decked out with red, white and blue just seems so welcoming and beckons you to come and sit and sip a cold drink in the shade! 



Of course it’s fun to decorate for patriotic ideas around your garden and patios too. Here’s some great ideas for Summer Decorating with Flags, Flowers and Ferns.
