Pin Away Wednesdays: Patriotic Decor

Welcome back to my Pin Away Wednesdays series! Since Memorial Day is this weekend and summer is upon us, I thought it would be a great time to share highlights from my Patriotic Decor Pinterest board. I absolutely love using patriotic touches around our home inside and out from Memorial Day through Labor Day. It is so easy to create patriotic style inexpensively too!  I am always pinning ideas for patriotic decor, crafts, tablescapes and more. Here are some highlights from the board. Pin away!

To me, nothing kicks off summer like displaying “Old Glory” on the porch! Whether the red, white and blue is flying over Memorial Day weekend in rememberance of those who served, or waving proudly to honor our freedoms while celebrating the Fourth of July, or signifying the end of summer in patriotic style for Labor Day, our grand old flag can add charm to any porch or yard all summer long!

Displaying festive patriotic buntings during the summer is one of my favorite ways to show patriotic pride.

Using American Flag pillows or simply using red, white or blue textiles is another easy way to decorate in patriotic style for summer.

Mini-flags are super inexpensive and look great no matter where they are displayed. They look so cute in jars, ironstone pitchers, flower arrangements, galvanized watering cans, buckets and bins.

Planting red, white and blue flowers in red, white, and blue buckets is such a cute idea!

Blue and red transferware looks beautiful on display for summer and so summery in garden vignettes.

 

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

Red or blue ticking stripe or even red and white or blue and white checked fabrics are great choices for textiles too.

There are some rules and etiquette for displaying the flag properly, but you can use flag patterned material or buntings on wreaths, windows, craft projects, etc. to get the same look. I love the idea of displaying a flag or (faux flag) in a tobacco basket. I have a huge tobacco basket on my patio that is empty, so I just might do this for summer!

Happy Memorial Day! I had this whole heartfelt thing written out about my feelings about this day, about my dad and grandfather who served and fought in WWII, the Korean and Vietnam war, and remembering all those who have come before us, but my phone shut down on me just as I was ready to post🙈 So maybe instead I’ll just say take time out from all your fun today and remember. Let’s never forget the fallen, and our loved ones who are not with us. That’s all. #gonebutneverforgotten . . . This ...
