A good old-fashioned family Fourth of July is one of my favorite things. Patriotic porch decor creates the perfect setting to sip some iced tea and relax with family.
It’s time again for another fun Pinterest Challenge, hosted by Cindy from County Road 407! This month we are creating patriotic porch decor ideas, just in time for the Fourth of July!
If you’re stopping by from Decore to Adore, welcome! I always love seeing the beautiful designs Laura creates.
If you haven’t heard about the Pinterest Challenge before, let me explain how it works: Several different bloggers take the same photo and create their own version.
I love seeing all the different interpretations of the same photo!
You can see some of my past Pinterest Challenge posts below. Just click the picture if you want to see the full post.
Our inspiration photo this month comes from Better Homes & Gardens and is all kinds of wonderful…
This is the kind of porch that just beckons you to come sit for a while. Plus, the dog is pretty darn cute.
Here are the elements I also used for my patriotic porch decor:
- a porch swing
- patriotic pillows
- flag bunting
- floral arrangement
- a collection of multiple mini flags
My Patriotic Porch Decor
One of my favorite things about the Pinterest Challenge is using things I already own to pull together a look similar to the inspiration photo. To create this patriotic porch decor, I didn’t buy a thing!
I used an old crock to hold some faux hydrangeas and tucked in an antique mini flag to add some patriotic color.
I didn’t have any watermelon on hand like in the inspiration photo, so I added my favorite little red cardinals for another pop of red.
I gathered up all the mini flags I had in my stash and arranged them in a white tin water pitcher to sit on the antique side table next to my porch swing.
I didn’t have any traditional bunting, but I did have this fabric flag garland that used to be my mom’s, so I draped it across the back of the swing for some more red, white, and blue power.
And as a finishing touch, I added the flag pillow to my other neutral porch swing pillows.
Now, this porch is all ready for some relaxation and ice tea sipping when the family comes over for the July 4th barbecue.
Next, I hope you’ll visit Laura’s lovely patriotic porch at Everyday Edits. You won’t be disappointed.
Let’s stay in touch!
