So with summer in full gear, we have a group of amazing bloggers to share tips on patriotic porch decor ideas for some summer fun!
Welcome to Everyday Edits. My name is Laura and I live outside the Denver metro area in Colorado.
But first, here is our inspiration from BH&G.
Is that the cutest dog ever! He matches the red, white and blue theme!
I thought it was a stuffed animal when I first saw this photo!
PATRIOTIC FRONT PORCH PINTEREST CHALLENGE
This is why we call it a challenge because my front porch is the size of a bathroom stall at DIA (Denver International Airport).
There is no room to move and I am confined by 3 walls.
So like all of our challenges, we adapt, pivot, and try new ideas.
PATRIOTIC FRONT PORCH IDEAS
- RED, WHITE AND BLUE
I started with our wreath and worked my way around the porch. I love a wreath against our front door. The greenery pops and the polka dot monogram is a staple for all of the red and white holidays.
It made an appearance on this popular dining room centerpiece.
I had one can of red spray paint to add a little color to the porch. When I heard there was a shortage of spray paint (because of the aluminum cans) I made a few panic purchases of spray paint.
I had these spring green lanterns I found at Ikea a few years ago.
If I spray-painted them red I could use them for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Memorial Day, and 4th of July! I have my eye on these vintage-looking lanterns!
My plan was to add one to the front door wreath, but they were just a week bit too heavy.
I added one to our porch bench …
And ended up adding the second lantern with plans to add these popular twinkle lights
Our American flag is outside year-round. I just love seeing it blow in the wind behind the wrought iron and windows.
Years ago I bought this little bullfrog at a garage sale.
During Covid, I spray painted his crown a seasonal paint color.
So I added a pop of red to his crown!
I love our monthly Pinterest Challenges and I hope you do too!
Thank you for stopping by today!
