My front porch is the size of a bathroom stall at Denver International Airport. And some days my porch looks like a bathroom stall. My fall and Christmas garland resembles those last eight squares trailing off the toilet paper roll.
But not my friend Pam. Her porch is always decked out for the season or holiday and looks like the front of an Arhaus store. And then there are porches that look like the owners gave up and decided since it’s June they might as well leave the Halloween wreath on the front door until October. I fall somewhere in the middle so I love to up my porch game. Here are a few patriotic porch ideas that work for just about any holiday you just need to mix up the color scheme!
PATRIOTIC PORCH IDEAS
So with summer in full gear here are some patriotic porch decor ideas.
But first, here is our inspiration from BH&G.
Is that the cutest dog? He matches the red, white and blue theme!
I thought it was a stuffed animal when I first saw this photo! Look at this dreamy porch with columns and shutters.
So like all of our challenges, we adapt, pivot, and try new ideas. And if my ideas leave you wanting more scroll to the bottom for a link to BH&G 4th of July porch 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.
This same wreath made an appearance on this popular dining room centerpiece.
I had these spring green lanterns I found at Ikea a few years ago.
II got the idea to f I spray-painted them red so I could use the red lanterns for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Memorial Day, and 4th of July and Labor day. 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 wee 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
Here is a fun pillow idea. I have one pillow with a waxy texture pillow cover. It is weather resistant and because it’s a neutral color I add seasonal ribbon to it and leave it on the little bench.
Because the Denver metro area is under a rain cloud for the third week I am saving this pillow for the porch until we see sunshine!
Our American flag is outside year-round. I just love seeing it blowing in the wind behind the wrought iron railing and windows.
Years ago I bought this little frog at a garage sale. He is a real prince. I spray paint his crown a seasonal paint color.
So I added a pop of red to his crown!
