Patriotic Porch – Red, White and Blue Small Spaces!
Patriotic Porch – red, white and blue small spaces decorations. It’s something that I’ve always wanted to do but haven’t had a porch up until now. It’s not a very big porch but nevertheless, it is a porch.
I just got through posting about the 5 Items for your Home Away From Home – Back to Campus and I wanted to show you how some of the items from that room could do double duty.
While shopping at the At Home Store here in Wichita, KS, I picked up a few items to decorate my porch for the holidays, Flag Day, which is today, 4th of July and Labor Day. I normally leave my patriotic decorations up throughout the summer from Memorial Day to Labor Day. I love red, white and blue decorations. My front door is maroon but looks red.
These are the items I picked up at the At Home Store:
1. The Rocker! I have a faux wicker porch swing (that isn’t up obviously) so this faux wicker rocker matches it perfectly. I previously had a wooden rocker and it looked horrible thanks to the weather. This rocker is very comfortable by the way.
2. Pillows! I picked up a red seat cushion pillow as well as a Flag pillow. We take them in nightly just in case we have blowing rain and put them back out in the morning.
3. The Baskets! If you notice, these are the same baskets I used in my dorm room. They were 50% off and I just stacked them on top of each other to make a sort of table. I placed a patriotic decoration inside.
4. Grapevine Lights! I also picked up a set of grapevine lights (you know the kind you hang on the patio) and placed them inside of the basket. It’s hard to see during the day but light up nicely at night.
5. Metal Planter! I bought the blue and white planter with rope handles. It kind of resembles a buoy. I placed an Impatience plant in it because we don’t get a lot of sun on the porch. It also came in red and white.
6. Galvanized Lantern! I placed a battery operated candle inside and placed it on top of my basket table.
Items that I already had for my Patriotic Porch:
7. Patriotic Bench! I bought this 2 years ago at the Longest Yard Sale.
8. Patriotic Decorations! Most of the Patriotic decorations I have had for years and each year I add something to my collection.
9. Metal Lantern! I bought this a couple months ago when we moved into our house. I’m kind of a lantern freak and want to add a bunch more. They have a wide selection at the At Home Store.
10. Patriotic Star! I used to have this hanging on the front of my last house but haven’t hung it up at this house yet.
11. Flag Wreath! I saw something like this on Pinterest once and figured I would do it with my parents flag. Today would have been their 75th wedding anniversary and this flag was hung on the front of our home throughout the years. It gives me great pleasure to display it on my house and on my Patriotic Porch!
You can pick up anything you are looking for at the At Home Store. If you don’t have one near you yet, they are opening more every month!
