The porch has been decked out in stars and stripes in advance of the impending holiday! We still live in this space as much today as we did when we finished it many years ago.
Our neighborhood does a huge fireworks display for the Fourth so we often host friends and family for a pre-show party. I pared down the porch decor the last two summers since we also have the pool area.
Back when we first finished the porch Mother helped me make red and white covers for my throw pillows. I just slide them right on top of the regular ones for an easy change up that takes up virtually no space in storage. The flag pillow was another Pottery Barn find from a few years ago.
The table runner is another thing I’ve had for ages. It was also from Pottery Barn back in the day. I still remember taking a newborn photo of Jay Bird on this runner – he arrived May 29 but was due July 4. <3 We recreated it for years!
For an easy 2-minute centerpiece, I filled four mason jars with hydrangeas and two flags to sit inside of my vintage Coke crate. You can see my tips for working with hydrangeas in this post.
I have also used the same American Flag Bunting for years. I love that it is decorative from both outside and inside the porch.
We are entertaining on the third and fourth this year and I can’t wait to fill the house up with friends!
