Summer is winding down, and that means it’s time to add some patriotic décor to our homes. Whether you want to go all out with red, white and blue, or you just want a few simple touches, we have the ideas that will bring Americana into your home for the season.
Add some festive flair to any room with these ideas.
You can, of course, add an American flag to your home décor, and this can be done in a variety of ways. Here we added a large painted American flag to a patriotic mantel. You can easily paint any board to look like a flag, or purchase one online. This type of patriotic décor can be used year after year in a variety of ways.
You can also use versions of the flag itself as décor. Here we purchased a replica of an old version of the flag and trimmed it to work as a table runner. This idea works great for your home décor or just for a Fourth of July party.
Marquee signs are all the rage, and décor that lights up screams Americana to me! Here we turned a box into a fun patriotic marquee sign. Light it up for a fun and festive addition to your patriotic décor. Make a few of these for outdoor parties during the summer. They’re perfect for lighting up the night!
You can also use red, white and blue string lights around your home for parties and more. Here we used the string lights in mason jars for a cute display. This is perfect for the center of a table at any patriotic party you’re hosting this summer.
If you love to party during the summer, patriotic décor is definitely the way to go! Make sure you serve up your dishes on patriotic-themed plates and serving trays. Add your napkins, straws, silverware and more to patriotic-themed containers.
You can even add patriotic-themed labels to the food. Kick your Fourth of July party up a notch by trying a few of these ideas. Your guests will love the additional festive touches, and you may be able to use a few of them around your home even after the party ends.
However you add patriotic décor to your home, it is sure to liven up your space over the summer months. Use a few of our ideas for the entire summer or just for those great summer parties. Either way, celebrate America this summer by adding a little red, white and blue to your home!
