Hey guys! 4th of July is just around the corner, so I teamed up with some crazy-talented bloggers for a Patriotic Porch Tour hosted by Amber at Follow The Yellow Brick Home! If you’re coming over from checking out the gorgeous porch at The Tattered Pew, welcome!
This is the sight that will greet you when you come into our driveway. The front porch/door faces the street, but our driveway comes into the right side of our house by our garage. Our front door is to the right of the welcome sign. Even though this isn’t our front door, I like to decorate this area since it is the first thing guests will see when they come over.
What do you do for 4th of July if you celebrate? We normally just play it by ear. If we get invited to a party, we’ll go; if not, we’ll just hang out and barbecue at the house. That’s one thing I really like about 4th of July (besides it’s our country’s independence day) – it’s an easygoing holiday that doesn’t take a lot of prep work to get ready for. I wish all holidays were like that – I think we get too busy preparing for some of our holidays that we’re exhausted by the time the holiday gets here and then we can’t enjoy it.
This is the view from the front of our house. Our front door is to the left and our driveway is to the right.
I wanted to use pillows with patriotic colors, but I didn’t have any on hand. I decided to make my own using dish towels!
The wind was whipping around pretty good on the day I took these pictures. You’ll notice that in a lot of the pictures the flags are flapping to the left in the direction the wind was blowing. I was lucky to get a break in the wind for a couple of seconds to snap this picture without the flags being blown backwards!
Next up on the tour is The Tattered Pew and her gorgeous patriotic porch! Be sure to check out all the patriotic porches through the links below!
Thanks so much for checking out my porch and enjoy the rest of the lovely porches on the tour!
Have a safe and happy 4th of July!
