My kids are all done with school for the year, and Memorial Day is right around the corner… I can’t believe summer is here already! To help you get rolling this year, I’ve teamed up with some of my wonderful bHome friends to bring you some patriotic, summer inspiration:
So starts the season of red, white and blue,
we’ve gathered ideas and projects from us to you
to carry the theme from May all the way through…
Patriotic Ideas & Projects
Let’s start at the front door with Ann of On Sutton Place.
Ann makes the most beautiful wreaths. Her front door and porch welcome visitors and the season while decked out in tasteful red, white and blue.
Inside you can add an all American favorite – the Mason jar! Not just regular Mason jars, but American Flag jars by Yours Truly of Maison de Pax. 😉
This trio can be front and center in your home all season long.
Having guests for a summer dinner party? Set the table like Shirley of Housepitality Designs.
I lone how Shirley incorporated sunflowers and that everyone got a goodie box!
How about dessert? A major priority in my book… and you’ll want something that goes hand in hand with America the beautiful – Apple Pie.
Apple Hand Pies to be exact. These from Vanessa and Heather of At The Picket Fence can even be carried outside to the watch the fireworks!
Summer is a great time for visit and travel, too… Do you have friends staying the night? Don’t be caught with your flags down – have your guest room decked out in patriotic flair like Kim of Savvy Southern Style!
Aren’t the flags in the ironstone pitcher simply perfect? This is something you could do way ahead of time, unlike flowers.
Not hosting, but being hosted? Whip up a few webbing wine bags by Kelly of My Soulful Home. That way, you’ll have a hostess gift at the ready for all your summer socializing.
Not wine drinkers? Try a bottle of estate olive oil or aged balsamic vinegar. Always a welcome gift.
