Home & Gardening last week Share Tweet Pin Share The 4th of July often sneaks up on me. I think because I’m not anticipating the holiday until July finally arrives, and then I only have four days before it’s come and gone. But this year, I am working on preparing my home for the holiday with patriotic colors of red, white, and blue! Bonus: Want to stay up to date on our latest Rare Norm news ? We wanted to give you some inspiration and decided to start with the first place you see — the front porch! Source: lizmarieblog.com 1. Patriotic Farmhouse Porch Since I just moved into a farmhouse, the above picture caught my eye immediately! It has a welcoming, rustic vibe! The wicker furniture makes a great backdrop for the patriotic-themed pillows, and I love the look of the flag hung up on the wall! They incorporated the greenery with the red, white, and blue theme! I honestly wasn’t confident my house plants would fit on my porch next to these colors, but this picture proved me wrong.

My home has an awkward front porch entryway. We have two doors side by side, and, no, it’s not a double door. It’s literally one door on one side of the porch and another door next to it. No one ever knows which door to come into, so this wreath looks like a great way for me to “mark” our entrance while showing pride this holiday. Source: princesspinkygirl.com 3. A Rock’n Fourth of July I am obsessed with rocking chairs! If I didn’t have a pretty awesome porch swing, I would have these white rocking chairs in a heartbeat! They look great with the bright, red checkered throw pillows! The white pitcher also makes a great vase for the arrangement of miniature American flags sitting on the table.

Decorate the topiary with a Fourth of July theme to use as the table’s centerpiece. The wide variety of patriotic decor in this front porch layout can also be reused for any weekend holiday celebrations! Check out Trees ‘n Trends for home, fashion and decor, and more!

Instead of buying brand new decor for the Fourth of July holiday, reuse what you already have and add a red, white, and blue accessory or patriotic saying such as “Let Freedom Ring” written on a chalkboard.
