Decorating the Porch for Independence Day

I haven't done a lot of decorating for the 4th, but I did get a wreath made for the front door.



I used a wreath form, mesh ribbon, and burlap ribbon pieces to make this.  I probably have $8.00 worth of supplies in it, but I already had all of it, so nothing new was purchased.

Next, I filled this small tote with red, white, and blue flowers that I already had, and placed it on the table between the rockers on the porch.







I found this sign a couple of years ago at consignment, I think.




 I placed small flags in the pots next to the concrete bench near the front door.


Not easy to see, but the flag hangs in the side yard on the electrical pole.




 Our ferns have looked so good this summer.  I usually don't have good luck with them.  The secret for us has been to water late EVERY evening.  They have thrived!!




This red, white, and blue basket holds citronella candles.  This little area always gets a fabulous breeze, so we sit on the side porch a lot.




Wishing everyone a safe and happy holiday!!  Let's all cherish our freedom!
