Patriotic Ideas & Projects

Let’s start at the front door

with Ann of On Sutton Place.

Ann is a master of the

wreath as you can see. 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 Rachel of Maison de Pax.

This trio can be front and center in your home all season long.

Having guests for a summer dinner party?

I set a table  with a patriotic theme complete with pinwheels, flags and sparklers.

You can view the details here in my post at:  Housepitality Designs.

I also  incorporated sunflowers and  my guests went home with a personalized

goodie box!

How about for dessert

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!

Party a success and friends decide to stay 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

at the ready for all your summer socializing.

Not wine drinkers ~ add a bottle of estate olive oil or aged

balsamic vinegar. Always a welcome gift.
