I love when it’s time to change seasons and decorate our front porch in celebration of something new. We always indulge in some patriotic front porch decorating that signals the beginning of the summer season – starting with Memorial Day. I usually put up my patriotic decor the week of Memorial Day and we enjoy it all season long.
You don’t have to be talented to spruce up your porch, you just need a few creative ideas to spark your imagination. These front porch ideas don’t require much work and they’re the perfect way to celebrate the patriotic summer holidays – without breaking the bank too.
Looking for even more patriotic ideas? I’ve got you covered. These are some of my favorite recipes to make if you’re hosting a party for Memorial Day or 4th of July!
