Patriotic Porch Decorations For 4th of July

Are you looking for some patriotic porch decoration ideas? Here are some creative ideas for 4th of July porch decorations that you are going to love.

This was a fun challenge, and I had a couple of interruptions during the photo shoot.

You may notice a few differences as you scroll along. See if you can spot the differences.

I hope you’ll point them out to me in the comments.

I’m joining Cindy at County Road 407 for her monthly Pinterest Challenge, and this month’s inspiration is a Patriotic Porch from Better Homes and Gardens.

In addition to my porch ideas, you can link to all the other blogger’s inspiration. If you are joining me from Kristin at White Arrows Home, welcome. Her lakeside porch is decorated perfectly for the 4th of July.

Patriotic Porch Decoration Challenge

First, I like to use as many elements in the inspiration photo as possible without spending any money.

Here are the key elements that I was able to find in my patriotic stash.

  • Vintage American Flag (since I don’t have bunting flags)
  • Small Flags
  • White ironstone pitcher
  • Red and White check fabric
  • Red, White, and Blue plaid pillows
  • Watermelon plates
  • Red geraniums
  • Porch Swing
  • Wicker Porch Furniture
  • Oh, and don’t forget the cute pup – be sure to see Rudy at the end.

I hope you like my interpretation of the patriotic porch.

4th of July Porch Decorations

For this challenge, I decided to decorate the seating area on our master bedroom front porch.

First, the vintage American flag was moved from the she shed greenhouse and added above the swing.

A strand of string white lights was draped across the flag to highlight the area in the evening.

What better way to add patriotic touches than adding lots of flags to the plants and floral arrangements.

With an abundance of red geraniums in the garden, it was easy to make an arrangement with small flags in the white ironstone pitcher.

In order to add texture, the pitcher is place inside a round basket tray and surrounded by a small eucalyptus wreath.

Because I didn’t have any fresh watermelon on hand, these cute watermelon plates were added to the coffee table vignette.

To complete the coffee table, I add one of my favorite summer candles and surrounded it with a floral candle ring.

Additional patriotic decor such as this flag pillow, helps to make the porch feel festive for the upcoming 4th of July weekend.

I’m always picking up red decor to use seasonally on the porch and this thrifted red lantern is a favorite because it works for the 4th of July as well as Christmas.

Finally, the inspiration photo showed a plaid seat cushion on the porch swing. However instead of buying new seat cushions, I covered the existing ones with a red and white check fabric.

The front porch seating area is a favorite spot to relax and enjoy the view of all three ponds.

In addition to the swing, there are two antique wicker chairs for comfortable seating.

Awww, I bet you thought I forgot to add the cute pup! Well, to be honest, I almost did!!!

However, I pulled Rudy in at the last minute for this cute photo opt.

Do you notice anything else that’s different? Please comment if you do.
