So starts the season of red, white and blue,
we've gathered ideas and projects from us to you
to carry the theme from May all the way thru...
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 & blue.
This trio can be front and center in your home all season long.
Having guests for a summer dinner party? Set the table like Shirley of Housepitality Designs.
Love how Shirley incorporated sunflowers and that everyone got a 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 me!
Aren't the flags in the ironstone pitcher I added last year 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 gift 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.
