Porch Decorating Inspiration Needed

(wishful thinking)
Not My Porch

Good Thursday friends and followers. I've been wanting to freshen up my front porch for some time now. I couldn't think of a better time to do it than now. With Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day upon us, I thought a Patriotic Theme would carry over for several months and I would only have to make a few minimal changes over that period of time.

I tried to pick some Internet pictures that might work with some things I already have. My mother in law gave me an old wagon that could be used for a display similar to this one. Of course I would have to paint it. It is a bright yellow wagon.

I have a larger galvanized tub that would handle a display like this one. Anyone know of a good place to pick up flags at a cheap price?

I know I have some bunting but I don't think we have our regular flag anymore. Maybe it would work just as well hanging at the end of the porch. What do you think?

This would make a beautiful door hanger. I know I should have an old wreath somewhere that I could take apart and add blue and red flowers too. Any ideas for making the firecracker for the middle?

I believe I am on the right track with my ideas but I can always use a little help from fellow decorators. I have a few other pieces here and there that I could incorporate as well I suppose. If memory serves me, I have a flag throw, some flag pillows and maybe a mat or two. Possibly a rug or two in red or blue? I welcome all ideas.

Well I'm off to dig out some decorations. Maybe I will get in some shopping this evening if you guys come up with some good ideas for me!

Hugs and blessings,
