For me, summer time means Red, White, & Blue! I just love decorating for both the Fourth of July and Memorial Day. Something about patriotic colors is so refreshing and fun. I’ve gathered some of my favorite examples of patriotic home decor that you can make yourself. Hopefully it inspires you to start decorating for the holidays!
