It was 114º Fahrenheit last week. Well, hello summer in Texas! (Don’t be jealous.) So what did I do in this unforgiving heat? I decorated our front porch, of course. Makes total sense, right? Whatever. But just look at our patriotic front porch!
Can you even call it a porch? It’s more like an alcove…
This year, I’m a JOANN brand ambassador, so I did a little shopping at JOANN to spruce up my front porch/alcove. All of their “Star-Spangled Summer” Americana decor is 50% off right now!
As much as I love a good wreath for the front door, this cute Americana welcome banner is a nice change. I love that it’s perfectly framed by the glass on our front door.
The Fourth of July is coming up and these red, white, and blue metal lanterns are just lovely.
I also planted some sweet potato vine and coleus in with my dwarf olive tree. I just love this little olive tree. I especially love the symbolism behind it: the olive tree is a symbol of peace, restoration, and victory.
Oh, and that pretty storage bench? I designed and built it! You can build one for your own home by following my plans here.
I hope you enjoyed this little tour of our patriotic front porch! Happy summer, friends!
