Nothing is more American that showing your patriotic colors to show your pride! Yesterday was such a special day as we celebrated Memorial Day in remembrance of all the souls that lost their lives so that we can have freedom.
Soon we will be celebrating the 4th of July!
Today I've teamed up with a fabulous group of bloggers to bring your our next Pinterest Challenge for all things patriotic decor.
I want to give a big shout out to my sweet blogging friend, Cindy, from County Road 407 for organizing such a creative monthly tour. Be sure to follow along because each month we are taking one photo for inspiration and each one of us is recreating it with our special spin.
This month's inspiration is the photo above from Home Is Where The Boat Is. I have long admired Mary's home and style. You've got to visit her blog because you will be inspired! Thanks so much Mary for allowing us to use your photo for inspiration.
If you are stopping by from Decor to Adore then welcome!
Here is my take on the inspiration photo. That antique couch cushions are hunter green. To make it work, I layered 2 white quilted throws to create the look.

I simply added the Flag Pillow Cover and an assortment of dollar store flags. It all came together very quickly. The pillow will be great under our covered porch and coming in at under $9 it's a great addition. It's a cover so I just zipped it over one of my existing outdoor pillows.
I sewed the blue and white pillows with outdoor tablecloths that I picked up at Tuesday Morning. Then I went around the house and pulled other blue and white elements.
I picked up these adorable bicycle melamine plates from a store in Wilmington, NC. They look like paper plates!
Create my “floral” arrangement with dollar store flags and boxes of sparklers.
You can see a bit of the green peeking out on the sides.
Decorating Tip: Place styrofoam in a white vase then fill it with flags and stars to create another arrangement.
Adding patriotic touches can be very simple when weaving them into your existing decor.
Red, white and blue truly works all summer long! BUT if you want to go back to your regular colors, simply remove the flags…..it's that simple.

Here is the complete tour line-up! I am so excited about this month's challenge!!
