Patriotic Americana Front Porch Décor

Show your stripes…and stars for summer’s biggest holiday. Have a blast using patriotic front-door decorations to create curb appeal that’s all red, white and blue.

For this set up, we recommend using a STAR PATTERN for inspiration.

Create a starburst effect by staggering your front door décor in an intentionally random pattern. Use a wreath or door hanger for the top point, offset topiaries/pots and fill in with fun figural or decorative pieces. The key to making random work is having a cohesive element. So keep your decorative pieces the same theme, color or style.

Taking a step back from perfect symmetry can create a beautiful, elegant look and change your design perspective.

THE DOOR

To give your entrance maximum curb appeal, start at the door and work out. Choose a unique, seasonal wreath for a focal point. Consider the color of your front door before purchasing a wreath. Fortunately 4th of July has three primary colors to mix and match so no matter what color or style door you have, it’s possible to avoid clashing.

If your entrance features bold and bright hues, choose an all-white wreath and incorporate red and blue further away from the door. Conversely, neutral-hued doors (wood stains, white or black) make a full red, white and blue hanger pop.

STYLE TIP

Hang a flag on your door for a simple, cost-effective update. Sometimes basic is better.

FLAG FACT

The Continental Congress actually voted for independence from Great Britain on July 2, 1776. But the Declaration of Independence took 2 days to compose and was ratified July 4, 1776, the day now celebrated.

THE STEPS

The steps and space in front of your door should be artfully filled in with a few patriotic touches. This is a place to let your green thumb shine with potted plants in Old Glory colors (think geraniums, petunias, daisies or even cornflowers). And perhaps the quickest, easiest holiday update is throwing down a new welcome mat.

Try these 3 easy updates:

1. Door Mat

Flag Fact:

Founding Fathers John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, who also signed the Declaration of Independence and served as President, both died on the 4th of July, 1826.

THE PORCH

Expand the patriotic theme and decorate your entire porch. Create a sitting space with seasonal outdoor pillows and add some fun decorative items.

Style Tip:

Save money on outdoor pillows! Buy pillow covers and use plastic bags to stuff them. You’ll recycle AND create a weather-resistant filling.

Flag Fact:

In true American style, 4th of July is a holiday that generates major revenue. It is estimated more than $1 billion is spent each year on fireworks alone. That’s a star-spangled fact!

  1. I wish more homes in the UK had front porches like this- I love it!

  2. Please bring back: DISTRESSED OUTDOOR TABLE NK750197

    It is beautiful and would fit my front porch perfectly. Anyone want to sell theirs?

    1. Donna, thank you for your comment. Unfortunately, we cannot be sure at this time when, or if, we will be able to re-stock the Distressed Outdoor Table. We have a lot of new outdoor decor this season and hope you can find what you need to create a beautiful, welcoming front porch.
