Summer Patriotic Patio Decor

Do you decorate your outside spaces like you decorate the inside of your home?  I do!  We spend lots of time out on our patio during warm weather months, so why not not make it pretty too?!  This is my Summer Patriotic decor.
We have our patio table and chairs that are old, but still functional.  My honey made the table top out of an old wooden spool which increased the size of the top so we have more room for stuff and eating of course.  How adorable are those watermelon pillows?  I got those at Three Little Mommas!  Click here and tell them DeeDee sent you!  See more of my collection HERE.
I just used a few push pins to hang this flag bunting up.  It was easy to push them right into the wood.
Of course I love the old farmhouse vintage look, so the centerpiece consist of a piece of the old table top with a locker basket, a minnow bucket with flowers and a flag.  There are galvanized buckets that we usually place things like napkins in when we're eating out here.  That Uncle Sam is a tea light holder that we can light when its after dark for a little flickering flame.  Oh and of course, a few Pioneer Woman coasters and the citronella candle to keep away the bugs!
We also put up some LED string lights (along the bottom edge of the patio cover) for after dark and we use tiki torches too.  The tiki torches add light and keep bugs away if you use the citronella oil in them.

Just like most of my decorating inside of the house, I just shop my stash and use what I have.  No need to buy new stuff when you probably already have plenty to achieve a cute look! :)

It doesn't have to be done all at once.  It is a slow process in the works! C-ya next time!

    1. Hi Julie! Thank you! Years ago, I actually had my entire kitchen decorated in Americana. I normally just have little vignettes here and there and it works out well. :)
