Summer is the perfect time to sit back , relax, vacation and display your patriotic spirit!
And here are a few ideas that will take your simple summer florals from WOW to POW, with a splash of Red, White & Blue!!
During the summer months, decorating your home with hearty red geraniums is very popular.
These flowers also look GREAT with a touch of Americana added in!
In the photos below, you will notice how nice the white door basket & white wicker planter look… simply filled with red geraniums.
However, when Veteran’s, Memorial, Labor or Independence Day rolls around, simply placing a few flags in each
is a wonderful way to easily add some Americana!
INDEPENDENCE DAY CELEBRATION TIPS:
