The 4th of July will be here in soon, so I've started getting the front porch ready for a celebration with family and friends.
Today, I decorated what I like to call the "entry on the front porch"
I'm serving watermelon in several different ways on the 4th, Mojito's......grilled....salsa on the street taco's.......so, I thought I would use watermelons in my decor on the porch.
I made a watermelon banner using some of the prints I have on my Pinterest board. In the center of the banner, I have a Farmers Market sign.
On each side of the Farmers Market sign, I have watermelon slices.
Here's the link to my board if you would like to make a watermelon banner .......https://www.pinterest.com/penny2005/print-it/banners/
I repurposed my metal chargers and used them as "frames"
This project was so easy. I just printed off Farmers Market signs and attached them to my metal charger frame with a magnet.
You can find the signs here.........https://www.pinterest.com/penny2005/print-it/
Then I moved on to the wreath on the front door.
I added a string of watermelons to the existing Peony wreath.
I've had my string of watermelons so long that I don't remember where I even found them.
Probably at a yard sale!
There is plenty of seating for guests on the porch. Two rockers, a wicker sofa, and two chaise lounges.....plus all the seating at the farm table.
The flag picture above the sofa is a permanent fixture on the porch. I know it's been hanging there a couple of years....maybe more. Our winters are mild and it's protected under the porch, so I can leave it up year round.
I created my flag using pastel floral fabric and lace stripes.
I still need to decorate the fireplace mantel and the farm table for the 4th.
Thank you so much for stopping by..........come back soon!
