This summer, I am creating a lemon & Patriotic theme for our front porch.
The '"softer" side of red, white and blue fits in better with my decor, so I'm using pink in place of red and a pale blue instead of the darker blue.
I also chose a softer shade of yellow to use in my lemon banner.
I hung my banner across a vintage Home Interior Patriotic picture......it's dated 2001 on the back and has the softer shades of color that I like so much.
I made my banner using pints that I found on Pinterest and I printed them off on my home printer. I've found that my inexpensive printer from Walmart (less than $75) does a great job!
I actually made 2 banners and chose the smaller one to hang across my picture.......and I will use the larger one somewhere else on the porch.
I spotted some shabby chic pillow cases on Amazon the other day, but the $70 cost for 2 pillow cases was a little pricey for my budget.
I have a twin size floral tailored bedspread on the wicker sofa that I found at a yard sale for $5. I leave the bedspread on all the time, but I only put the vintage yellow quilt on when I'm having company and I bring it in at the end of the day.
I have a simple container of lemons on the small table in front of the sofa. (byw, another yard sale purchase....lol)
On the right side of the sofa are the 2 rockers that H & I sit in most of the time.......
I bought a king size set of pink and white striped sheets at a yard sale for $5 and I used them to cover the pads on the 2 chaise lounges you'll see in a minute, one of the pads on a rocker, and I made a tablecloth for the farm table too!
Next to the rockers is the front door......

I'm really pleased with how the Patriotic / lemon theme is coming along on the front porch.
Here's the tablecloth that I made with part of my king size sheet set.
On the left side of the sofa I have matching wicker chaise lounges. When H & I are not in the rocking chairs, you'll find us relaxing on our chaise lounges with a glass of sweet tea!
I am planning to have a dinner party on the porch in a couple of days, and I can't wait to share the pretty lemon plates I will use! Found them at Dollar Tree!
Did you notice the vintage end tables I have on each side of the sofa? Yep, they came from a yard sale too! The yellow lamp with a metal shade on the end table?......yard sale....lol!
I always enjoy your visits so much, please come back soon!
