Patriotic Banner and Free Printables

Memorial Day is just 3 weeks away! 
 I've kind of  always thought of  Memorial Day as the beginning of summer.......July 4th as the middle of  summer.......and Labor Day as the end of summer.     

So ......with so many of the Patriotic holidays coming during "my summer months"  .......I think of red,  white,  and blue as my go to colors for summer decorating.

This year,    I came up with the idea that if I used Patriotic colors to decorate the hallway..... I could use most of the same decor all summer with very few changes needed.   

 I'm hoping that my time saving idea will allow me more time to spend outside in the garden!

I printed some of my favorite Patriotic pictures to display in the empty window frames I have hanging in the hallway

I love this photo with the flag surrounded by my favorite flowers......Roses!

Did you know that Memorial Day used to be called Decoration Day?

I chose several watercolor photo's to put in my empty frames

I love this big red white and blue bow tied around a may see me use this idea in my outdoor decorating

This flag has inspired me to make a Patriotic rag flag using a lot of my fabric scraps

I printed off a fun banner to hang across the headboard that's under my window frames

If you would like to have a floral Patriotic banner .....pop over to Marie's blog and get a free copy!

If you would like to use any of the prints you see over to my Pinterest board.......

This was such a fun project.......

The vintage Patriotic seed packets are so colorful.......

I tried to pick photo's to display that included some of the pastel colors that I use around the house.

I also picked a couple of prints that have rose wreaths in them......

I'm planning to use my Patriotic them in the front yard too!
