Red White and Blue: Our Patriotic House

Our family doesn’t have any huge plans for Independance Day. We might attend the local parade, and we will most certainly spend the better part of our afternoon in the new splash pool we surprised the kids with over the weekend (in preparation for 90+ temps all this week!)

Since we’re all about red, white, and blue today, I thought it was fitting to update and re-share an old post — ALL about our patriotic decor!

There are several new pictures (and also some older pictures) so if you happen to see the same decorations in different areas of our home, you’ll know why 🙂

Happy 4th of July!


When we first moved into our farmhouse, one of the first neighbor families to introduce themselves to us mentioned that they called our house the “patriotic house” because of the red, white, and blue bunting on the front porch.

At the time, I was already a HUGE fan of red, white, and blue for decorating purposes… and since then, I have managed to incorporate quite a bit of patriotic items into our decor.

In fact, almost every area of our home (inside and outside) has at least a little red, white, and blue, as well as a few stars and stripes!

I guess we really ARE the “patriotic house”!

And look how much the kids have changed in just 2 years!

    Hi Andrea,

    What does the yellow flag stand for? I can’t read what is written on it from the picture and I’m curious.

    Thanks

    You do have incorporated many red, white and blues on your normal decors. Very nice! That’s also perfect for the Christmas season.

    I love it! Love the Americana decor. The striped curtains with the buttons? Did you make those? Adorable! Very, very cute.

    Thanks Shelly — and yes, I just made those button curtains for the kid’s bathroom a couple weeks ago. 🙂

    They turned out really cute!

    I have always loved your flag bunting! I wish we had space to hang one somewhere on our home. We have a very patriotic house inside, so I love seeing yours! Happy 4th of July to your family…and continued prayers as you wait to welcome the new baby!

    I love it! Happy 4th of July! Your decor is so sweet. I am looking to incorporate more farmhouse decor into our house since we live on an actual egg farm. 🙂

    Andrea Reply:

    wow — and actual egg farm. that’s cool! If I didn’t love it so much, I’d mail you my metal chicken towel hook (pictured in this post)… but I just can’t part with it!

    It’s so cute! I would tell you to consider getting a few hens, but I feel like three kids, a full time business, your blog and over all life- chickens are the last thing you need.

    I tell everyone to get chickens for the eggs. I thought my husband was nuts a year ago when he started with chicks. I am now an egg snob! LOVE our own eggs. SO much better than the store!

    Andrea Reply:

    Yeah, and we have a nicely “manicured” yard that I have a feeling the chickens wouldn’t keep that way 🙂

    Andrea,
    Where did you get the chicken towel hook? I love it! We have 13 backyard chickens. Love your patriotic decor.

    Andrea Reply:

    Thanks Lisa! The towel hook is unfortunately from a garage sale about 8 years ago!

    Thanks Tammy! I have several old watering cans that I use for outdoor decorations around our house. I love them too!!
