Vintage Patriotic Inspiration



Happy Wednesday, Friends! I cannot believe it's the end of June--how did that happen? With the Fourth of July less than a week away, today I'm sharing a little vintage patriotic inspiration that will carry you through Labor Day. From mini projects and table decor to garden planters, I've got you covered, whether you're a DIY queen or prefer to shop online to get the look...

For me, vintage and patriotic decor go hand in hand as evidenced in the Summertime! tablescape pictured above. Vintage table linens, enamelware, milk glass and a mini Old Glory create a retro patriotic vibe.

For outdoor centerpieces, I like to keep it simple. Here, small pots of vinca are wrapped with red burlap ribbon, then paired with a vintage pewter star and tucked inside a thrift store basket to create a look that's casual, yet festive. In the background, you can see the oilcloth I use on most of my outdoor tables.

After scoring them at an estate sale, I used a pair of vintage toolboxes to create junk-tastic planters.

Here, just add spray paint, flowers and a pinwheel to a worn wicker chair to recreate it as a colorful patriotic planter.
