Red, White and Blue Monday Porch Party

Are you thinking red, white and blue yet?   I have been, quite a bit lately!  I am the cruising fleet events coordinator for our  sailing club this year and we are hosting yet another party for the fourth of July.  My thoughts have been on Independence Day overload with planning,  but I will share more on that later!  This post is all about my own home!

I have several things in in the works for this special time of the year!  Today I was able to complete the first of what I hope to be several posts in celebration of “Independence Day”.  After my usual hectic Monday chores, I was able to prepare the front porch.  Lucky for me, I didn’t even spend a dime on this transformation as I already had everything on hand.  With a few easy switches and rearranging this is my Fourth of July front porch!

I started with simply adding a few small flags to the milk can.

Then my sassy rooster received a sporty new “blue” bow with sparkly gold trim!

Then I swapped out my multicolored flowers for these white flowers in a blue hanging basket.  I haven’t been able to find a permanent place for this arrangement yet after putting it together several weeks ago, so I am happy to have it here for now.  I found this fantastic basket at a consignment store and the flowers were from a Kirklands.  I love it!

The front door got a new look I put together with an extra grapevine wreath I had and flowers.
  I even had the bow already!  It only need a little fluffing!

Then I swapped my oil lanterns out with these “blue” candle lanterns I had in the back!

So glad I gave them a fresh coat of paint this year!

And finally, I had nothing to do with this one but mother nature did!  My big beautiful red geranium has decided to bloom again, right on queue!  For some reason it has been sitting bloom less for some time. 

  Sorry, I am really having a time photographing true reds!
They are not this orange and really are very red and beautiful!

That’s how I spent a part of my Monday!  Hope you like it and hope your getting inspired too!
Everyone loves a little red, white and blue!
