This year we’re excited to welcome new traditions with neighbors and friends, to celebrate Memorial Day and to kick off the summer season in our new home.
Memorial Day Porch Decorations
Today I’m featuring home and garden decor from Plow & Hearth who graciously sponsored this post and sent me a variety of beautiful home decor which inspired my porch project. Plus, they’re also giving away $250 to a Snazzy reader!
Patriotic decor fits well in any neighborhood, ours in particular reminds me of colonial Williamsburg with Greek Revival and Federal style architecture with cute yards and picket fences. The bonus is that these houses are 15 years new. Low maintenance homes with a vintage vibe. 🙂
Check out this adorable Kingsgate Birdhouse. It even lights up! For now it has a home right here until the rest of our landscape is done.
This is the view that made me fall in love with our new place.
It’s been 9 months since we moved in, once the warm weather kicked in it inspired a DIY landscaping project.
We are building up the flower beds, adding some landscape pavers…and these lovely new solar lights from Plow & Hearth.
Stay tuned for updates…I’m mapping out a flowerbed design that I hope will offer year-round greenery, cut flowers, and hopefully low maintenance. I’m working hard to overcome my black thumb! Wish me luck…
To all the servicemen and women who have fought to keep our country free and the stars and stripes flying proudly from sea to shining sea….
….I salute you.
