Flag Bunting Porch

Happy Memorial Day weekend friends!  Hope you are enjoying some barbecued hot dogs and living it up this three day weekend!  I took the opportunity to pull out some of my summer decor this last week in preparation for today.

I picked up my flag bunting a few years ago after summer on clearance {because these babies can be expensive!}.  I have always loved the look of flag bunting on old historical buildings.  It has a bit of a downtown southern charm to it.  

My little flags have served me well.  Since they are made of real flag material {is that a thing?}, they hold well in the sun and with any moisture.  At the end of summer I just throw them in the wash before they get stored.  

Since I am channeling my inner minimalist I decided these were going to be my only Patriotic decor this year.  Simple decorations with a huge wow factor. 

Some new flowers have been planted and I am enjoying watch my plants grow more and more each season.  All that hard works seems to promise new reward every year!

Have you started decorating for summer?
