Decorating with the American Flag

I hope everyone will enjoy a safe and happy Independence Day tomorrow! In honor of the 4th of July, here are some inspirational photos that showcase the Stars and Stripes.

Fingers crossed, it won't rain tomorrow so we'll be able to enjoy a magnificent fireworks display at the country club not far from our home. Every year, hundreds of folks set up chairs and blankets around the perimeter of the golf course to enjoy the show. Other weekend plans include making some new frozen popsicle treats, which I will share with you in an upcoming post. 

How will you be spending your 4th of July weekend?

Note: When hanging the flag vertically, like in the two photos below,
be sure the field of stars is in the upper left corner.

And here is our bungalow. We hang the flag at Memorial Day and leave it up through Labor Day. We always leave the porch light on overnight. I love the punch of color the flag brings to our house, not to mention the patriotic message it sends. Happy 4th of July!

  1. Happy 4th of July, neighbour to the south! Loved all of your flag examples!

    I hope you have great weather and get to enjoy the fireworks in all their glory.

    We celebrated Canada Day on Wednesday, and it rained all day long. Because the holiday fell in the middle of the week, lots of companies were open and will take today off instead. In Quebec, the holiday can slide, in the rest of Canada, it's a statutory on the given day.

    Somehow it didn't feel like a holiday this year.

    But on the 4th we'll raise a toast to the US flag that flies on our neighbour's property and think of you!

    1. Thank you, Ann! Happy Canada Day to you and yours!! I hope today's weather is better. After going a long time with no rain, we're now getting a bunch. Hope it won't ruin the dahlias ... but I shouldn't complain, as we do need the rain. Just not on the 4th of July.
