Volume 2 Issue 1 Spring-Summer 2015
By Tam McClure, Staff Writer
ed, white and blue are the colors of summer in the United States. From May through September, Americans celebrate patriotic holidays including Memorial Day, Flag Day, Armed Forces Day, and Independence Day, Labor Day and Patriot Day. There is no other season that gives you more bang for your decorating dollar.
PATRIOTIC DECOR TABLE TOP
For an easy centerpiece, add a few stick flags and some patriotic ribbon to a floral arrangement. It is that simple, but you can make your decorations as elaborate as you want. See page 14 for table decorating ideas.
FlagandBanner.com carries an array of ribbons, garland and flags for flower or wreath arrangements. Watch our “How to add ribbon to a pre-made wreath” YouTube video to learn ways you can dress up a seasonal wreath.
PATRIOTIC DECOR FOR THE YARD
To add interest to fences or porch rails, weave patriotic fabric (also known as bunting) between the slots. Weave evenly, or vary your pattern for different effects. You can create an elegant, draping effect by adding fabric ties to gather the bunting every two or three feet. This technique is also an attractive option for eaves.
USING PULL DOWNS
Glamorize indoor and outdoor columns in a snap with pulldowns, which are long, thin strips of material festooned with stars and stripes. They come in many patriotic designs like the circular 13 colonial stars, and can be a variety of lengths.
In addition to decorating columns, you can use pulldowns to frame windows and entryways.
Visit flagandbanner.com and search bunting or decorating for everything you need to decorate your home or office. Take advantage of this season to show off your patriotic spirit. Red, white and blue are always on trend.
