Ahh, the smell of freshly mown grass, the tic – tic – tic of early morning sprinklers, and the sounds of children laughing floating in through open windows; the joys of summer have arrived! Here in Wisconsin the season is short, so we embrace it with enthusiasm. And what shouts summer more than a traditional 4th of July?This is absolutely the best time of year to make a bold, patriotic statement with country home decor. At the Country Village Shoppe we have an amazing selection of Americana, Vintage, Farmhouse and Primitive decor, just right for celebrating Independence Day (and the whole summer season) in style.
Because I love to spend time on my porch and patio in the warm weather, I use lots of fun ideas to bring the spirit of ‘76 to my outdoor living space. Here are a few suggestions for you:
icture your front porch or entry way festooned with our Patriot’s Point bunting valence. These are easy to hang using eye-hooks and bungee cords The bungees keep the bunting hanging taut and are simple to put up,take down, and store. The Patriot’s Point Swag/Runner can also be used as bunting, a swag or even a table runner. I plan to use a few table runners in one of our Americana patterns (such as Burlap Star, Star Spangled, or Star and Stripes
Of course, summer is the time for barbecues and al fresco entertaining. Even a simple country meal can be a celebration with a charming country chic setting. I suggest you brighten your table with our Stars and Stripe Colletion. Burlap is still one of the hottest looks this year. Our vintage-look burlap accessories bring to mind the “ old country store” but are comfy soft cotton and drape beautifully. Light the scene with a delicious Apple Butter Home Candle and enjoy!
Inside or out, you can have fun with these eye-catching ways to bring color and Americana style to your home.
