For some people, the best part about having a patio is having a place to relax, enjoy the warm weather, and occasionally throw a party. For other people, the best part is having a place that is perfect for seasonal decorating. (Opting to love both is totally okay too!) If decorating your home is your jam, the summer is a great time to do it (second only to fall)! The summer in most American towns lends itself to doing patriotic displays of red, white, and blue, especially for the 4th of July. Here are some cute decorating ideas that you can consider for your patio to get ready for the upcoming holiday.
Decorating With Furniture And Flowers
Let’s assume that the bare minimum you have to work with is just a patio – no steps, railings, or roof structure. You can still decorate for the holiday. Start with your furniture. It’s likely an outdoor set with removable cushions. In that case, consider swapping the cushions for some red, white, and blue ones. Another way to add patriotic color is with potted flowers. Once you add the pots to the patio, you can change out the flowers or plants for different seasons. Finally, add an outdoor throw rug to the patio that feels festive for the season. Depending on the material of the patio, you could even decorate the concrete with chalk.
If your patio has railings or benches around the perimeter, use them to hang decorative elements. This is a great place to string garland, banners or bunting. If your patio isn’t covered, you could also use the railings to string lights or ad a flat surface for lanterns. Stairs, if you have them, are also a great place for lanterns.
Decorating The “Ceiling”
If your patio has a pergola or cover, use it! String lights between to posts and banners along the beams. You can also hang signs on posts and from the ceiling. The 4th of July lends itself to signage well, especially up-cycled signs like flags made from pallets.
Decorating Around The Patio
Finally, don’t forget to decorate around the yard too. A beautiful yard can help accent the decorations that you add to your patio. If you plan your garden right, you could have red, white, and blue flowers in bloom (in the ground or in pots) during the peak of summer and for 4th or July. You could also use special grass paint and stencils to paint stars on the grass.
