Favorites on the First: Patriotic Decor

Happy Birthday America!

We love to celebrate the Fourth
and getting our 
red, white and blues
out to show our pride.

We salute all the 
men and women
of our great country on this day
that have fought to protect the flag
and everything it stands for.

This is what it looks like today
at The Polohouse,
but more smaller flags will be added
to the scene on Thursday morning.

Show us your patriotic touches!

Link below and invite your friends to 
stop by and join the party too.
Everyone is invited and feel free to
take the FOTF button below 
to add it to your post if you wish!

Take this and add it to your post or sidebar!

Looking out the front door....

Always bring your flags in at sunset
or light them properly if they are hanging 
after night falls. When you hang your bunting --
the blue should always be at the top.

I really love the American flag because of its design and symbol. I love celebrating 4th of July too coz’ first, it’s a major holiday so we get to spend time with family and friends. Second is we get to do the things we love like eating, going to the beach and party, party all night! Isn’t that fun?
