Outdoor holiday decorations for the 4th of July let you share your love of America with all who see your home. Make your yard the showplace for the neighborhood for this patriotic holiday.
You’ll get multiple uses from these red, white and blue yard decorations. They’ll look great for the 4th of July, Flag Day, Veteran’s Day and Memorial Day. You can even put them up for 9-11 as well.
I put my decorations up well before each holiday and keep them up for a week or so afterwards. That way I get more mileage out of my efforts.
When I decorate for the 4th of July, all the red, white and blue reminds me of the sacrifices my ancestors made for our country. Besides the Revolutionary War, my forefathers served in the Civil War and in World War I.
I’ve done quite a bit of research on my great-great grandfather and his time in the Indiana Volunteer Infantry during the War Between the States. I want to research earlier ancestors and their service in the 1700s and the War of 1812 too. I like to honor them by going all out with the patriotic decorations.
Put rope lights on your porch railing, up along your eaves, around your doorway… whatever looks good to you. My husband loves the way he can outline an area on the patio with rope lights and even weave them into a trellis we have.
Celebrating the 4th of July
I put out my bunting and flags for Memorial Day, Flag Day, the 4th of July and for Veteran’s Day.
The 4th of July is the one we celebrate the most. Usually it is with a BBQ with my husband’s cousins and then we watch the fireworks from their backyard.
I make sure to decorate our yard and the back patio too with all the red, white and blue decorations that I have.
We have this set of lights and they look great with the red, white and blue. We like them so much, we got some green globes to use for St Patrick’s Day and to mix with the red for Christmas.
Patriotic Bunting for Your Porch Railing

My neighbor had these all across her front porch railing. It looked terrific, so I got some too. I get my decorating ideas from taking a walk around the neighborhood and seeing what catches my eye.
