  • 3+ Ways to Style this Patriotic Pillow Case

The easiest, fastest, and most budget-friendly way to change decor for every season is with pillows!

  • 3+ Ways to Style this Patriotic Pennant Banner

The design of pennant banners dates back to Europe and the Middle Ages. During battles, each knight would carry a pennant flag on their lance. Early designs of pennant flags consisted of a motto, crest, or some heraldic or ornamental designs. Pennant flags represented a particular knight and his men, a sign of rank, a warning to the enemy, or used in ceremonies. Pennant flags made it easier to differentiate between ships. Pennant flags are also used for sports teams or universities with the team name, motto, or mascot. Regardless of how their designs have evolved throughout history, they have always been a symbol of who you are or what you love to celebrate! Display your patriotism with this classic Patriotic Pennant Banner, comprised of denim, red and white stripes, and stars. Keep this strikingly beautiful and timeless item up for summertime celebrations or all year round. Hang this banner up on your mantel, front porch, entryway table, hutch, or bookshelf, or layer it on your tiered tray for a creative festive display!

This eagle was designed with the outdoors in mind, ready to be hammered in a tree, shed, porch post, or mailbox post.

To continue carrying the theme of stars and stripes from the American flag, these Decorative Star Blocks are a great versatile decor item that can be styled in many ways. Designed and made by hand in rural Texas, these star blocks add sparkle and shine anywhere! Each block was sanded, painted, hand-tied, and the stars were painted in metallic silver to add a glint of shine. Style them as signs on your tiered tray, centerpiece tray, or tablescape. In addition to displaying them as decorative signs, use them as napkin holders as part of a patriotic table setting, bookends, or risers to elevate a display. They were designed to be perfectly neutral to fit within any home decor style, but they can be painted too!
