3. Add patriotic bunting to the front of your home.

I’ve always loved the down-home touch that red, white, and blue flag bunting adds to a home. I usually hang our bunting from a couple of window sills. Whether hung from a window sill or across the railing of your deck or front porch, greet your neighbors and guests with a festive display!
