Patriotic Porch

Short on time and short on money (story of my life - LOL!) I came up with a few quick projects to add some patriotic pizazz to my "Plain Jane" porch.  I started with this simple fabric banner (I didn't even finish the edges of the pennants -- just used pinking shears -- gasp!)
 For the table, I found this tablecloth at the thrift for 1.00 and the little patriotic teapot for 2.00! 
A scrap of left over fabric from the banner adds a little interest (also just used pinking shears on the edges).
 
With the addition of a few peonies and ferns from my garden, I'm ready for the holiday.  I hope everyone has a beautiful Memorial Day spent with family, friends or just relaxing!
