When I think of summer, I instantly think of red, white, blue, and baseball. So as soon as memorial day hits, I love incorporating those things into our home. I thought I'd share our home for summer...
Everything is old and things I've collected over the years. I fill our home to the max at Christmas time but the rest of the year, I like to change out a few things. It's usually very simple and not much stuff.
I change out the chalkboard seasonally and a baseball saying seemed fitting.
I love seasonal napkins so I put some on the table to grab.
I also set out the baseball park book. I love this book, it has all the different ballparks. It tells the history of them and it's a friendly reminder just how many parks we have left to visit.
I realize that I don't have any of our summer / patriotic books out in the basket yet.
The kitchen is very simple. A few seasonal kitchen towels, flags, and my tiered stand to call it good.
I find that I am more productive with less stuff and more counter space...
I also added my very favorite plate that the boys made several years ago. It's broke, I've glued it back together, and I still love pulling it out every year.
I would still love to find a red, white, and blue throw blanket and I'm always on the hunt for seasonal books. Patriotic decorations just makes me so happy!
