Get your home ready to host a summer BBQ or sparkler party with these fun and festive ideas for decorating your porch.

A few years ago, we built this trellis at the end of the front walkway.

I love a bit of drama on the way to the front door, I prefer my drama to show up as decor, not teenage girl drama.

I decorated the trellis with a red, white and blue stripped table runner.

I hung it by wiring it to the trellis in the middle and near both ends, then I pulled the lower part of the runner to create a swag.

I tucked in two American flags to add yet more, dare I say, drama?
