While summer is right around the corner, it hasn’t felt like it much in New England lately. We’ve had a cold and rainy spring. I’m very much looking forward to warmer weather and time spent at our Camp!

I’m so excited to be sharing today as part of the Seasonal Simplicity tour with April at House by Hoff and Krista at the Happy Housie!

I have always wanted to do a Patriotic styled shoot. While I admit that my vision was for outdoors, unfortunately, I don’t yet have an outdoor dining area. 

It’s honestly at the bottom of my wishlist, due to the previously mentioned wet and cold weather we are prone to.

For now, this inspiration gives you some ideas for summer whether you are indoors or out.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

    Hurrah for the red, white, and blue… outside or inside! I associate patriotic decor with New England. Of course, every part of the country celebrates with red, white, and blue, but I loved visiting my sister when she lived in New Hampshire and Maine during the summer. I pinned to my Pinterest board, Patriotic, and to my group board, Round Up of Blog Tours. Loving all of the homes on this tour…

    Nina so charming and I love the red, white and blue. I’m in NY and the weather has not been cooperating here either. Cheers to some warmer summer days ahead.
