Do you love Americana & Patriotic summer decor? Let me show you some simple vintage Americana porch and table ideas for your next gathering.

Today, I am excited to be joining 8 very talented bloggers in sharing our Patriotic and Americana decor with you, hosted by Pasha from Pasha is Home.

If you are joining me from Kristin over at White Arrows Home, welcome! I am just so in love with Kristin’s log cabin on that amazing lake in Wisconsin. Just wow. We are also thrifting buddies with “Thrifting with the Gals“!

Newly Renovated Porch

Last summer, we renovated our porch here at our home in Vermont. Replacing some large support beams and columns, along with sanding and refinishing the Red Balau floors.

The porch here in Vermont is the heart of our home, and we spend all our outdoor time overlooking the views of the beautiful Green Mountains. You can see more of the views in the post, Our Year-Round Vermont Mountain Views.

I’ve been so excited to decorate the porch this summer for the Patriotic holidays now that everything is finished. We first set the tone in this first post, How To Create An Inviting Front Porch with Wicker Furniture, where you’ll see this porch in early spring’s snow.

A Vintage Haul for The Porch helped us fill in a few much-needed items.

Then we felt ready for Spring and shared Cozy Antique Spring Porch Ideas.

Memorial Day Weekend Vintage Table Ideas

Now that Memorial Day is upon us, it’s time to think about simple Americana and Patriotic decorating ideas.

I’m all about keeping things simple. Our weather can change on a dime here in Vermont, so it’s important for us to stay flexible. Unexpected high winds could wipe out an outdoor table setting of ours very easily and quickly!

A Vintage Wallpaper Table

One of my favorite thrift porch finds last year was this Favorite Second Hand Wallpaper Table. I recently refinished it and shared all about it here on How to Refinish a Wood Table in Less Than 1 Hour.

Here are a few table settings that I have made on it that you may also enjoy.

It is the foundation for today’s Americana-style outdoor table. I highly recommend them for a unique and different look if you love vintage as we do.

A McCoy Centerpiece

I found this yellow McCoy vase at a barn sale recently and filled it with blooming lilacs, which now sits as the centerpiece for our Americana-inspired table.

Simply add a USA flag from The Dollar Tree Store.

And these lavender goblets that I found thrifting last summer fit beautifully with this Patriotic theme.

Vintage Lemonade Set

First I found this cute vintage side table while out “Thrifting with the Gals,” and the top comes off, which allows it to be used as a serving tray.

And on This Vintage Haul for The Porch, I picked up a vintage lemonade set for just $18, too.

Vintage Dishwares

Mixed vintage dishware is one of my favorite things to collect.

I can’t resist a set when I find it selling for under $50, like this gorgeous blue and white antique set that I found at Vintage Market Days Vermont Fall Haul.

And here I paired them with .50 cents green dishes I found at our local thrift shop. I’ve really been crushing on the combination of blues and greens together this year.

Place setting

These green glass dishes I picked up at The Vintage Soul for a couple of dollars.

A shop where I display vintage treasures in the window to resell, should you ever find yourself shopping locally.

Green Dishes

Join me for breakfast on the porch…

For morning breakfast, I changed out the purple goblets for thrifted blue glass coffee mugs and enjoyed strawberries and blueberries with my mother’s sterling silverware.

Antique Candlesticks

Brass candlesticks always seem to add such a beautiful ambiance to a table.

I bought a collection of them a few years back, and I use them throughout my decor.

Check out this Salvaged Windows & Brass Candlestick Project too.

Every day on the porch can’t be beautiful, unfortunately.

And the candles added warmth and charm on this rainy day on the porch captured here.

A Grapevine Wreath

Formed as a peace sign I found out thrifting works well for many holidays from Patriotic to Christmas.

Here I draped an old flag through it for the Memorial Day weekend.
