Looking for Patriotic Site Decoration ideas

We like to keep with the patriotic theme for our camp site. Somehow we even won a site decorating contest even using the cheap plastic stuff (plastic flag banners, windsock, flags on sticks). Our ladder ball is home made and red, white and blue as well. Looking for some higher-quality items (maybe more rustic looking).

Inspire me!!! Show me some of your site photos! :-)

I'm going to ruffle some feathers here, but the design of the flag on anything other than the flag, or a button, lapel pin worn by a person who has a family member in the armed forces, or a patch worn by a member of the armed forces, police or fire department is in violation of the U.S Flag Code.

Have known that for years, and have never heard of anyone ever enforcing that code.

Will take my chances. Then again, two tours in Vietnam make me deplorable. LOL

Not to semi-change the subject but, we always fly the American Flag at our campsite (except in really windy conditions). When I was a kid camping with my parents 50 years ago, I recall almost everybody flying the flag at their sites. Today, I find it a real shame that I only see 1 in 25 or 30 sites flying the American Flag. It is such a shame! Congrats on your Patriotic Site!

Thank you! My husband and I believe we shouldn't save patriotism solely for Memorial Day, Veterans Day and Independence Day. We're patriotic all year :-) as it should be!
