Embrace Memorial Day with unique decorations

by webdev

Memorial Day weekend is almost here and that means it's time for families to start taking out the bright and cheery spring and summer patio furniture. From wicker tables and chairs to gliders and even a fire pit, this is the weekend to announce its time to have fun in the sun!

Aside from setting up, you may also want to decorate your outdoor space with a few patriotic accessories to show your support for the men and women currently serving in the military branches and to honor those who have lost their lives fighting for freedom.

A great activity to involve the kids in is making a festive Memorial Day Felt Star Wreath. Start by picking up a styrofoam wreath and red felt at your local craft store. Then, make a star template and have the kids cut out the stars - you'll need a lot to cover the entire wreath. When you have enough, use quilt pins to attach them to the wreath. Finish off by attaching a navy ribbon with stars on it for hanging, and voila! Your work of art is complete. 

Another way to get in the spirit for this holiday is to decorate your home with Memorial Day flowers. A bouquet like Sweet Liberty by Teleflora is sure to enhance the patriotic vibes in your home. This arrangement of fresh flowers including white alstroemeria, red roses and red carnations is a perfect addition to any home's decor. The delivered flowers come in a pleasant blue pedestal bowl that completes the theme.
