Memorial Day Party Decor Ideas

Memorial Day is just around the corner but there is still plenty of time to order a few extras to add a festive touch to your party and you don't need to spend a fortune to do so.  We love the little mason jar sippers with red and blue striped straws.  Glass bowls filled with red, white and blue jelly belly and m & m candies are fun, easy and inexpensive.  Good looking paper plates and napkins are always essential.  Throw a few small vases filled with swirl pops and patriotic pretzels around the room intermixed with this simple fresh flower arrangement (ok – we admit, no matter how great our decor, it never seems quite complete unless we have at least one vase of fresh flowers). Patriotic cupcake kits make yummy cupcakes taste even better. How fun would it be to send your guests home with individual bottles of “Hot & Proud” hot sauce which also add a bit of sass to your table settings.  And finally, red and blue ribbons remind us of the meaning of Memorial Day.

Party Hearty!

Celebrate the 4th with a Taste of Americana from See's

Whenever we travel we always give ourselves 5 extra minutes at the airport to pick up a box or two or three of See's Candies to have on hand as little gifts of thanks as we visit friends and family.  So we were particularly excited when we received word that  See's is having a sale just in time for 4th of July celebrations.

Treat your friends, family and patriotic party guests to a star-spangled spread of summertime treats or try See's campfire favorite Marshmallow treats, a summertime sweet you don't want to miss!

4th of July Party Decor | Paper Lanterns

Hotdog (and hamburgers)! It's once again time to start shopping for your Fourth of July party supplies!

As you can tell, we love to use paper lanterns to fill in the space and set the mood for the entire party.  In the photo we used these fabulous Americana lanterns although we just checked and there are only 2 left in stock (6.15.14).

Additionally, one of our go to paper lantern stores, aptly named, The Paper Lantern Store, is running a few great 4th of July promotions:
