SPECIAL SAUCE: OUR RECIPE FOR RAVING FANS

May 22 4 minutes read

Memorial Day is almost here, and most of you are ecstatic to celebrate this special day with friends and family amidst the beautiful outdoors, or with a party at home!

While the prospect of getting together and eating the OG Memorial Day spread may be more than enough for some, if you’re looking to go the extra mile, it’s time to put out those art materials and your thinking hat, and get crafty up in here!

Create a festive Memorial Day celebration for your family and guests and dress your home up for the occasion! Here are nine Memorial Day Decor Ideas for your home—



A red-and-white or a blue-and-white gingham tablecloth is a must.

Whether you're planning an indoor or outdoor Memorial Day event, a gingham tablecloth (also known as buffalo check or plaid) provides the perfect vibrantly casual aesthetic for your table setting.





Display Fabric Wreaths

Wreaths aren't limited to the front door. Instead, use a small nail or Command hook to attach a pair of red, white, and blue wreaths to the exterior of your home. This style is appropriate for summer porch decor until the Fourth of July, but it may also be used on your back deck to create the tone for a Memorial Day BBQ.

 





Surprise your visitors with a red and white floral arrangement.

Set up magnificent red and white flower arrangements in blue pots or vases to greet your guests in a vivid and happy manner without being over the top! Long after the celebration weekend is over, you can scatter these pot arrangements around your landscape or around your porch.





Red, White, And Blue To The Porch

Give your porch seating area a Memorial Day makeover with red, white, and blue decor. Consider throw pillows, an outside rug, and bright lanterns. When it's time to organize a long-weekend get-together, complement the decor with serving ware in the same colors.





Colorful garlands bring a cheerful touch.

Make beautiful garlands out of anything you like, such as little red apples, paper triangles, and so on, to visually frame your table without spending a fortune! Garlands, in fact, are a cheery way of expressing, "Hey! It's a celebration!" Your guests will undoubtedly enjoy these!





Vintage Lanterns for the Porch

For several reasons, retro-inspired gas lamps are a must-have for summer decoration. For one thing, they bring back memories of summer sleepaway camp and family camping trips to the state park. Furthermore, they come in a variety of classic colors that will complement any outdoor decoration plan. Of course, lighting up your outdoor gathering at night will only add to the atmosphere.





Delicious dishes should also be visually appealing!

Not interested in becoming involved in arts & crafts? Instead, let your food do the talking! This weekend, use red from wonderful strawberries or tomatoes, white from creams or slices of bread, and blue from blueberries or m&ms to make delectable masterpieces. Impress your visitors and leave them wanting more!





Keep the theme going with your throw pillows.  

Buy some red, white, and blue pillow covers and impart a joyful Memorial Day weekend atmosphere to your friends and family alike by purchasing some red, white, and blue pillow covers.





The flags are essential

The little American flags about your home are the ultimate emblem of Memorial Day, so having them as your home decor for the party is unavoidable! Buy or manufacture them in a variety of sizes, and hang them anytime and everywhere!
