Patriotic decorations make Memorial Day festivities fun. Whether watching fireworks on the front lawn of the home or having an outdoor Memorial Day picnic, Memorial Day decor enhances the celebration.
Memorial Day is the federal holiday remembering men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Because of its ties to American pride, it’s great to have tons of red, white, and blue decorations and food for the Memorial Day party.
Memorial Day Food
For a simple snack, make red, white, and blue fruit salad. Use blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, and watermelon slices in a bowl topped with whipped cream. This treat is perfect for any summer Memorial Day picnic and healthy, too.
If you’re looking to quench your thirst, try mixing refreshing Memorial Day drinks. Mix fruit punch together with a blue Gatorade and add ice on top. The liquid with the highest sugar content will stay towards the bottom and create a great red, white, and blue effect that will have guests salivating.
Decorate for the party using small flags in vases. If you have children, you can create Memorial Day decorations with crafts. Using coffee filters, paint a red circle in the middle and a blue ring on the outside or vice versa to create American flag bunting. Hang these painted coffee filters with tape on the edge of a table for a cute decoration that involves the whole family.
Another way to decorate is with Patriotic lights. Find light strings of red, white, and blue, and hang on the roofline, along fence lines, and on mantle places. Hang them indoors or out to show your pride. Patriotic flags made of rope light are also available and light up the night with their size and beauty.
This decor can also be used throughout the summer to Independence Day as 4th of July decorations. Patriotic decorations just help to show off American spirit as the red, white, and blue inspires everyone to remember the true meaning of freedom.
