Memorial Day Pinsperation

Hey mamas,

Memorial Day is this Monday.  It’s a day to remember all the fallen service men and women that have bravely protected our country.  It’s also a day off of work (for most) and a day of BBQs.  For a very patriotic girl who cries at fire works, God Bless America, and the National Anthem, this holiday is a great excuse to get down with the red, white, and blue.  Here’s a roundup of my favorite patriotic pins I’m loving right now.

You can follow my Patriotic Holidays board for more inspiration.  Or find all my boards and pins here.  Enjoy!

Plant some patriotic flowers

I just did this yesterday!  I put all three colors in one pot.  But this is an adorable idea.  Just paint your pots and mix and patch the pot color with the flower color.  Cheap and cheerful decor.  After talking to my mom (the green thumb and my personal plant and garden expert) I used red salvia, white vinca, and blue sapphire lobelias.

A special thank you to all the brave service men and women we will remember on Monday, those still fighting for our country, and all the veterans like my dad.  Thanks for protecting our freedom.  I hope you all have a fun, safe, and patriotic long weekend!

XOXO
