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.
Patriotic Berry Trifle by Sunny Anderson from the Food Network
This just looks like a delicious cold treat.
Red, White, and Blue Sangria from Punchbowl.com
I love that they made the fruit into a star shape.

Vintage Memorial Day BBQ from The Art Abyss
I am loving this! The link gives you step by step instructions of how they made everything. Don’t you just want to take a seat?
Vintage Patriotic Decor from The Golden Sycamore
I would LOVE to have this in my house. So cute!
Free Patriotic Printables from My Fabuless Life
You all know I love a free printable! And this one is perfect.
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!
