I’m always on the lookout for new party ideas, and as Memorial Day weekend festivities approach, I’ve been scouring the internet for fun, unique ideas to share with you… I’m excited to tell you that I think you will . I love some of the ideas I found in Her Royal Heinous, Queen Bee by Alm Chandler and Emily by Magnolia Creative. So cute and patriotic! !

Colorful tin buckets double and triple as place settings, card holders and party favors. It’s easy to make something so simple look so festive just by adding some colorful ribbons, labels, and an American flag.

I love that they keep traditional food…hot dogs, chips, cookies, cupcakes and cherry pie! Salute…so American! ! ! Wrapped in colorful ribbons and tied with twine, these hot dogs are so cute and festive…every detail has been thought out.

To make this cute and highly creative apple wreath, they bought apples (not real apples) at a local hobby store, threading yarn through them, and adding ribbon decoration at the end. I like this idea.

Thanks for the great Memorial Day inspiration! ! ! If you don’t have a Memorial Day party, consider hosting it on July 4th or another patriotic event.
