5 Simple Memorial Day Weekend Decorations

Memorial Day weekend is here, which means it’s time to fire up the grill and get prepped for all the family and friends coming in town! If you’ve been asked to host this years BBQ and long weekend extravaganza, your head may be filled with ideas on food and accommodating everyone in your home and decorating becomes one of the last things on your mind! We’ve gathered a few simple ideas to add the perfect patriotic touch to your Memorial Day Weekend.

Simple centerpieces

Crafting simple centerpieces is an easy way to decorate for the long weekend! Grab a mason jar, white daisies, and a few small American flags and you have yourself a cute flower arrangement!

Patriotic-themed food & dessert

Creating Memorial Weekend-themed foods adds some fun to your food! Desserts and snacks are the easiest items to do this with – strawberries, blueberries, and whipped cream for snacking have the perfect touch of color.

Making the most of your utensils

Add some flare to your dinnerware with a red, white, and blue touch. These colorful bandana napkins are a cute (and useful) touch to the BBQ! Plates are also an easy way to add a decorative touch, and there are a lot of options!

Front door decorations and wreaths

Another popular option is wreaths! A patriotic wreath is perfect because you can use it again on Independence Day and other occasions.

Creative chalkboard signs

These signs are fun to have on hand for all occasions, because you can always change what’s written on them! Find someone with good handwriting and craft a cute message on a board, and you now have a cute, decorative piece.

These simple ideas take the stress out of decorations, so you can focus on having fun and enjoying the delicious food! Be sure to document the weekend and backup your favorite moments using Picture Keeper Connect.
