First, I must begin by saying thank you. Thank you to the men and women who have given their lives in order for us to have and continue our current lifestyle. Thank you to the families of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedoms. Stu and I know, and we are teaching our children that freedom is never free.
I've shared our crazy, busy, jam-packed weekend fun in Our Memorial Day 2017 Recap.
This post is dedicated to hosting a party with a red, white & blue Americana theme.
Red, White and Blue
One thing I love about hosting a Memorial Day shindig is the chance to reuse a lot of the decor on the 4th of July. And then perhaps again in November for Veteran's Day.
I did not host this party. My mom did. And these decorations (unfortunately) belong to her.
A Sweet Treat
I made these a few days prior to Memorial Day. I saw them on Pinterest and thought they looked easy and delicious. They were, but they are also pretty messy. I am going to mess around with the filling before the 4th of July. I plan on serving these at our house. Of course, I will share my findings with you.
But for these, all you need is:
A Sweater Treat
No meal (or holiday feast) would be complete without cake! Duh.
Since Riley is allergic to eggs, he helped Grammie make a special egg-free cake. He watched her during the entire baking process - just to make sure. And then he and Grandpa put the M&Ms on in a flag pattern.
Don't forget your cute American outfits and t-shirts.
That's it for now. As I said earlier, I'll let you know if I come up with a better filling for the strawberries.
See you for the 4th!
There is little I like more than a holiday! Something about the energy of the day makes me giddy.
