Happy early Memorial Day!
This weekend signifies the beginning of summer. Pools are opening, families are gathering, kids are out of school (or almost are), barbecues are firing up and flowers are planted. Once the memorials are visited and decorated, it’s time to get together and make some memories in honor of those who have fallen to provide us the privilege to do so. Let’s thank our military members and their families who gave the ultimate sacrifice, celebrate life and remember what they fought so hard for.
PartyFetti and PinwheelPretties have several red, white and blue decorations that I have already highlighted, and added a few more. It’s too late to get your orders in for Memorial Day, so let’s look at some last minute craft ideas to decorate for the festivities!
Bleach pens are a great way to jazz up your cloth pieces. Try it out on napkins, tablecloths, t-shirts and more!
Butcher or Parchment paper cones are a simple and cheap way to display anything from fruit to snack mix.
For larger containers, cut and decorate simple paper plates and tie together with twine or ribbon. These would be great for toppings and smaller snacks.
Decorative lunch sacks! Why didn’t I think of that?! This is a good idea for popcorn, favor bags, snack mix, all sorts of dry goods and fun stuff.
Bandanas, napkins or cloth in a mason jar (or cup) with silverware – what a simple way to supply necessary items in a decorative way. Perfect for all events. A must remember!
Mark this on as another “why didn’t I think of that”! How simple is this cupcake topper? Ribbons and toothpicks – easy!
This Rocket Garland is dual purpose. Not only is it an awesome decoration, but it’s also a fun activity! The diagram shows you how to turn a simple toilet paper or paper towel roll into an excellent party supply. For those of you who want to make these for another event, PartyFetti has Rocket Bunting that you can rig as poppers, check them out here.
Paint, markers or watercolors are another simple way to dress up basic party supplies or make decorations. Use your imagination!
