Day for Memories

Memorial Day is around the corner!  Many decorations for Memorial Day can be reused for the Fourth of July, Labor day, Presidents Day or most national holidays.  Because of their universal appeal, we can explore some more versatile approaches to PartyFetti supplies and decorations.

Banners and Bunting, or garland, are quite universal and can be used for many types of decorations.  Imagine them floating down from the ceiling or spanning across a room.  They can add color and a festive feeling to any decor, alone or with other pieces!

Pinwheels and Rosettes

1 7

I have to say, Pinwheels and Rosettes are my favorite at the moment, and have been for quite some time!  They are unbelievably universal.  Their classy and whimsical style works for parties, formal gatherings, special events, every day decoration and more.  Stick a pinwheel in a flower pot, turn them into a banner or a wreath, combine them with rosettes for a beautiful display, decorate a photo booth or window and more!
