4TH OF JULY DECORATING IDEAS

red white and blue

Ready Set . . . BOOM!

I know it is hard to believe that the July 4th holiday is almost here! I have been making so many red white and blue pinwheels and banners for my event planners already.  Whew! Thank goodness they know how to plan ahead!  If you are thinking of adding some red white and blue whirling fun PINWHEELS to your party from my pinwheel shop, PINWHEEL PRETTIES– keep in mind, TOMORROW (Tuesday, June 7th, 2016) is the deadline to order to receive custom made items from any of my Etsy shops in time! Yeppers! That’s how busy I am!

Although, I do also have a few sets of pinwheels ready to ship in my JULY 4TH section of my shop that can ship out as late as June 24th to add to your 4th of July event (be sure to read the full Item Details of each listing to confirm turnaround time and shipping) as my custom made to order items do have a longer production time.  I also offer many more red white and blue DECORATIONS in THE PARTY FETTI SHOP for the Fourth of July celebration that are ready to go too!

Don’t wait too long!  Visit any of my shops below to get ready for your patriotic celebration-

Memorial Day Celebration

MEMORIAL DAY CELEBRATION

dsc_5328-1

Memorial Day weekend is coming. Many will be traveling, enjoying the beginning of summer, taking a mini vacation, and spending time with family over the holiday.  This is always a holiday for gathering together and enjoying our friends and family but let’s not forget why we celebrate this holiday.  Memorial Day honors men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971.

So be sure to remember our fallen soldiers over the coming weekend for their ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

This weekend I will be honoring many Army soldiers at an event at Fort Riley but I am happy to announce that my husband will actually be returning home from his second and final active duty tour with the Army.  I will be spending a few days with him this week at Fort Riley where we will celebrate his 24 year service with the military and his retirement.  I will be so happy to have him home permanently.  It’s been a long five years without him, during his Army Jag training and then two tours almost back to back.  He has served his country dutifully and now he will return home safely.

So because I will be spending time with my Army solider and taking a mini vacation of my own, I will have a week or so of no posts here on the blog. So I will leave you with some red, white and blue barbecue and Memorial Day decorating inspiration until I return.  These are all perfect set ups for the coming 4th of July holiday as well.

All my Etsy shops below are still open as well, but please note that I will not return or be shipping anything until Wednesday, June 1st, 2016.

4th of July Mason Jars

4TH OF JULY MASON JARS AS UTENSIL HOLDERS

4th of July Mason Jars

Independence Day is several weeks away, but it is always one of those holidays that sneaks up on you.  A busy summer full of outdoor activities means that the holiday arrives before you can plan ahead for your 4th of July barbeque or family gathering.  This year I will be helping to remind you by posting several patriotic themed projects, crafts, and decorating ideas over the next few weeks to help you get ready.  Consider this your first reminder!

red-white-and-blue-mason-jars-1024x682

I love the idea of housing your plastic utensils or silverware for any party or barbeque in DIY decorated mason jars.

This project is so easy.  All you need is red, white and blue acrylic paint, a paintbrush, and some painter’s tape.

July 4th Mason Jars

You can paint the inside of each jar solid red, white and blue for an easy and quick version of this project! I like the dry sponge painting method for this idea – it gives the jars a more rustic look since you end up with more of a splotchy painted look.

However, to paint them to mimic the American Flag, paint one solid blue, let dry and freehand or use a stencil to paint white stars on top of your dried blue paint.  Next, for the other two mason jars, paint them solid white and let dry. Add painters tape in several straight lines or rows around your white jars and paint red stripes, to create your red and white stripes.
