Thursday’s Theme: Memorial Day

Thursday, May 21st, 2015

CC Image courtesy of Flickr user Jim BrickettMemorial Day decor is all about – you guessed it – Americana themes. As you acknowledge the sacrifices made by generations of Veterans during celebrations with your family and friends, surround yourself with all things red, white, and blue. Combine homemade decorations with statement decor for a full, spirited look around your home, and don’t be afraid to keep the more “permanent decor” in your house all year long; chances are those Americana-themed items will complement any room.

Here are a couple of simple ways to decorate for Memorial Day, and some ideas on how to incorporate the pride of the USA into your home all year long.

Flowers
Whether they are in the garden or inside your home, flowers offer versatile and simple options for decorating (no matter the occasion). For Memorial Day, choose flowers in the red, white, and blue color schemes for bright, patriotic spirit. Flowers like daisies, roses, and morning glories are great options, and check with a florist for others to create the optimal bouquet or arrangement. For more permanent decor, opt for faux arrangements in a wreath or garland – these require the lowest maintenance and you can put them on display whenever you are feeling floral, no matter the time of year.

Americana Pillows

Pillows
A staple in any home, a comfortable and decorative pillow can set or complement the mood of any room. Patriotic colors and symbols offer great Memorial Day style, as well as year-round style for any home. Mix and match with your personal favorites, or switch them out throughout the year for more seasonally-directed designs. 

Banners and PrintablesUSA Banner
Finally, it can be fun to create your own decoratives, and any handmade banners or decor can be used many times, or just once to give your yearly decorating some variety. You can make a USA banner or red, white, and blue emblem with simple craft supplies; use ribbon, paper, and a little sparkle to dress up any outdoor or indoor celebratory space. There are also a variety of printable decorations and imagery on blogs and in magazines that can be hung up or placed in picture frames to create a holistic patriotic theme throughout your home. If you would rather go the craft-store route and purchase already-made banners and posters, add a personal touch to it, like a sprinkle of glitter or star scrapbook stickers for ultimate style.
