Happy Memorial Day!

I love decorating for each season and holiday, so I decided to get a little festive for Memorial Day.  I can reuse these decorations for the 4th of July too. 

The mantle.  I found these red, white, and blue carnations at Michael's.  I tied some red and blue ribbon around my coffee bean jars.  I bought some painted wood embellishments shaped like flags and stars but I think I accidentally threw them away with the Michael's bag. :(

I arranged these little plastic gold and silver stars on the top of the mantle.  They give it a kind of nautical look.

I found these cute luminary buckets at Target in the dollar spot.

We are getting ready to cookout and enjoy the day together as a family.  I love spending time in our backyard, splashing around in the pool and sprinklers, and just being together.  Casey is a master on the grill so anything he makes always turns out delicious. 

I always get really emotional thinking about the brave men and women who laid their lives on the line to keep our country free.  I have the utmost respect for all of those in the military and their families. 

Hope you are enjoying your day!!
