If you are anything like me, you are a last minute party planner. I envy the people that I see planning every detail to the T. Usually, I'm lucky if my house is clean and there is some good food.

Since today is Memorial Day, I wanted to share two quick ideas that can spruce up any party or BBQ.

Easy Patriotic Striped Strawberries 
These Strawberries were so fresh, and brightly colored! They'd make a great addition to any potluck table. They were also very easy and quick to make.

Patriotic Jar Lanterns
This was a project that I did with my little sister with recycled cans and jars. We ended up hanging them on my parent's porch with candles inside, and they looked so beautiful at night.
I hope this inspires you to create some easy, patriotic projects and recipes for your next get together!

On this Memorial Day, please take a minute or two to remember those who have given their lives in service for our country. It is so easy to get caught up in barbeques and the long weekend, that sometimes we might not remember as much as we ought to.


  1. Your lanterns are so cute. Still time to make those for 4th of July with the kiddos. Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Thank you! I made these a while ago, and I think I am going to make some more for this 4th of July. They were a big hit!


Comments make my day! Leave me some love :)
