This weekend kicks off the Memorial Day holiday weekend and here at The Teelie Blog, we’re super excited to share it with our families and friends. We also understand how daunting it is to plan a party and decorate our homes if we’re hosting a celebration, which is why we’ve curated some easy and fun Memorial Day themed home accessories for you. Before we dive in, however, check out some simple tips on how to decorate your home for any celebration.
- Use your windows! Windows not only bring light into your home, but can be the perfect frame for some decor such as tassels, buntings, and garlands. Hang them up on windows to highlight the entryway of light into your home.
- Dress the table. If you’re hosting a dinner party, spruce up your dining table with a tablecloth that follows your theme.
- Keep things organized. Use trays to corral items on your party table to avoid spills and scattered food. It will also make it easier to take things to and off the table.
- Decorate your entryway. Let your decor do the talking when your guests arrive. Set the mood the moment they step on your front porch for a celebration to remember.
- Get creative and get inspired! Look at Pinterest boards and magazines for inspiration on your favorite themes and party looks.
Now that you’re all set, check out these Memorial Day themed home accessories that you might want to add to your celebration this weekend.
