Fun & Festive Ideas for Memorial Day!

Happy Friday, friends!

Well it’s Memorial Day Weekend – the unofficial kick-off to the summer!! I’ll be heading to the Cape tomorrow morning and hopefully soaking in the sun at the beach {fingers crossed that it warms up!} and then just hanging-out with family & friends.  Gotta love a low-key weekend. :)

So whether you’re relaxing at home, chillin’ at the beach or Beer-B-Q’ing with friends, here are some fun & festive ideas for your Memorial Day Weekend:

Start your morning off with these Colorful Pancakes

Gotta love Festive Straws from Etsy!

It’s probably too late to order these straws for Memorial Day weekend…  but thankfully you can use all of these red, white & blue ideas for your 4th of July festivities as well!  

Have a great long weekend!
