Handmade Memorial Day


Memorial Day is coming up fast and whether you are throwing a backyard barbecue, traveling, or simply honoring family, friends, soldiers, and other loved ones, you can find handmade items to help make your Memorial Day special.

If you are having a party to celebrate Memorial Day and welcome the summer season, there are great, creative handmade solutions to help top off your festivities. How about these fun paper flowers from Tru Luxe? They would look gorgeous hanging above a table full of food and will look fresh and beautiful even after your party guests have gone home.


I mentioned a table full of food, didn’t I? And we all know that you can’t have a table full of food without something sweet. These Itty Bitty Bites from The Fetching Hound are sure to have your guests reaching for more and rubbing their tummies with delight.


While we’re celebrating, we should pause to give thanks for those men and women who have served and continue to serve defending our nation. This envelope quilt wallhanging from Fashions By Me is a great way to show your patriotism off in style.


Another great red, white, and blue item is this wonderful pearl bracelet from Little Diddle Boutique. The bracelet comes in both adult and child’s sizes and makes a wonderful Memorial Day gift.


The spirit of Memorial Day is one of honoring our loved ones and holding on to our memories. One of the best ways to remember is with this canvas picture frame from I’m Not Spoiled Designs. It serves as a pretty reminder to live in the moment and be grateful for all the people in our lives.


And, of course, Memorial Day is a three day weekend, a perfect time to go out of town and visit friends and family, or take a trip. If you’re going away this Memorial Day, pick up a cute weekend bag, like this one from Gypsy Rose Handbags. This bag is sure to hold all of your goodies and help you look good at the same time!


I hope that you all have a wonderful Memorial Day! Join me next week when we focus on getting ourselves organized for the spring and summer months ahead.
