Memorial Day Table

Can you believe that it’s already Memorial Day? I don’t normally decorate for Memorial Day as we aren’t usually at home, however this year we will be.  I decorated the back porch  for Memorial Day. So I thought that surely I could throw together a last minute Memorial Day front porch!

Dollar Tree metal star stakes

I found these cute metal star stakes at the Dollar Tree and knew that I wanted to add them to my planters.

Once those were in, I added a couple of American flags and my planters were good to  go.

Unfortunately, I don’t have a patriotic themed charm for my home sign.

I did, however, have this charm that lets you add a picture.

So I did a quick drawing of some fireworks and stars.

It works for this year, but I will be sure to keep an eye out for the perfect one for next year!

Last minute memorial day door bucket

Next up, something for the door!

My old wreath had seen better days, so I really had nothing to put here.

I didn’t want to spend the time shopping or the money for something last minute that I might not like.

I’ve  had this white door bucket for a long time.

With a little digging in the patriotic bucket of decor I found some red geraniums and some white hydrangeas.

I added in a few fun red, white and blue sparkle picks, an American flag and a fun Pinwheel and my door bucket was complete.

Not bad for a five minute project!

Last minte Memorial Day Front Porch

My last minute Memorial Day front porch turned out pretty cute.

I love that I spent a total of $6.00 on the entire front porch and it took me less than an hour to put together.

That’s a big win in my book.

I was surprised, but I have really enjoyed decorating for a holiday that I normally would just pass over in the decor department.

So much so, that I feel that I may have created a monster.

I’m already planning what I can decorate with next year!

Until next time…..

  1. And really nice if you don’t want the expense of a big flag in front of your house👏👏👏

    1. Yay! Glad I could be of service. Next time it’s your turn to remind me. How that you have a great Memorial Day weekend. AND let’s pray for no rain, although I have a feeling that we are going to get it anyway.
