5 on Friday: Red, White & Blue

I know that Summer doesn't technically start Memorial Day weekend, but I used to feel like I did. That has definitely changed since we moved. The move was only 150 miles north, but it stays a lot cooler for longer. It may not feel like summer yet, but I still think Memorial Day gives me permission to start some patriotic decorating. Plus I am embracing a new theory that I can decorate with red, white and blue from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Good idea, right? Or is going past July too much? I'm still up in the air. Let me know what you think. 
I haven't been decorating for Summer too much before, but I have been pinning away this year. Here are a few of my favorite red, white and blue pins. 


I love that print at the top. It's small, but it can still add a little something. And the 4th of July Sangria? Yes, please.

  1. I think you can decorate with red white and blue anytime but I agree on the Summer- I plant red, white and blue flowers in they yard and they bloom all summer- the more patriotic the better- just found your blog- new follower here!

    1. I feel the same way about patriotic decor. All year is completely acceptable and there are some great ways to do it without it being too holiday-ish. Unfortunately, my house is a lot of neutrals, so I just have to stick with summer for now. Thanks for following!

  2. I love the pallet wood flag! We have a neighbor who has one in their yard and it looks great.

    1. I always want to do pallet projects, but never do. This one is the simplest so far. Now I just need to follow through. :)
