Get Ready for Memorial Day With These Festive Finds

Memorial Day is just around the corner, and it’s time to fire up the grill, dust off the patio furniture, and get ready for summer. I shared this post on how to refresh your outdoor living space with everything you could need. But, I know that many of you like to add some patriotic seasonal decorations around your home and outdoor spaces for the summer. I love that you can buy it once and instantly have three occasions to use it: Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day. From colorful bunting and festive flags to red, white, and blue themed table settings, here is everything you may need to get ready for the upcoming long holiday weekends.

Memorial Day Finds from Amazon

1. Vintage Inspired Cooler

While I don’t own this, I definitely am thinking about adding it!! The vintage-inspired design would look great in our outdoor space and make it easy for everyone to get drinks when they are over.

2. Patriotic Pillows

I love that these pillows incorporate red, white, and blue in a more subtle way than screaming it in your face. Put them out now for Memorial Day and use them into the fall! There are more colors available in case these don’t match your decor.

3. Utility Tote

Now, if you’re headed out somewhere for the holiday weekend, this utility tote makes it easy to carry everything. Forget having a million bags in the back of your car to bring in. I would just leave this in the back of my car all summer. You could keep it packed with towels, sunscreen, and snacks for a day at the pool, or fill it with everything you need for a backyard bbq at a loved one’s house.

4. Blockprint Napkin Set

At my house, I love an easy clean-up situation when lots of people are over so paper napkins are ideal. But, if you’re looking to set a nice dinner table over the long weekend, I think that this napkin set is pretty cute. You could easily use the blues all summer long, and pair them with a variety of tablecloths.

5. Bamboo Food Covered Tent

If I’ve had issues once, I’ve had them a million times trying to keep bugs off of the food, even inside if the doors are open. I think I’m finally going to have to buy one of these to try! Joe always says, “they have to eat too,” but they can find something else besides my food.

6. Red, White & Blue Wax Flameless Candles

How fun are these candles?! You can either pop them in a hurricane or leave them on their own. I love that they are remote-operated and not going to blow out with the wind. These come in several colors, so I might have to grab another set for the screened-in porch.

7. Red Gingham Plastic Tablecloth Roll 

Again, I love an easy clean-up when having people over, especially the grandkids, and this roll of plastic tablecloths would make my life so much easier. Plus, I love that you can make it whatever length you need. It would come in handy to have at a park, pool, or the lake when you need to clean the tables off.

8. Cornhole Game

I love cornhole or bags (whatever you want to call it!!) It’s a game that everyone in the family can enjoy and play together–after all, who doesn’t love a little friendly competition?

9. American Flag Bunting

If you want to go all out, I see a lot of people use this bunting on golf carts, front porches, and even tables to decorate with during the patriotic holidays. This is one of those things you can buy once and reuse every year.

10. Set of 4 Enamelware Plates

If you’re not a paper plate fan, set a festive table with these adorable speckled plates. Having a non-glass plate option makes it easier, especially with guests, to eat without worrying about accidentally dropping your plate.

How do you decorate for Memorial Day? Do you have any fun plans for the long weekend?

I’ve included quite a few more patriotic finds in the widget below, but I’d love to hear what else I should add to the list!

    I LOVE your posts❤️ However today as Jimmy’s mother and as his Gold Star Mother I am asking you to please help everyone understand that Memorial Day is much more than just a long 3 day celebration. Please ask everyone to NOT wish everyone a Happy Memorial Day. Memorial Day is a day to honor and remember those who have served in the military and paid the ultimate price. They gave their lives in service for our great country.
    For some of us, every day is our Memorial Day.

  15. Love the tablecloths! I am having a champagne tasting over Memorial Day weekend with friends. Last year we did a wine tasting. I did some research online, broke out the china and paired cheeses and chocolates. We had such a good time we are doing champagne this year.
