In this post: Looking for patriotic decor to celebrate summer’s American holidays? Try these ideas for Memorial Day decorations or for 4th of July decorations too.⇒
A few weeks ago it was Mother’s Day and I was determined to celebrate, pandemic be damned. I set a pretty table using my vintage china, mixing and matching as is my favorite way to set a table. It was a very low key tablescape as we were only three people, but it felt SO good to give the day the attention it deserved and to put in the extra effort that makes an occasion special.
I resolved that day to do the same at least once a month.
I’m a firm believer that rituals at home can be elevated to create pleasure in your life and I approach all the small things in much the same way. We keep our toothbrushes in a pair of cut crystal bud vases, store utensils next to the stove in a silver champagne bucket and use a porcelain letter holder to corral loose papers in the office. Pretty much every opportunity I can take to upgrade one of these common routines I see as a chance to make everyday life that much more wonderful.
As Memorial Day approaches and with Fourth of July not far behind it, many of us will still be sheltering in place, while others will be cautiously reopening and social distancing all the same. These holidays will be different for us than they’ve been all these years.
Yet with care and attention you can still honor the day with an appropriate celebration that these events warrant. At the very least you can decorate your own little space with patriotic decor that’s as festive as you care to make it.
I tend to lean “elegant” whenever there is an option and I’m sharing a red, white and blue champagne brunch tablescape for today’s patriotic decor blog-hop. Be sure to visit the other bloggers’ posts, as well, as I think they will inspire you to make a memorable holiday!
