In the blink of an eye, summer will be in full swing with hot days splashing at the pool, fun family camping trips, and lots of great memories. Before we get there, we get to celebrate a special day reserved for remembering those who have bravely served our country in the military on Memorial Day, May 25th. 

This year things look a little different. With many states around the US still in various stages of “safer at home” orders, we might not be doing as many Memorial Day activities with family and friends as we would like. That doesn’t have to stop us from getting into the patriotic spirit and decorating our homes with the glorious red, white, and blue! Here are 5 freedom-loving decor ideas for the end of May. 

#1. Welcome Home American Flag Decorative Wood Sign

#2. Plant Some Red, White, And Blue Flowers

Plant your favorite red, white, and blue flowers in colored pots and decorate them with a small American flag. Potted plants look country chic in a wash bin painted white, like the one in our photo! Use the flowers for a pop of color on your front porch to delight the neighbors. 

#3. Decorate The Lawn With Painted White Stars
