Memorial Day Pin-spiration

I love Memorial Day. It means summer is pretty much here, and although that means that I will soon have three boys at home all day, every day {Summer Fun List, I need to get started on you!}, it also means baseball, swimming, water fights, dinner on the deck, fireflies, outdoor movies on the inflatable screen and beers on the patio. {Anyone else have Summer, (Where Do We Begin?) by Phineas and Ferb in their head? No? … um, yeah… me either.}

I don’t usually decorate a whole lot or do a whole lot of themed food for Memorial Day, but I found some great Memorial Day inspiration on Pinterest. Here are some of my favorites. {And check out my Memorial Day/4th of July board for even more ideas!}

How cute is this breakfast from Mom on Timeout? I want to have this every morning, it’s so pretty and delicious looking!

Oh, Glory. Glory, Glory, Glory, I want to be you. Or your best friend, or your sister, or someone else you make stuff for all the time. Because I can’t put into words how much I love not only these mini cheesecake trifles, but pretty much everything you make.

Sangria? Um, ok! Red, white and blue sangria with pineapple stars?!? Double ok! Would it be bad to drink this right now, this second? {Can I pretend that it’s a Saturday evening and not a Tuesday morning at 10:00 a.m.?}

I made these flag blocks for the 4th of July last year, and they could not have been easier or cuter. It’s fun to make something that takes 20 minutes but gets you a ton of compliments!

These star-shaped fruit pops are just the cutest — they look like little patriotic fairy wands!

I realize that these raspberry cheesecake popsicles don’t have blue in them, but they are beautiful and look delicious. Stick them on a blue plate and stop being so picky, would ya?

These star-shaped cookies use refrigerated dough, so you can whip them up in no time!


One day I want to learn to make felt balls so that I can make ridiculously cute felt ball garlands like this one from Etsy seller The Fickle Felt Tree.

So there you have it, peeps. Some pin-spiration for you for Memorial Day. Hope everyone has a wonderfully happy, safe, and fun holiday!!
