Memorial Day and the Start of BBQ's and Picnics

For me, Memorial Day weekend has always marked the beginning of the outdoor season and that includes a lot of BBQ's and picnics!  I am currently getting our patio ready for the good times to come and hoping for good weather and great company of family and friends.

This is a collection of items for picnics and barbecues with an Americana flair.  You can find all of these (and more) on Etsy and if it's too late to get them for Memorial Day, you could have them for the 4th of July or your next get-together.

Decorations are a fun way to get a festive feel to your party.

Beautiful Bunting Handmade Red and White

The table is where I spend most of my effort.  Great items here that I would love to have on my patio table this summer!

Vintage Glass Pitcher with Matching Glasses

Darling Vintage Barrel Style Relish Dish Jar

Star Spangled Red, White and Blue Cloth Napkins

Vintage Red and White Check Metal Bowl

And you need a place for family and friends to sit back, relax, and share stories.  These vintage chairs are great for that!

I adore the vintage feel of this handmade apron - beautiful and fun details.  You have to keep your cute outfit clean!

The little ones need something cute to wear too and this pillowcase dress looks so comfortable as well.

And for the activities...croquet anyone?  I grew up playing croquet and my kids love it too.

Wishing All a fun summer with friends and family!
