{ ten on tuesday - Memorial Day & Fourth of July Decorations }

Memorial Day is right around the corner and the Fourth of July is closer than you think. I use many of  the same decorations for both holidays and when I pull them out it really begins to feel like summer.  You can check out my Patriotic Inspire board on Pinterest too for more ideas.

My favorite ideas that I have made or will be making for summer celebrations...

1.As a little kid I always wanted to ride my bike in the town parade, but I was really too shy too. Queen B asked last year to ride and hopefully she won't be as timid as her mom.

2. I love glass jars. I have many in all shapes and sizes throughout the house. I love filling them with seasonal decorations and this is so pretty!

3. The best thing about doors- decorating them. I plan on making this one for my back door this year.

4. I like to sneak little accents in on shelves and this is one of my favorites.

5. Strawberries are the summer fruit. Strawberries and chocolate are a little piece of summer heaven.

6. I love the firecrackers coming from the top of the cake. Firecrackers on cakes are very festive and eye-catching.

7. Yeah, I pretty much love all things firecrackers. This centerpiece would make a nice inside decoration too.

8. I have these on my front porch and back deck. They look so pretty from afar and cast just enough light in the late evening that we don't have to turn on the yard lights.

9. The best instruction I have ever come across on making your own flags. I am a very novice sewer and I had no problems following along. You can also adapt it to so many other colors as well.

10. Working with paint chip sheets is new to me and they are very versatile.  They give a nice stripe effect that I love.

What are some of your favorite decorations?
