Memorial Day Ideas

Memorial Day is just around the corner, which means summer is just around the corner! Memorial Day has always had a specific image in my mind. I think of a sunny afternoon in the park or the backyard swimming, grilling, and relaxing. It's a great way to ring in the summer season, (and, if you think about it, a patriotic holiday falls at the beginning, middle, and end of summer. Isn't that nice?)

Martha Stewart offers an array of patriotic crafts and decor ideas that are easy and unique that you can keep around for July 4th!

I plan to make a few of these star medallions for my own Memorial Day BBQ

Since grilling takes center stage at just about any Memorial Day event, try some of these fantastic-looking recipes and grilling tips from Martha Stewart:

The Perfect Burger

Cajun Kebabs with Chicken and Andouille

And for more fun, nontraditional recipes:

I can't wait to post more ideas for July 4th! Happy Memorial Day Everyone!
