Here’s a really simple but fun idea…take out those jimmies or sprinkles and roll your ice cream cones in them and viola…the perfect Memorial Day treat (check out the home made stand it is on..cool!)¬† Thank you…an ALL YOU creation.


All You gives us some more ideas here…have your friends make their pretty cones with a little ice cream bar on ice…supply the sprinkles…ice cream and cones and let everyone have fun.¬† Notice the fabulous jar of lemonade, the ant on the cookies (so cute) and the fun simple bunting. They also use cut out stars on a simple check table cloth…what a great way to bring it all together and with items you probably all ready have in the house!


All You had so many fabulous ideas I had to show you a few more…notice…they take simple red bandanas which can be found in Michaels or many craft store and created a table runner (so clever)…then…


created a pocket for silverware with a blue bandana and an accent of twine and simple star threaded through…so easy but tons of fun!…then…


the final touch on the table…just take your mason jars…line them with lemons…add water…daisies or your favorite flower and there you have it…an outstanding and very interesting and beautiful display!¬† Thank you All You for your ideas and creativity!


The pages of Better Homes and Gardens has some cool ideas for decorations…I love this one…just taking a simple container…filling it up with some grass…add baseballs (nothing says Americana like BASEBALL) add a few flags and there you have it!¬† SOOOOO clever and I think very impressive!!!


BH&G has some other great ideas to spruce up your front porch with that patriotic flair…a little bit of red white and blue goes a long way…just check it out…right down to the adorable pup with a red and white color…everyone is getting into the spirit of Old Glory!


Here’s a brilliant idea from Social Couture
It’s a useful decoration and a favor!


Social Couture also shares this really unique idea…don’t you just love it…it would be great for a “school” party too!¬† Apple Garland.


I think the kids would love to make and fill these cute craft projects from the pages of Martha Stewart


Martha says…lace some crepe paper through those spokes…add so streamers…flags and stars and you are ready for the parade!!!




What child or grown-up wouldn’t love this as a favor…get the kids to help you put them together…they will love it…How cute are these…get the how to !


¬†One more from Martha…these adorable lanterns…the children are going to adore making these and you can do this for so many different holidays with the change of color and decoration…save it…it is so easy everyone will have fun!


Here’s another great project for the kids…one that you can use for Memorial Day and the Upcoming 4th of July!¬† A clever craft and a great way to recycle those toilet paper rolls!¬† Check out the how to on DLTK!15.

Who would not want to drink some yummy lemonade from these adorable jars…it is so easy your head will spin…Let Jess at
Two Shades of Pink
show you how!


I am really embarrassed…I can not find the link to this idea that I saw…as soon as I find it it will be added but I had to share it any way because I think it is BRILLIANT…I mean taking a dollar paper lantern and turning it into a festive vase and then you can collapse it and use it again next year is FABULOUS…don’t you agree!


Here’s another quick and easy decoration…get the how to at
