This week on the blog I shared a fun golf theme tablescape idea for Father’s Day.

Even you aren’t hosting Father’s Day, these ideas would be great for a golf theme birthday party.

You can see all of the ideas and inspiration here.

I can’t believe it’s already Memorial Day weekend!!

Summer is coming SO fast and my Texas weather is heating up very quickly.

I’m trying to enjoy every minute outside until it gets too hot to be out.

I spent the day yesterday deep cleaning my back patio and getting it summer ready, and working on pulling out the patriotic decor.

I typically decorate with my red, white and blue decor outside for Memorial Day weekend and leave it up until Labor Day since July 4th will fall between the two.

If you need tablescape inspiration for the patriotic holiday, you can see my red, white and blue table here.

a red, white and blue table setting with a stack of plates at each place setting placed on top of a 12x18" flag used as a placemat. A white dinner plate, then a smaller blue transferware dinner plate, a fluted edge white salad plate topped with a red transferware salad plate. A blue bandana for a napkin and silverware are standing inside a clear glass goblet. Scrabble tiles with a patriotic word are at each place setting.

and if you need a fun dessert for a patriotic holiday, this easy American Flag dessert pizza will definitely be a crowd pleaser.
