Patriotic Summer Beach House Decor

Holiday decorating is a family tradition that everyone can enjoy. Thanks to my partnership with Oriental Trading, I was able to transform my home into a special Patriotic Summer Beach House to celebrate the summer holidays!

If you follow along here, or on Facebook, you probably already know that I’m obsessed with decorating for the holidays. Inarguably, Christmas is my favorite (I am actually an elf in mommy clothing after all), but I don’t discriminate against the other holidays. Whether it be Halloween, Mardi Gras, Valentine’s Day, 4th of July, or really any other holiday, I’m always down for making the house fun for the kids, and for me if we’re being honest!

Patriotic Summer Beach House Decor

Although Christmas is my favorite, summertime decorating is a total win all around; a lazy busy mom’s decorating dream come true so to speak. Why, you ask? Because what’s better than THREE patriotic holidays in a row? That’s right, one set of decorations, a one-time set up, and BAM…you’re done decorating for Memorial Day, the 4th of July, and Labor Day…just like that!

Red, white, and blue everything…all summer long. From Patriotic Hanging Lanterns lined neatly (hello OCD) in your beach den with tiki bar, of course…

To Patriotic Windsock String Lights lighting the way on entryways throughout your home, you really can’t go wrong!

This year, I went with an American theme and I’m glad I did because this heavy-duty Cloth Americana Bunting and matching Cloth Vintage Pillar Buntings have really been standing up well to these crazy storms we’ve been having in Galveston so far this summer. Seriously….so much wind and rain, it’s insane!

Although I do primarily do all of my holiday decorating for my kids (and me), I really want anyone that stops by to feel welcome, so a patriotic welcome sign (or any other welcome sign) should always be on every home door…all the time. That’s my tip for the day; you’re welcome!

Pool Hoppin’ (Literally)

I’m not a photographer by any means, but every once in a while, I catch a shot that’s just too good not to share!  Memorial Day weekend brought many of these shots.  We practically lived at the pool all weekend and I was a snapping fool.

This shot of my “step” daughter is priceless!  I caught her in mid air, making an awesome face, and just having fun.  I love it and I hope you do too!

I hope your Memorial Day weekend was filled with fun, laughter, and special moments like mine.  Family time can’t be topped!  Goofy family time is priceless!  Enjoy the goofy moments in life, they’ll be the ones you miss most when your kids are grown.

Happy Memorial Day

Let’s all remember the reason we celebrate this day and thank a Soldier (or a gazillion…and if you’re reading this…thank you!).  But let’s also relish in the festivities!  My family has been hooping it up all weekend long!  Here’s just a little glimpse into our fun in the sun.  And there’s not only been swimming, but grilling, bike riding, and more outdoor play time.  I’m thankful to those that have given so much, and unfortunately some have had to give their lives, for the freedoms that my family is afforded!  We thank you, and we celebrate YOU!  Happy Memorial Day!

Yes, Happy Memorial Day!  Thank a soldier…you owe them your life as it stands. I don’t agree with war either but it’s a necessary evil in this world and thankfully, there are people willing to fight for US!  Rock on with your bad selves.  You are appreciated!
And for those mourning the loss of loved ones, I’m sorry, but he/she did not leave this Earth in vain.  My children have a better life because of their service.   We remember and we appreciate them.  Thank you for our freedoms!
