Panache: Memorial Day Ideas

This is such an important Holiday. Sometimes I think we get all caught up in the pool openings, the cookouts and long weekends, that we forget what this is truly all about. But perhaps the best way to honor those that died protecting our freedom is to do exactly just that…LIVE. Eat burgers, watermelons…dive into a cool pool…dip our toes in the sand. For their sacrifice allows us to create our memories. These are just a few ideas for your Memorial Day Weekend…Some inspiration.

The Perfect Centerpiece…All you really need are flags

Love this idea too…Simply paint your Pineapples Red, White and Blue…Don’t forget the sparklers.

I just LOVE bandannas!!! They are so easy to keep in a drawer and you have a nice cloth napkin for your guests. Very Western…USA. And this cowgirl LOVES them!

The Perfect dessert to bring to a party. Just drizzle with some melted chocolate to really take it over the top!

The Perfect Appetizer to bring to a cookout.

How EASY….And Super Cute. The kiddos will just devour these. For Sure!

Another really great idea…Easy. Awesome!

The PERFECT outfit for a Memorial Day Cookout…

This is a really cute clutch to carry you into the evening hours….It is Kate Spade (last summer)…but you can find it on ebay.

LOVE this bracelet…and I LOVE Marley Lilly. Check out all the summer must haves at

Don’t Forget to watch Jaws…A CLASSIC

This is my favorite idea on this post…How great for the kiddos.
