I've been really looking forward to Memorial Day this year because it marks one year for our little family in Charleston. It's also not just about the three-day weekend or awesome sales at your fave stores, but its the one day of the year set aside to thank our veterans and their families for their service and sacrifice.
Though we'll be the guests rather than hosts on Memorial Day, I suspect we'll have some friends over for some BBQ, brews, and Bags (cornhole) at some point throughout the weekend. I'd much rather be casual and comfy for picnics, especially since our Bags games can get intense!

You can find more inspiration for Memorial Day\July 4th and party planning here and here!
We'll be partying it up at my parents' casa to celebrate the 4th and my Dad's 60th birthday, so I'm helping my Mom with all of the party prep. I'm thinking of making it a "vintage Americana" type theme, with a mix of kraft food + drink labels, my burlap flag banner, mason jars, drink tins, and navy and red paper straws (of course!) I shared some of my inspiration above!
What are your plans for the weekend? Anyone else counting down the days until July 4th BBQs?!
