Hope you had a great Memorial Weekend! Between Memorial Day, 4th of July right around the corner, plus the Summer Games after that, some patriotic Americana decor seems rather appropriate to have out! Mr. Mom Endeavors’ parents were in-town for Memorial weekend and the weather was GORGEOUS here–especially so for Phoenix in the summer! So, we decided we’d be doing lots of grilling and outdoor dinners. To add to our patriotic feel, I headed to Cost Plus World Market to browse their Americana section! Not surprisingly, there was some awesome stuff!
SO many great items and that was just what I found at the front of the store! There was also great vintage Americana stuff–like snack holders, paper trays, and fast-food style serving baskets. Here’s what we ended up with:
The boys were all ready to enjoy our outdoor grilling fun, especially with their new patriotic pinwheels! The kids loved these, but they’d also be adorable as decor!
While the guys grilled, I got everything else set up outside. The large red, metal tray was great for holding all of the condiments, silverware, and napkins! And, I love how cute the flag bunting looks all hung up. Our little red & blue Americana food baskets were perfect for chips this time. But, next time we do grilled hot dogs or brats, I’m all about serving everything up in them! Super cute!
Dinner was delish and it was great to not only enjoy everything outside, but with some festive patriotic decor as well! It will be perfect for our events as the summer goes on! What events are YOU looking forward to this summer?
And, here’s something fun… right now, Cost Plus World Market is having a Red, White and Blue in London Sweepstakes! How cool would winning THAT prize be?!
