Memorial Day is almost here.  This year is the first time I’ll be putting memorial arrangements out for a veteran.  My father and grandfather both passed away last year, and they were military veterans. I will take time to remember their service during the holiday.  If you’re gearing up to put out patriotic decor, consider using it again for Independence Day.  I always love getting a 2-for-1 deal, don’t you?  The DollarTree has lots of Memorial Day decorations that are both affordable and adorable. 

Here are some of my favorite versatile items:

Bunting is a classic decor using during patriotic holidays.  At just $1 per item, why not take advantage of their $4.95 flat rate shipping offer (through 6/1).

Create a fun wreath using flip flops  this year!  You can leave it up all summer long.  Of course, you’ll want to snag a pair for yourself, too.  A fresh pair of flip flops makes those pool trips even more fun.

These chair bows can be used for all kinds of indoor and outdoor decor projects.   I think they would look great wrapped around a tree, or even across the entryway.  Be sure to get a couple of each design.


If you’re near the DollarTree, take advantage of these patriotic themed products.  What other items do you like on their site?

  1. This is a great idea, and they had the patriotic decorations right up front for all to see. I love the idea of bows on the chairs. I’ve found quite a few freebies at the Dollar Store as well, using coupons, which is always fun. Great post and glad I found you! Hugs…RO
