May 25 decorating links brings us right into Memorial Day weekend! First and foremost we want to remember and pay tribute to those who have died serving our country in Military Service. Also, we would like to thank all who have served and are currently serving in the Military for this great country of ours, we are eternally grateful.
And as we move into Memorial Day weekend, a kind of unofficial start to summer the move is outside. With easygoing gatherings of friends and family, our outside spaces become more of a focus. So our May 25 decorating links brings us fun and easy entertaining inspirations for our summer weekends ahead.
May 25 decorating links of the week …
First off, we’ll begin with an article from MarthaStewart.com, Patriotic Ways to Commemorate Memorial Day. And because “it’s also ok to enjoy the day with your family & friends” this article gives you some really fun simple ways to do both!

Second, a crafty DIY Project to enjoy with your kids (or not)! This is such a clever idea that is really simple but looks very expensive and time-consuming. It also has a lot of different applications, like tying balloons on it for a birthday party. Take a look at MarthaStewart.com, Flag Cake-Stand Monument.
Third, we can’t have a BBQ without some awesome burgers! And there’s nothing like a good burger in my opinion. What’s your favorite burger? Mine is pure and simple, a beef hamburger. But I also like salmon, turkey or portabello mushroom burgers too. And my family and I have decided the bun is underrated! Because the bun is key to an overall good burger!
So take a look at FoodNetwork.com, Hamburgers. Then select a burger that fits your style from top Food Network Chefs and try it out this weekend!
Fourth, so lets set the table! Although it may too early for hydrangeas from your garden, visit your local Florist for beautiful blooms that will transport you right into Summer. And if a Farmhouse decorating style is for you, take a look at this article from bhg.com, Mini makeovers to add Farmhouse Style.
Lastly, an article from bhg.com Memorial Day Made Simple. For your Memorial Day weekend and Summer in general! An irresistible menu beginning with cocktails and finishing up with calorie worthy desserts! Complete with a party planning checklist, gotta love a good list!
It’s Friday! Hope everyone has a great weekend! And as always thanks for sharing your week with us! See you Monday ~ Nancy
