Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial summer kick-off and I couldn’t be more excited! This weekend we will be spending time with family and friends in Valencia, CA. The weekend plans include my favorite activities like morning walks, grilling and outdoor games, brunching, and a little shopping.
Like me, if you are not going to be home this weekend, it is a good time to start thinking about seasonal updates for your house and patio. I love the idea of a cozy and very patriotic reading nook on the patio. Add some festive pillows and red, white, and blue decor and you will be ready for Memorial Day and for the Fourth of July. In addition, find some gorgeous lanterns, festive cocktails napkins to have on hand, purchase mini flags, and if you haven’t already planted your summer flowers, do that this weekend! Your house will be ready for any last minute overnight guests and impromptu gatherings. Plus, your inviting patio will entice you to spend more time outdoors grilling and playing games all summer. Bocce anyone?!
Tomorrow, I will show you my favorite Memorial Day looks from Rent the Runway.
