Patriotic Picnic - Memorial Day

Honestly, how often do we treat ourselves to an outdoor picnic in this day in age?  I always dream about sitting in the woods surrounded by trees, flowers, ferns & even little bunnies running by while enjoying some treats from home. A cool breeze blowing through the leaves, while the sun peaks through the clouds and casts those beautiful golden rays over us. 

With all that dreaming that I've done, in reality I'd never bring this much stuff to a country side picnic. I had the pleasure of working with Factory Direct Craft for a Memorial Day themed picnic. Our older boys will be out of school for the Summer come next week and I thought It'll be fun to kick off our Summer break & Memorial Day weekend with a patriotic picnic in our very own backyard. The kids always have so much fun when we bring out the champagne glasses and make things feel special.

DIY Herb Painted Doormat

Who knew you could paint your own doormat? I sure never thought of that, so when Terri at Decorate & More With Tip asked me to join her painted door mat challenge I was excited to join! I love trying new things and this was right up my alley! There are 10 other bloggers joining this challenge that you can check out at the bottom of this post! So many different designs, there's definitely one to fit your style, or inspire your own design!


I have enough doormats, but I've been wanting one to go in front of our little patio bench. Keeping with "all thing plants" right now. I thought it would be fun to try a herb botanical design. It's hard to get a lot of detail in the painting on the mat, so it didn't really turn out exactly how I had envisioned. I still like it though!

Crib Turned Patio Plant Wall Hanger

Every year when Spring arrives, I want to get outside and play in the yard! Our back patio has slowly been coming together as I add new décor and plants when I find good deals. We've been fortunate enough this year with cooler weather here in Florida, so we're enjoying sitting out back a little more. I'm hoping that doesn't mean we will be having an extremely hot summer! 

FB Marketplace is a great place to look for budget friendly décor for outside. I've actually picked up some things for free and this vintage crib is one of them! You can get 5 pieces of décor out of one crib! I hung the mattress spring on the wall inside our home and clipped family pictures to it. The side rails were perfect for a Plant Wall Hanging and the end rails will be used in our future garden as trellises.
