Cranberry is the New Red

Looking to incorporate some patriotic hues into your Memorial Day decor? Try using a cranberry finish as your ruby red tone versus the traditional reds. This classic wood finish has a beautiful deep red undertone that says “red” without being literal. This fresh twist on the classic will have your party guests singing your praises as a clever decorator. Introducing cranberry as your red alternative gives you the functionality to use your furniture year-round instead of putting it out just a few times per year for special holidays. Add a blue and white throw pillow or cushion to really pull together that celebratory look.

A Bunting We Will Go

Banners and bunting make for adorable backdrops. For a more versatile decor option, use patriotic paper-placemats to create your bunting. Simply fold a circular placemat in-half, place over a strand of twine and secure in place with wooden clothespins — no gluing or cutting necessary!  Use extra placemats for tabletop decor.
