Who’s ready for the the holiday weekend? I am! Our Memorial day weekend will be filled with lots of pool and BBQ-time. Perfect way to celebrate with friends and family. When we moved into our new home a couple of months ago, the backyard needed a looot of work. The bushes were over grown and ground was wet and muddy. Not a fun place to hang out at all. The backyard needs a complete overhaul for sure, but we really wanted a yard we could hang out in this summer.
So not having time to take on a major yard project we set our minds to doing some major trimming and cleaning up. With a ton of overgrown plants, weeds, dead leaves and misc debris gone…there was much more space to work with. Good start.

The 4th of July is less than a month away and Americana goodies are in the stores to prove it 😉 I was at my favorite Target yesterday and I couldn’t resist all of the blue and star-themed party goods from the Peanuts gang. Most of the time 4th of July decor can be a little to busy for me. Plus I don’t like to use a lot of disposable party products. I like to buy things that will last more than one use and hopefully be repurposed somewhere else.
Target didn’t let me down! I thought it would be nice to simplify a lil’ bit and go with a blue and white color scheme. Since a lot of my outdoor decor is blue and white this theme will be right at home AND I’ll easily be able to tie it all in for future events. The galvanized metals adds some great texture as well. I’m also never one to turn away from star décor; aren’t those galvanized star candle holders super adorable?!
And what would the 4th of July be without s’mores? Target had fun star shaped marshmallows in pink, white and blue. I don’t see them on the website, but they’ll be in-store in the 4th of July party section along with the Snoopy Americana products.

Do you guys go all out for the 4th of July? How do you decorate? Do you buy new things every year or do you have the same items you like to use over and over?
Here are some items I spotted on my trip that would work with my theme!
