Memorial Day is just a few days away and if you’re like me, it’s completely snuck up on you. Thankfully, you can easily find red, white, and blue decor that will brighten up your home for a barbecue or whatever the reason… while not breaking the bank to do it.

Red, white, and blue decor seen at our brand new Winona store. You can find similar themes at many Goodwill stores this time of year.

There are several ways to do it:

  1. Blatant “Americana” items, like in the image above. Flags, flag-themed items, etc. There are even stars and stripes-themed tiki torches at our Winona store.
  2. Another method involves a more passive version. You can just find red items, white items, and blue items.

    Perhaps a red lobster decoration or a decorative porcelain red tomato could work well on its own… add them together with some blue and white accents, and suddenly you have decor that can work for Memorial Day weekend AND 4th of July weekend.
  3. It’s also possible to blend the two.
Take a moment to look at these items. Some are meant for patriotic holidays, while others just happen to be red, white, or blue. Can you spot these items?
