As we approach Memorial Day, it's time to reflect on the brave souls who have served our nation. Memorial Day decorations for your home are a wonderful way to honor their memory and service. Regardless of whether you're planning a quiet day of remembrance or a grand celebration, we're here to guide you on decking out your home with Memorial Day decorations that capture the essence of this honorable day. Also, follow our expert advice on preparing your home for the holiday to avoid any problems.


  • Choose a color palette that includes red, white and blue to create a patriotic holiday theme for Memorial Day.
  • Follow our tips and ideas for decorating the inside and outside of your home to remember those who served and payed the ultimate price for our country.
  • Don't forget to maintain your air conditioner to keep family and guests safe and comfortable during the Memorial Day weekend.

Ignite a Patriotic Atmosphere

Setting the scene for Memorial Day starts with choosing a color palette that embodies our national flag. Begin your Memorial Day decorating by integrating red, white, and blue into your decor. Here's how:

  • Deciding on a color scheme: Red, white, and blue are synonymous with our national flag and are perfect for your Memorial Day decorations. Use these colors throughout your home via tablecloths, cushions, rugs, or wall decor. Remember, a consistent color scheme results in a balanced and cohesive look.
  • Incorporating flags and bunting: Flags are a timeless symbol of patriotism. Proudly display them in and around your home. Buntings add a festive touch and can be draped along fences, across the porch, or even in the living room.
  • Integrating patriotic symbols: In addition to the flag, consider adding other symbols such as the bald eagle or the Liberty Bell into your decor. By being inventive with your Memorial Day decor, you can make your celebration uniquely yours.

Outdoor Memorial Day Decorations

Decorating your outdoor spaces for Memorial Day can transform your home into a festive and inviting venue. Here are some ideas:

  • Beautifying your porch or patio: Your porch or patio is often the first thing your guests notice. Make it inviting with Memorial Day decorations featuring patriotic colors, flags, and buntings. Add cozy seating and outdoor lighting for an inviting ambiance.
  • Establishing a patriotic outdoor dining area: If a barbeque or outdoor meal is on the agenda, a patriotic-themed dining area is ideal. Use red, white, and blue table linens and don't forget a centerpiece that mirrors the theme. Don’t forget to clean and maintain your grill so it’s in top shape for the holiday.
  • Creating an inviting entrance: Enhance your entrance with patriotic colors. A wreath of red, white, and blue flowers on the door, a flag by the entrance, or even a patriotic welcome mat can make a significant impact.

Indoor Memorial Day Décor

Extend the patriotic theme to the interior of your home. Here's how:

  • Decorating your living room or dining area: Incorporate patriotic colors in your living room or dining area. Adorn your sofa with red, white, and blue cushions, hang flag-themed wall art, or use patriotic-themed tableware on the dining table.
  • Creating a patriotic centerpiece: A centerpiece can be a great conversation starter. Consider creating one using flags, flowers in patriotic colors, or even miniature replicas of patriotic symbols.
  • Displaying patriotic artwork: Artwork can elevate your decor. Utilize patriotic-themed artwork in your living room, dining area, or even in your hallway to maintain the patriotic spirit.

Memorial Day decorating goes beyond simply integrating red, white, and blue into your decor. It's about celebrating and honoring the brave men and women who have served our country. So, as you prepare your Memorial Day decorations for your home, keep in mind to do it with respect and honor. Happy decorating!
