Memorial Day Weekend Ideas

First and foremost I would like to express my sincere appreciation and respect to the men and women in uniform and their families for their sacrifice and dedication.


Along with the picnics and fun this weekend provides, it is also a time of rememberence and reflection of what our armed forces do for our great country.


And for that, my family and I humbly thank you.

For those of you who will be camping this weekend, here is a perfect treat to take along or make at your campsite!  For a step by step tutorial on how to make these cuties, click here.

Patriotic Bear Cookies are great to pack on your picnic!  Dip Oreos in white chocolate and add mini marshmallows for ears and a candy coating wafer for the nose.  Decorate with edible markers and sprinkles and you have yourself a sweet little treat!

Nutter Butter flip flops with a patriotic flair!  Add red fruit roll up stripes or white sprinkle stars to Nutter Butters dipped in white or blue candy melts.  Finish off with licorice lace or Rips Whips candy and more sprinkles and you have a fun cookie that is so flippin' cute!

Add flag pics and star sprinkles to dress up your cupcakes!

Paper fans make an inexpensive and dramatic backdrop.

S'more cupcakes so cute and delicious everyone will be asking for s'more! For the s'morelicious recipe, click here.
