Softer Shades of Red, White and Blue Decorations for Memorial Day

I have the more "private" area of the front porch decorated for Memorial Day in softer shades of red white and blue......

The more public side of the front yard is decorated in the bright shades of red white and can see a sneak peek if you look in the center of the wreath.    I hope to get the front yard decorated tomorro and I will take some photo's and do a post.

I  planted some geraniums in my pink boots and added some pastel flags that I made.

I also added some striped bows to the chairs by the front door.  

 I made a rag garland to add to the existing door wreath.

My cowgirl dress form got a rag garland added to her existing outfit.....  

I added a bow and some geraniums to my cowgirl's boots.....

I took a photo from inside the house looking out the front door..... thru the wreath.... just for fun

I am still working on some bouquets to put out at the cemetery for Memorial Day.    

This one will be put on  my mother and daddy's headstone.....
