Trophies for Memorial Day Activities



Our family starts the  Memorial Day weekend festivities with a trip to the cemetery to decorate the graves.

 Then we come home for a cookout.....maybe a quick nap after lunch......and then some fun family games.
   


I thought it might be fun to give out trophies to the game winners this year.

I found these trophies in a "free" box at a yard sale this past week end and could see the possibilities for a "makeover" !     
 

Dollar Tree made my free trophies look great  for just a couple of dollars! 


What was H doing while I decorated the porch?

We have a local supermarket that has Ribeye steaks for $5 a pound around the holidays....but you have to buy them uncut.   So H was busy cutting steaks this morning for our Memorial Day cookout.  


Are you getting ready for Memorial Day yet?  
Seems I'm getting slower and I have to start getting ready earlier than I used to....lol!

  2. It sounds like the PERFECT memorial day with family. Not sure what we are doing yet. I have a huge family so anything could happen and usually does. Your display is so cute. Will you leave it all up through July 4th? I LOVE the car...adorable.

    Cute idea on using the trophies!! We are not particularly steak lovers. I don't eat them at all but joe will on occasion....

  5. What a fun idea to use trophies.

    We have a street party at the ocean front house on all the holidays. And, my job, every party, is to make homemade chocolate chip cookies and turn them into ice cream sandwiches.

    Thanks for sharing with SYC and have a great Memorial Day weekend.

  6. Oh man, I'm ashamed to admit we just got rid of trophies. My boys didn't want them and they were taking up so much space. Look at the cute idea you had!

    Cute little red car.
    Enjoy your cookout and Happy Memorial day!

  14. Dear Penny:
    These trophies look amazing. When I had my store the merchants had a sock hop in the park and we took old trophies and "repurposed" them for prizes. It was great because they cost so little but looked impressive. yours are even cuter!!! Thanks for sharing and linking.
