Patriotic Love in Soft Pastels

The Patriotic holidays are just around the early summer we celebrate Memorial Day,  mid summer we celebrate the 4th of July,  and at the end of summer we celebrate Labor Day.     I usually bring out my Patriotic decor about the middle of May and leave it up til after Labor Day.     I never tire of  Red,  White and Blue but sometimes..... for a change...... I love to use the softer pastel colors of Patriotic decor that compliment my existing decor so well. 

Here's some examples showing how I've used pastel colors in my Patriotic decor over the years.......
