With summer quickly approaching and Memorial Day in a few weeks, we wanted to make sure you had plenty of ideas for your Memorial Day activities. Each day we will be serving up a variety of different appetizers, main dishes, desserts, decor, printables and more all centered around the up-coming Memorial Day. We hope you enjoy all of these wonderful ideas.
Tune in each day starting with Monday, May 12 and ending on Saturday, May 17. We have great prizes up for grabs throughout the week so you will not want to miss out on any of the days!

It’s Friday, which means you deserve a cocktail!
And these easy red wine “coolers” are the just the ticket! These refreshing, boozy smoothies have only 2 ingredients and they are the perfect summer treat to enjoy on the patio with some friends.
Here’s what you’re gonna need:
1 bottle of your favorite pinot noir, chilled
2 cups frozen strawberries
Here’s what you’re gonna do:
Combine wine and strawberries in a blender.
Blend until smooth.
How gorgeous is that color?!
