In honor of Memorial Day: Red, White and Blue Beans



Since this is Memorial Day weekend, I thought it would be the perfect time to transition out all of my spring decor and bring on the red, white and blue!

I (once again) decided I would use beans in my decor, but instead of spray painting them I was able to find red (kidney), white (great northern) and "blue" (black) beans to layer in a vase:

I set up a little vignette on my side table in the dining room.  I still have plans to decorate the mantle, front door and front of the house for the 4th of July so this is just the beginning:

 

To get some height, I stacked a couple of "American" books with pretty spines:

The little star was on Clearance at JoAnn Fabrics for $3 and I put the extra red and white beans in a tall drinking glass.



It is getting me in the patriotic spirit!  Happy Memorial Day!
