Patriotic decor for the dollhouses...

With Memorial weekend approaching, I decided to pull out my patriotic crafting supplies to decorate the dollhouses.
 The mini bunting is made from crepe paper that I folded and pinned into place.  
The crepe paper was available at the Dollar Tree last year.  I haven't looked lately, but I'm guessing they have lots of patriotic supplies again.
 
The red, white and blue bottle brush trees were purchased many years ago while on vacation.
The keystone dollhouse is decked out with all kinds of miniature flags.

The mini picket fence certainly has had lots of seasonal makeovers this year.

Happy playing!  
Happy soon-to-be Memorial weekend!

So so adorable! I reallly love the American tradition of decorating with the red, white and blue streamers, looks especially beautiful with the plantation style.

Your dollhouses are certainly patriotic now! I saw a wooden dollhouse similar to your plantation style one at the antique fair this weekend. I must have been in a daze from looking at the price tag, because I forgot to take a photo for you. Hope your weekend is both fun filled and relaxing!
