Easy Patriotic Berry Cups via homework02Today in the United States, it’s Memorial Day – a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. And while we honor and remember these brave men and women, the long weekend also signifies the unofficial start to summer and backyard gatherings.

Easy Patriotic Berry Cups via homework03With Memorial Day, Flag Day and The Fourth of July all packed into a few months, there’s plenty of opportunity to gather together with friends and family.

Easy Patriotic Berry Cups via homework10These berry cups are a quick and easy way to add a patriotic touch to your table or as a take-along to a friend’s house.

Easy Patriotic Berry Cups via homework04I founds these little snap-on-lid containers at the dollar store and they’re perfect for saving small things whether it’s in the kitchen, craft room or bathroom.

Easy Patriotic Berry Cups via homework07This patriotic line from American Crafts has all the little touches to jazz up your summer celebration. For the cups, I used a strip of scrapbook paper to create a collar or roll for the plastic cup to sit in. Store the berries in the fridge and when you’re ready to set them out, just plop them into the premade paper rolls. A scalloped punch created the perfect size circle to cover the lid. Chipboard buttons and self stick expressions keep the theme going.

Easy Patriotic Berry Cups via homework11I like using non-breakable serving pieces and dishes in the backyard and these little cups are going to be used a lot. Just change out the paper and embellishments for different occasions.

Easy Patriotic Berry Cups via homework01Enjoy the holiday as we remember those who sacrificed so that we could let freedom ring.
