Summer is nearly here, and it’s getting to be that time where you can start planning those summer holiday parties. So, what better way to welcome summer than by throwing your very own Memorial Day party this year? Memorial Day should be a day of celebration and observation in America, and a party can be the best way to honor those who sacrificed their lives so that we could we could all continue to live safe and free.
Want to throw a great Memorial Day party this year? Consider some of these ideas when it comes to figuring out where you want it to be held, and what kind of decorations you would want to hang up.
When it comes to figuring out where you want it at…
So, it’s nearly summer, but it’s still spring….the weather can be temperamental around Memorial Day, so here are some places you can consider having your Memorial Day celebration at depending upon the weather:
1. If it is nice, hot, and sunny weather you can have a party on the beach, or you can host a pool party at your local/community pool.
2. If it is decent Spring weather you can host an outdoor picnic at your local park, or have a BBQ in your own backyard.
If you live in an apartment, you can still have a small Memorial Day party in your apartment, or on the grounds of your apartment.
When it comes to the decorations…
For Memorial Day, simple decorations will suffice. In fact, you should use decorations that are colored red, blue, and white (the colors of the American flag) because what is Memorial Day without the colors of the American flag?
You could also get stickers or paper flags and stick them on anything you deem appropriate. If you want to have some decorative lighting after the sun sets, you can place lights in red, white, and blue indoors or outside around the active party area.
Remember that your American flag should be flying outside! Having your flag outside honors all of those soldiers who sacrificed their lives for our country.
When it comes to the food…
Simply, just craft an easy menu. You just cannot go wrong with serving some of America’s favorites such as hamburgers, hotdogs, corn on the cob, potato salad, beans, etc.!
