Happy Memorial Day! Patriotism is what today is all about. In the midst of all the happiness and partying, we hope you take some time to remember what this holiday is all about: remembering those who sacrificed their lives for freedom for the rest of us. In conjunction with that, for this week we’ve put together a patriotic Pinterest board.
Memorial Day is also the kickoff to summer, and a family and friends barbecue is the best way to celebrate! Decorate your house with red, white, and blue. Paper Chains, streamers, and painted jars are easy DIY projects you can do to turn your event into a patriotic party. Line your walkway with mini flags, or decoupage or paint flags onto glass candle jars.
Yard games are perfect activities for all ages. Corn hole, ringtoss, and tic tac toe are great suggestions. Make your own with items you can find around your house and paint them red, white, and blue!
Hot dogs and hamburgers are a must-have. Fruit, pasta salad and corn on the cob are great choices for sides. For non-alcoholic beverages, offer fresh lemonade or red, white, and blue slushies, the kids will love them!
American flag cookies and cupcakes are simple and easy. Other sweet treats can include fruit pizza, popsicles, or ice-cream sundaes.
A bonfire is the perfect ending to a fun-filled barbecue. Create a DIY s’mores bar with different add-ins. Close out the night with fireworks and sparklers.
