Memorial Day Weekend Party – An All-American day

Posted on May 22, 2008. Filed under: Party Ideas, Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , , , |

There are many reasons to celebrate Memorial Day weekend. The beginning of summer, the opening of swimming pools, the end of school, a long weekend and, most importantly, a time for remembrance and observance! Most families have special ways of celebrating the holiday and honoring those who have died serving the country. In these years of war there is a special poignancy to this holiday, so take some time to remember, fly the flag, and enjoy every minute of the long weekend.

Memorial Day Party Decorations:

There’s no such thing as being too patriotic, especially on Memorial Day. A red-white-and blue theme helps us remember our veterans.

  • No symbol is more fitting than the American flag. Now they are even easier to display, with flag poles made specifically for decks, yards and picnics and even tailgate parties! Remember if you’re flying an American flag, it flies at half-mast until noon.
  • Decorate with red, white and blue balloons, flowers, vases, tablecloths and tableware.
  • Cloth napkins not only add style to your holiday, but they won’t blow away as easily as paper ones.
  • String red, white and blue fairy lights in trees and bushes to add a cool glow after the sun goes down. For a more elegant touch, hang mini lanterns on a string above your party area.
