Memorial Day barbecues are one of my favorite traditions, and I like to go all out to celebrate this important holiday. Here are my best picks for throwing a festive and memorable Memorial Day barbecue:
Go All American with Plates, Cups, and Napkins
Celebrate America’s war heroes with themed plates, cups, and napkins. Americana Red White & Blue Stars and Stripes Paper Lunch Plates are great for grazing on BBQ treats. Americana Lunch Napkins go perfectly with the plates and continue the red, white, and blue theme. I am partial to Creative Converting Red, White and True, Value Pack Hot or Cold Beverage Cups. They have a great old American flag look, and you can accommodate any kind of drink in them.
Set the Mood with Decorations
In my house, it’s not a Memorial Day celebration with at least a couple decorations. I love the Memorial Day Patriotic Flag by The Hamilton Collection because it goes beyond red, white, and blue to show the true meaning of the holiday. I think this flag is worth the investment, even if it’s only hung a weekend a year. For night time, I love the Patriotic Lighted Star Wall Decor by Collections, Inc. It sets the festive mood while reminding everyone of the holiday.
Round Out the Day with Some Games
Keep your guests entertained with some fun lawn games for your Memorial Day picnic. I find that having plenty to do makes everyone happy, and since I don’t have a pool, I like to load up on lawn games.
Champion Sports Ring Toss Set is a challenging and fun casual game for people of all ages. A little horseshoes with Champion Sports Rubber Horseshoe Set seems to get everyone in the party spirit. I love playing bocce ball at barbecues, and my favorite set is: Trademark Games 9 Piece Bocce Ball Set with Easy Carry Nylon Case.
