The Quick List: Memorial Day Celebrations

Memorial weekend 2012 is upon us in less than 24 hours.  Here are a few last minute tips to throwing a celebration that your family & friends will be talking about all summer long!

#1. Fun Printables.  These FREE party printables are great for any summer party but why not kick off the summer with a bang?!

#2. Patriotic Food & Drinks.  There are endless wonderful patriotic ideas, I have picked my top 3 for you based on creativity and cost effectiveness: American chips and salsa, healthy fruit skewer flag and star spangled s'mores.

#3. Keeping the Party Going.  Make use of all the outdoor space which is the best part about entertaining in the summer months!  Get out all the games you have; cornhole, ring toss, horseshoes and even set up a baby pool for guests to cool off their feet.  For shindigs that continue into the late hours, break out the tiki torches.  And as always, make sure to stock up on the essentials (food, alcohol, propane, ice, etc.) since grocery stores will be closing early all weekend.  Enjoy & stay safe friends!
