How to throw a fantastic Memorial Day weekend Party

by webdev

May 24, 2012

Memorial Day weekend is fast approaching and for many families, it is the perfect time to throw that first summer party. Because the party will be the official kickoff of summer, it's important to ensure everything is perfect and that your theme is on point.


The theme of your Memorial Day party should be red white and blue, to remember those who have given their lives for America in service. Enhance your outdoor space by blowing up red, white and blue beach balls for the kids (and the adults) to use - if you have room it may also be fun to set up a volleyball net. Decorate your chairs and tables with festive crepe streamers and pick up paper goods in red white and blue.

Specialty cake

A fabulous (and delicious) way to represent America on Memorial Day is to make a stunning American flag sheet cake. To do this, start by baking a standard sheet cake in yellow or chocolate. Then whip up some whipped cream for the frosting and cut up fresh strawberries and blueberries. Use the blueberries to create the stars on the sheet cake and the cut strawberries to act as the red stripes.

Festive flowers

The perfect way to top off the decorations for your affair is to pick up Memorial Day flowers to place on the tables at your party. A collection like Teleflora's Hope Bouquet is a great option as it consists of white gerberas, red miniature gerberas, white roses and dark blue delphinium. The gold collectible gift cylinder vase is accented with lovely red white and blue ribbon, pushing the American spirit even more.
