Memorial Day is this Monday. A lot of people only know the holiday is coming up because they get an extra day off from work or school, extending their usual 2-day weekend to a 3-day weekend.
Memorial Day is a day those who passed away in the military are remembered and honored.
Those who have been in the military or know of someone who was in the military like to celebrate this day as they perceive this day as a day of appreciation. But how do you host a Memorial Day party? The key is patriotic colors! Whatever you decorate with or decide to cook — just remember to stick to red, blue, and white.
And don’t forget to incorporate the American flag here and there around the house!
#1. Since fireworks are illegal in some neighborhoods, opt out for these safe confetti popper rockets instead.
#2. Create an assortment of heathy treats like fruits and pretzels and arrange them to look like the American flag.
#3. For something fruity and a little more scrumptious, try making a strawberry and blueberry cheesecake.
#4. Mix some blue, red, and white streamers with string lights over a high beam to make an eye-catching entrance.
#5. Recreate these festive and easy to make candle holders by filling masor jars with grains of rice.
Use food coloring to change the color of some of the grains to create the three layers.
#6. Bake a delicious cake that looks like the flag from within when you cut out slices.
#7. This treat requires no baking! Just purchase pre-made rice krispies and dip them into Wilton’s melted chocolate in red and blue.
Stick decorative paper straws in them for decor and so your guests won’t have sticky residue on their hands when enjoying their treat.
#8. Summer’s just around the corner, which means it’s getting hot. Help everyone cool down with these decorative ice cream bars!
#9. Use blue, red, and white yarn to create decorative light fixtures to go over string lights.
