Celebrate Memorial Day with the Perfect Party

Memorial Day BBQ

Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of summer. What better way to celebrate than getting outdoors with friends and family? Instead of letting the federal holiday in late May sneak up on you, take advantage of the day off by celebrating the start of a new season.

Since students are off from school, Memorial Day is a great time to plan something that’s friendly for parents who are home from the office and their little ones, too. Though it may be a little early for a pool party, depending on the weather (we all know how unpredictable that Jersey weather can be), a park picnic or a backyard barbecue are two of the easiest ways to enjoy the spring sunshine and a day outside of the normal 9-to-5.

No need to buy new decorations for a Memorial Day celebration. This is your chance to preview your Independence Day duds ahead of July 4th. Red, white, and blue is the best way to honor the federal holiday. As for food? Temps are rising and the winter wear’s been retired. That means it’s time for your grill to make its annual debut. Hot dogs, hamburgers, and skewers (check out these yummy BBQ shrimp Skewers from SkinnyTaste) are simple staples, no matter the size of your guest list. Make the sides and dessert even easier by throwing a potluck event. That way each guest can show off their specialty, whether it is Grandma’s potato salad or your golf buddy’s signature pineapple upside-down cake.

And don’t forget a party soundtrack that’s fun for the whole family. Mixing today’s Top 40, from Taylor Swift to Maroon 5, all the way back to classic artists like Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston, you can keep attendees happy as they dance through the decades.

Beyond the dance party, keep the kids (and adults) busy with fun activities, including: lawn games (like these awesome DIY Yard Yahtzee game from Momtastic), frisbee, and family competitions, like water balloon tosses. The only question left is whether you want to add a little rum to the party’s punch to keep the celebrations going!
