Memorial Day is right around the corner, which means it’s time to start planning your party! Whether big or small, Party Host Helpers has you covered with some great Memorial Day party tips to make sure you throw the bash of the year! Our Austin Regional Director and party expert, Alison, has a few great ideas that will help you get patriotic this Memorial Day!
Set up a hot dog bar!
We love anything DIY at Party Host Helpers because it’s simple and is a great way to turn a classic Memorial Day food into something fun and exciting! Add some elaborate toppings to the table and let guests make their own based on their taste! Even better, it is an easy way to please picky eaters.
Organize a craft beer tasting!
Showcase a sampling of summer brews or fruit beers to kick off the start of summer in style! Take suggestions from friends ahead of time and do a taste test to see what the favorite is so you know for the next time you throw a party!
Add color with Bandanas!
Bandanas are not only for your head anymore. They can be used as a tablecloth, utensil holders or napkins and add a festive, summery flair. Use red and blue ones to bring out your patriotic side!
Set up some outdoor games!
This is a great way to keep everyone entertained, especially the kids. We love cornhole, giant jenga, and the ladder ball game! There are so many outdoor game options these days, and they al can be purchased from Amazon!
Remember to keep everything simple!
The idea of Memorial Day is to gather friends and family to celebrate, so don’t go too crazy with the food or decor. Grab some fun items from your local Dollar Store to add touches of color, throw some easy grocery store flowers in a mason jar and voila!
Don’t forget: Extra chairs, tons of ice and great music!
These are items that are necessary for every party, so make sure you’re prepared before the party starts! If you don’t want to rent or buy extra chairs, throw a few blankets with pillows in the grass to be the extra seating. Also, keep the music up beat, so the party goes all night long (if you want).
Make life easier and hire Party Host Helpers!
