Memorial Day Party Tips and Ideas

A Memorial Day party can be a little tricky to plan for. It’s not blazing hot in the Triangle, but the temperatures are typically a little warm. It’s also a patriotic holiday, yet not as flag oriented as Independence Day. Hopefully these tips below will help you with decor and other planning ideas.


Even though this is not the 4th of July, you can still use all of the red, white, and blue that you want to in your decorations. You can get lots of different plates, napkins, tablecloths, streamers, and banners that can actually be used for both celebrations. Whatever you do not use for your Memorial Day party, keep for your 4th of July party.

The Food

You can’t have a good holiday celebration without having some good food. Memorial Day isn’t any different. However, you cannot please everyone. So instead of serving the usual burgers, brats, and hot dogs this year, have a “You Bring It and We’ll Grill It” theme. Not only does this ensure everyone is eating what they want, but you’ll be saving some money too.

If you’re struggling to figure out a few side items to make, or you’re set on cooking for everyone, here are some recipes for you try. These recipes are outside the norm, but still hold true to traditional food options for patriotic holidays.

For dessert, you have lots to choose from. Anything like cupcakes, pies, ice cream, cobblers, or fresh fruit will work. Here are a few dessert recipes from Food Network.
