More Party Ideas and Tips for Memorial Day 2017

What to Drink

If your crew enjoys a cold brew, don’t settle for the big box beers this year. Get a variety of craft beers instead. You can go solely local or you can try micro brews from your favorite states. Even more, ask your friends to bring a six pack of their favorite craft beers to help with the variety.

You can also have specialty drinks like a red, white, and blue sangria. Here’s a great recipe. If you need more ideas, check out these crazy Memorial Day inspired cocktails from Cosmopolitan.

If you’re going to be hosting a lot of kids at your party then think about making them a specialty drink as well. Here are some ideas from Pinterest.

Games to Play

You should also plan on having some games to play. Every outdoor event needs some fun, and games will keep both the kids and adults entertained. Furthermore, who doesn’t like a little friendly competition? You can go with traditional or crazy. We like a mix. Below you’ll find a list of each that you can use.


  • Birdie
