Patriotic Entertaining Ideas {Memorial Day}

Happy Happy Friday! I hope you all have lots of amazing plans for this long weekend. Some of you might even be getting the party started early today!

As we get ready for this Memorial Day weekend, let us not forget the real reason we are able to have BBQs with friends and family. Take some time out of your busy weekend to pay your respects to those who have sacrificed for our freedom. What an amazing country we live in!

Are you entertaining or being entertained this weekend? Either way below are a few ideas that I have found out and about on the web. These would even work for the 4th of July if you have already planned out your weekend.

How adorable is this patriotic table by my friend Cassie from Hi Sugarplum! I love the red dalmatian printed table cloth. There is just the right amount of each color.

If the weather is good, you could always pull your sideboard outside and make an adorable serving area for your friends and family. 

Doesn't this Red, White & Blue Sangria look amazing? Click HERE to get the full recipe as well as many more patriotic drinks for your holiday weekend!

This is a great idea! One serving set per person. Using colorful bandanna's as napkins with utensils all set into a ball canning jar = perfection! This could be used for any event!

I am sure many of you have seen this picture with the fruit skewers  How yummy and perfect this would be for a family party!?

Does this dessert look delightful or what? This is actually a gluten free Ice Cream Pie! If you haven't visited the Yummy Mummy Kitchen, you must! So many wonderful and healthy recipes! 

So, tell you have a Memorial Day Tradition? We use to spend the whole weekend as a big family at my parents cottage on one of NY's finger lakes. Now that my parents live down here in NC, we don't have a specific tradition. I guess we need to start one! 

Have a wonderful long weekend my friends! See you back here on Tuesday!


  1. Luke's birthday party is all red, white, and blue! I was planning on doing a fruit salad, but the fruit skewers are so much cuter! Thanks for sharing the great ideas! :)

    1. Aren't they adorable!? Hope the party planning is turning out amazing! Can't wait to see pics!
