Last Memorial Day Weekend lacked the usual parties and festivities. With things slowly returning to normalcy this year, many are ready to pop open the grill and celebrate the long weekend. While we’re eager to gather with friends for some much-needed fun, caution is still necessary. If you plan on hosting a Memorial Day weekend party, we have a few tips and tricks for you.
Read on to discover everything you need to host a safe Memorial Day Weekend party.
Party planning is never easy, but it’s even more complicated in such unprecedented times. Save yourself the hassle of worrying about everyone’s safety by hosting your party outdoors. Be sure you have plenty of seating and table space for all your guests. This acrylic folding table is an excellent addition for guests to place drinks or plates and is durable enough to withstand outdoor fun.
Deck it out in decor
What’s a party without a bit of flair and decor? If you’re feeling festive and patriotic, consider going for a classic red, white, and blue theme. A blue or blue-accented vase filled with red flowers is sure to evoke a sense of patriotism for the holiday. These blue Annieglass sculptures will wow your guests, all while being perfectly in theme. You can even place a few candles in them as the evening wears on.
Prepare your food
Given that things are not entirely back to normal, you want to be extra cautious when it comes to widely shared things, such as food. If you plan on grilling, have a serving plate ready for the food once it’s cooked. Skewers are a great addition, as they prevent unnecessary touching of others’ food. Try to avoid communal snack bowls, such as chips or pretzels. And make sure you have a sturdy tray on hand, so you can easily transport food from inside the kitchen to your guests outdoors.
Have the right dinnerware
While you’re planning the menu, you should also think about the type of dinnerware you want to use. This dinnerware set is not only beautiful but extra durable for any mishaps that may occur during the festivities. To complete this outdoor-friendly set, pair your plates with these lovely Le Cadeaux Milano glasses. You can rest easy that guests won’t be shattering your good plates or glasses, and you can throw it all in the dishwasher at the end of the party.
We hope that the tips above allow you to host a safe and fun Memorial Day Weekend party with your family and friends.
