Memorial Day Weekend is the official kick off of summer and it is just three weeks away.
The time is now to send out the party invitations, wash off the outdoor furniture, string some party lights in the yard, get the corn hole boards down from the attic and get ready for a weekend of summer fun.
Start with the invitation. Who, What, Where, Why and When is all you need with some fun art to print them up yourself or buy on line or from your favorite local party store. Pick your theme: patriotic or just BBQ or Pot Luck.
Then the fun begins shopping for decorations, paper plates and plastic ware, cups, beverages and food.
As the day gets closer, plan your menu and shop for the groceries buying in bulk if you are planning a large group. Be creative in your menu and décor planning.
And then finally it is what to wear.
Red, white and blue is the perfect way to dress to honor our brave soldiers who gave their lives so we can live in freedom in the greatest country in the world!
