Memorial Day is just under two weeks away, friends! The long-weekend provides a much needed break and the opportunity to get together with friends and family. If you’re excited to fire up the grill, decorate your home, and come together with friends and family- we hear you!! Memorial Day kicks off the summer and all of the holidays to come. With this in mind, you need essentials that are perfect for your Memorial Day celebration AND will serve you all summer long. (BBQ essentials we’re looking at you!) We have compiled a list of everything you need from festive decor and outfits to grilling tools you’ll be using all summer long.
Memorial Day decor:
If you are hosting the Memorial Day celebration amongst your friends and family, chances are that you will want to do some decorating. We found some festive items that will work perfectly for Memorial Day and you can leave them up through the 4th of July. For seating, you can’t go wrong with a sturdy picnic table and these Ozark Trail camping chairs. For those of you that will be carrying the party into the evening, make sure you have some outdoor lighting. These string lights are really popular and makes your patio look like something straight off of a Pinterest board! Add some patriotic flare to your lawn with these star-shaped garden stakes and flag.
Now let’s talk food! The chances are high that you will probably be hosting a BBQ for your Memorial Day celebration. Take your grilling skills to the next level with this grill basket and skewers. If you are a grill master, you need this grilling caddy to keep all of your essentials on hand to avoid running in and out of the house. Hosting an epic BBQ doesn’t end at the delicious food, you will want to keep your guests entertained. A round or two of cornhole or horseshoe should do the trick. Keep the good vibes going with some music from this waterproof speaker.
