Memorial Day BBQ Recipe & Decor Inspiration

Memorial Day is right around the corner - and although we've been having wild weather over here on the west coast, you can bet that we'll be donning our favorite white denim and sipping a signature cocktail to kick off the summer season and honor service men and women who have lost their lives.

We love a good themed party, who doesn't? Here is a round up of some of our favorite Memorial Day recipes and decor, plus a few tips for mastering the Memorial Day BBQ!

Try a fun twist on ice! We love surprising and delighting guests - so why not spend a few extra minutes upgrading your ice to give guests a little surprise in their cocktail!

Bite size food is fun! Kids aren't the only ones who enjoy bite-size food - get creative by pairing patriotic colored foods together to make simple recipes seem fancy.

Think of easy ways to decorate your patio. We love the way these red, white, and blue streamers create a patriotic inspired space. Without spending a lot of money or time, you can add patriotic touches to your exterior - try sprinkling chalk over star templates on your lawn!

Use natural elements in your decor. Themed parties don't always need to look like you went to Party City and bought everything in sight; try using natural elements to incorporate the theme into your decor and recipes. Use fresh fruits and veggies, and in-season blooms on your table!
