Guide To Great Memorial Day Party Blog Article Header 1200x300 75

Memorial Day is around the corner!

It’s time to sweep the leaves off the deck and fire up the grill. What better way to celebrate the unofficial start of summer than with the first outdoor party of the season?

If you want to keep your Memorial Day party traditional, you can never go wrong with the family-friendly basics: hot dogs and hamburgers. Other popular grill staples like chicken, steak, and hearty corn-on-the-cob or zucchini are guaranteed to be crowd-pleasers.

If you’d prefer to reserve the standard summer fare for July 4th (it will be here before you know it!) there are plenty of other themes you could try for your Memorial Day bash. Tempt friends to a beach party by grilling chicken kebabs with bell peppers, onions, and sweet pineapple. Or throw a summer fiesta with grilled hanger steak, peppers, and onions, all tossed into a warmed tortilla.

Whether your party is patriotic, beachy, family fun, or grown-ups only, don’t forget to pick up lots of snacks. Print out this handy shopping list to make sure that you don’t forget any of the essentials for your Memorial Day party!
