Memorial Day weekend is often thought of as the unofficial “official” start of the summer season. Friends gather, families come together, delicious food is prepared and fun and festivities ensue. Whether you’re hosting a cookout, enjoying some sun and sand or traveling to meet your loved ones, we’ve gathered some playful options to make this year’s Memorial Day celebration the best one yet—cue the salute.
Life of the Party
If you’re really wanting to try something new and unique this year, nothing could add more fun and ice-breaking ambience than this portable 5-person spa from Spa-N-A-Box. Easy set up with no tools required and voila, you’re the talk of the town with a “Bubbles and Brew” party theme. With HSN’s flex pay option this is the perfect party addition that will make memories (and ease sore backs) for years to come!
Need a place to rest those frosty cold beverages? Check out this personalized galvanized tub with stand from Personal Creations. Use it inside or outside for a stylish and personal touch that can be used for Memorial Day and more! I love that it comes with a stand but the handles make it easily portable to the next party and since it’s personalized, everyone will know it’s yours!
When it comes to food, think about nixing the traditional hotdog and burger cookout and opting for an outdoor pizza party. You can turn a regular kettle grill into the pizza parlour of your dreams with this pizza kit from KettlePizza! The hardest part will be figuring out which toppings to include for delicious homemade wood-fired pizzas. Yum!
Celebrate in Style
Cool and comfortable is key for what to wear to a Memorial Day soiree. This Diane Gilman Belted Top checks all the marks for summer cuteness and I love that it comes in a variety of colors including red, white, and blue! Pair it with cropped skinny girlfriend jeans like these from Curations. These flattering skinnies are available for most any shape including petite, tall and plus so you’ll feel confident knowing you have the perfect fit.
Round out the outfit with feminine slides from Anne Klein. The ordinary sandal design has been transformed with modern features like interesting gingham print and a double bow detail that’s the ideal mix of sass and comfort. Finally, don’t forget the accessories! A water resistant tote for outside activities and protective sunnies will complete a stress- free look that’s party approved.
