No one likes to go to parties and the same thing is happening all the time, nothing new is coming out of these same parties, so why keep going to them and getting bored. There are parties that you can do and add some fun to them.
Here are some Memorial Day Party twist ideas that you can do:
1. Classic American Theme
It’s Memorial Day, but that doesn’t mean you have to stick to a literal Americana theme. Try incorporating some American pride elements instead. Want to have a southern BBQ? Serve spiked sweet tea with festive drink stirrers. A California picnic? Think avocado and sprouts on a flag tablecloth.
Classic American theme touches different spectrums that allows you to be as creative as you possible can. There is nothing that you can’t come up with that wouldn’t fit the American theme, because honestly, America has done it all. The typical theme would be the American flag, the colors; red, white and blue and having the cotton candy machine with kids playing around, laughing and having fun.
2. Burgers and Dogs On The Grill
Take the guesswork out of what your guests will want to eat by offering a “you bring it, we grill it” option. Unless you’re a masochist (or a control freak), a potluck is a great way to let go of some responsibility and also incorporate new foods into the mix.
You’ll be assured that all your guests are eating what they like, and no one will go home hungry (a plus for anyone on a gluten-free or vegetarian diet!). As the host, you can still supply a few barbecue staples or sides.
Burgers and hot dogs are a essential foods to have included in a barbecue grill, without those two food categories you don’t have a real barbecue. Hot dogs and burgers are the lift of the event.
3. Casual Plastic Utensils and a Stack of Napkins
Sure, barbecues are meant to be informal. But here’s a way to class things up just a bit: These cute paper napkins hold utensils and come pre-folded, so all you have to do is slip in disposable flatware.
This is good for folks that don’t want to worry about putting there utensils on the table or having a dirty table and they can put it back into the holder.
4. Coolers Filled With “Usual” Beers
Get creative by offering craft beers that represent different parts of the country — like Chicago’s Goose Island, California’s Sierra Nevada or Atlanta’s SweetWater brew. Pack the bottles into a fun tub with ice and “park” it in the party zone.
Everyone drink the typical, usual beers that you see at every party, every event so why not make a fun festive craft activity out of beer brands.
Split into two teams. Enlarge the state map (link below), print it out and then cut out each state as puzzle pieces. (You’ll want to print twice so you can get two copies, one for each team.) The first team to correctly assemble the US wins!
This is a good game to play for those who have family and friends that are competitive to the max. You also have to watch out for those that have a hard time excepting the fact that they lost, they are the ones that try to ruin the game.
