The weather is warming up, bugs are out, and the kids are sticking around the house for their summer break. All this means one thing: Memorial Day weekend is here. The most important thing about this day and weekend is to honor the brave men and women who have died serving in our military. How can we celebrate in their honor? Through a fun summer cookout! If you need some pointers for hosting the ultimate Memorial Day party this weekend, read on to learn more!
Stock Up on Beverages and Booze
Which Memorial Day party is complete without a handful of good drinks? The sky is the limit here, and what you stock up on really depends on who will be in attendance. You will probably have a good mix of adults who want to let loose and some kids running around having fun. A good host will have something for each person. Stock up staples like sweet tea and soda. Basically, anything cold will do the trick. Provide plenty of variety, and do not forget to have some juice boxes on hand for any kids in attendance. Once you have non-alcoholic drinks set, you can focus entirely on the alcoholic drinks. You do not have to get real fancy. Beer is a great choice, and it will fit the bill for most people. However, you could also opt for some simple drinks like sangria or seltzers for those looking for something a bit on the sweet side.
Make Sure You’ve Got Enough Food
You can’t have a proper Memorial Day party without the cooking part. Food is the primary reason a lot of people come to these events. Sure, the company is great, and the games are fun, but let’s be honest: the food is the number one draw for most guests. Consider some chips and dip for appetizers, along with some mac and cheese, salads, or pigs in a blanket. Consider grilling up some burgers, hot dogs, sausages, chicken, and more for entrees. You can’t forget to set up the table with the right supplies. These include napkins, paper towels, utensils, and tablecloths. These are all available at H.C. Walterhoefer, so come in soon to prepare for this weekend!
