GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOTV) - Memorial Day is a great holiday to throw a party; the weather is warming up, kids are getting out of school, and everyone is excited to jump into summer. Make your's pop this year with creative ideas that you'll have fun putting together.
Details matter. Think about all the details or your party and how you can incorporate them into your theme. Try cutting watermelon with a star-shaped cookie cutter or have little flags as a garnish for a cocktail.
Add a classic touch. Sprucing up classic items like mason jars, flowerpots, or coca-cola bottles with flowers or other decorations will give your party a nostalgic feel with a modern vibe.
Dress up everything. If you're having a BBQ or cookout casual elements are expected. If you're using plastic utensils wrap them with festive napkins or cute ribbon.
Keep the kids entertained. Have Americana themed games set up for the kids. Try a red, white, and blue scavenger hunt or musical chairs to patriotic music.
