Fun & Fabulous Memorial Day Celebrations
For many people, Memorial Day weekend signals the beginning of summer, and what better excuse for a party? Here's how to make your Memorial Day party one to remember, and be sure to contact us Astro Jump of Chattanooga TN
for any party supplies you need.
Make some all-American fare
It's time to fire up the grill and make some classic American foods like hot dogs, burgers and ribs. Mix things up by going California style with guacamole and chips, or celebrate Hawaiian-style with poke and kalua pork.
Drink around America
If you're serving beer, choose craft beers from different regions of the country - like Chicago's Goose Island, California's Sierra Nevada or Atlanta's SweetWater brew. Better still, ask your guests to bring a six-pack of their favorite out-of-state craft beer. You might just find a new favorite!
Decorate to Perfection
Show your patriotic side with plenty of red, white and blue, and don't forget to look for stars and stripes. You can find them on anything from table cloths to napkins or even iced sugar cookies. String red, white and blue fairy lights in trees and bushes to add a cool glow after the sun goes down. If you have plants with red, white and blue flowers, give them center stage as your table decoration. Remember, Memorial Day is intended for thanking all those who died protecting our country, so if you're flying an American flag, it should fly at half-staff until noon.
Don't Forget the Kids
An inflatable bounce house from our extensive inventory at Astro Jump of Chattanooga TN is a great way to keep the kids entertained for hours as your afternoon BBQ transitions into evening. Even better, while the kids are busy jumping, you get to relax! If you have a pool and it's warm enough for swimming, take shifts as the lifeguard on duty. You can also have children decorate their own placemats with red, white and blue crayons or markers.
Plan Fun Party Games
Print two copies of a map of the US and cut out each state into jigsaw-like pieces. The first team to reassemble the entire US wins! Of course, you shouldn't forget classic games like horseshoe or frisbee, but what about "pin the top hat on Abraham Lincoln"? Think outside the box to keep everyone amused, young and old.
Get Everyone Home Safely
If you're serving alcohol at your party, you want to make sure no one goes home intoxicated. Rent a van to take local guests home or use Uber to help your party guests make it home safely. If someone's had too much to drink to drive, insist that they hand over their keys to you - they'll thank you in the morning.
