How to Host the Ultimate Memorial Day Party

Memorial Day Weekend is the perfect time to kick off the summer with a great party for family and friends! We’re able to relax and enjoy the company, food and fun this long weekend brings. When it comes to the party planning, things can get overwhelming when trying to remember every small detail. To lessen your stress, we’ve put together a few tips on how to host the ultimate Memorial Day party!


What’s a party without a theme? There’s only one theme that should be used for every Memorial Day party and that is stars and stripes, of course! Mix this theme with the use of the colors red, white and blue and your party will be a hit. Plates, cups and decorations are among the many elements that should coordinate with your theme. When these details are in harmony, your party will look professionally planned and well put together! You’ll be setting the standards high for your guests’ future parties.

Food and Drinks

It’s simple–food is the most important detail of any event. With that being said, we suggest keeping the menu easy on you, while still appeasing to your guests’ appetites. Bring out the grill and serve up summer’s favorite items: hamburgers and hot dogs! Add in some grilled veggies and even some grilled fruits for a delicious way to celebrate the holiday.

Along with food, serving ice cold beverages is important for many reasons. It’s finally time to bring out that large cooler, fill it with some ice and add Absopure’s refreshing Spring Water, so your guests can stay hydrated in the summer sun. Want to add some bubbles and flavor to the mix? With flavors like Lime and Blackberry Pomegranate Twist, Mountain Valley Sparkling Water will do the trick! Don’t forget, with Absopure’s delivery service you can get refreshments delivered right to your door. A helpful benefit, especially around the holidays!


The last challenge you’ll have to tackle is keeping your guests entertained. There are plenty of ways to do this, but we’ve rounded up some of the best for a Memorial Day party! Lawn games are a must-have during the summer months. Giant Jenga and corn hole are two games that everyone can join in on, no matter how tall, small, young or old your guests may be. If you want to go the extra mile for the kiddos at the party, rent an obstacle course or a bounce house to be sure they have a fun time! The greatest way to end your party is with sweet s’mores and a bonfire. Light up some sparklers, we’re sure your party will be one for the books.
