Lest we not forget the reason for Memorial Day and celebrate with respect. Memorial Day, observed on the last Monday in May, was established as a national holiday in 1971 as a way to pay tribute to American military personnel who lost their lives in war. Initially, Memorial Day was known as Decoration Day and continues the tradition of observing military sacrifice, which has its roots in the post-Civil War era.
A national moment of remembrance always takes place at 3 p.m. local time, which is something to consider incorporating into your gathering.
Covid has us ready to get back to normal and have a real Memorial Day celebration. Restrictions have been lifted and relaxed but make sure to communicate with your guests ahead of time to set expectations. The CDC recommends putting out bottles of hand sanitizer and wiping down surfaces frequently. Save yourself from having to do dishes by serving food with single-use utensils, cups, and plates.
Parties need decorations but there is no need to go overboard, just add a little charm. All you need is a string of lights. Hang lights from gutters or fences or wrap them around trees and deck railings. Use a timer so you do not have to remember to turn them on around dusk.
American flags are a nice touch. Another idea, if you have red, white, and blue decorations, you can add a nice touch to bandanas, wicker baskets, or vintage lanterns. Place miniature American flags in bud vases for delightful, simple centerpieces.
