The unofficial kickoff to summer is right around the corner, so dust off the barbecue and get out the party supplies to create a great first day of the season! Memorial Day is one of the favorite times of year – it means school is almost out of session, vacation time is coming up and spending time at the pool or beach is a daily or weekly occurrence. If you want to throw a fun and memorable Memorial Day party, there are plenty of wholesale party supplies you can purchase to ensure the day goes perfectly. Here are a few fun ways to celebrate the holiday:
Send out invitations – Since Memorial Day is the last weekend in May, send your invitations out now so guests have plenty of time to make arrangements. Two quick ways to hand out invitations include sending them through email, known as Evites. These are fun because you can personalize the look and style of the invitation to complement your Memorial Day party. If the party is going to be close friends and family, you can hand them out in themed holders, such as miniature sand pails.
Purchase party supplies – Aside from Fourth of July, Memorial Day is a holiday dressed in red, white and blue. Use these three colors throughout the party, such as white plastic tablecloths with red and blue napkins. Streamers, balloons and paper banners are simple ways to decorate for this festive holiday. Since Memorial Day is usually a kickoff for summer, blow up a few beach balls and place them around the yard to create a fun ambiance.
Create a menu – A grill is one of the most important features of a Memorial Day party, so create a list of foods to grill. Hot dogs, hamburgers, kebabs and sausages are easy to make in large quantities and provide plenty of variety to your guests and their dietary needs. Side dishes such as nachos, coleslaw, potato salad or watermelon slices are the perfect complement to the Memorial Day fare. For dessert, keep the red, white and blue theme going – fruit salad or shortcake with strawberries, blueberries and whipped cream is perfect!
Order your plastic plates and cups as soon as possible so you have most of what you need leading up to the Memorial Day party. Purchasing party supplies wholesale means you save money while ensuring you have enough serving supplies and decorations for a fun, memorable start to summer!
