Spring has sprung and it’s time to dust off your grill! Backyard parties are a great way to socialize and enjoy the warm weather. Memorial Day is a great opportunity to host a backyard barbecue. Memorial Day is a classic American holiday honoring the men and women who have served in the US Armed Forces. What is more American than eating hot dogs and hamburgers in your own backyard?
Here are some tips for planning a great Memorial Day themed party.

Giving away party favors are a great way for your guests to remember your party and will encourage them to come to your next event.
Food and drink
One of the most important aspects of hosting a party is the food! Because this is a casual party you want to serve casual food that is easy to eat. Hamburgers, hot dogs, and corn on the cob are great foods for a backyard barbecue. You can also involve your guests by making it a potluck! Ask your guests to bring side dishes like casseroles, macaroni and cheese, and salads.
Serve chips and dip or cheese and crackers while your guests are waiting for the meat to finish grilling.
Interactive games like Giant Jenga are a great way to get your guests to socialize and have fun.
To ensure that you have enough food, beverages, and party favors consider asking your guests to RSVP. This may seem a little formal for a backyard barbecue, but it is important to know how many people will be attending.
