Memorial Day is officially TOMORROW and I’m here to tell you the absolute must haves for everyones favorite end of May holiday!
Just in case you’re a last minute person like ME, here’s some suggestions for how to make your Memorial Day party be the best. one. YET!
Check out our suggestions for your top 10 LGBTQ Memorial Day must haves to have the party of your LIFE!
10. Finger Foods
From deviled eggs, onion rings, and bacon-wrapped meatballs, you should have loads of finger foods that won’t smear any drag queens lipstick. They’re easy to munch and will make you feel like you’re eating less, when you’re eating more!
09. Great Environment
Without question, you need to have the cutest set up for your Memorial Day BBQ! You haven’t done it if you don’t post about it on Instagram, so let’s make sure all of those photos are gorgeous and not in a bunker. (Sorry Kimmy Schmidt!)
08. Corn on the Cob
Okay, I’m not back tracking about smearing lipstick- but you literally cannot have a BBQ with some delicious corn on the cob. Whether you glaze it with butter, mayonnaise, or cheese – the cob is always a win!
07. The Best Playlist
Any Holiday calls for music…and it’s likely you’re drinking anyway. Time to bust out your best moves with a great playlist. Don’t keep it too current though, you definitely need to add some Britney Spears to your day. This is America after all!
What’s a party without some sweets?! Anything Americana themed would be perfect for honoring our vets!
05. Side Dishes
Whether you go for a homemade Mac and Cheese, beans, potatoes, cole slaw, or whatever your heart desires – make sure that you make enough for your guests! Jesus! I’m starving!
If you can sell me a great Veggie Slider, awesome. Until then, I suggest going with some good ole’ Grade-A beef! Topped with an American Flag decoration, of course.
03. Cute Outfit
You know your friends are secretly judging. Make them hate on your newest Romphim or strut in your American Flag speedo.
Even if you aren’t a drinker, don’t bore your guests! Time to get some great cocktails and get into the theme of your Memorial Day Party. Check out Delish for some of the best cocktail recipes!
01. Designated Drivers
The last thing you want at the end of a wonderful party is to be locked up for a DUI! Call a ride share like Uber or Lyft – it’s even cheaper when you pool with others! This is absolutely not a paid advertisement – it’s really necessary!
