Memorial Day Party

The perfect way to kick off summer is a Memorial Day Party.  I have a closet (storage unit really) with tons of props and accessories for my client parties, but I am more relaxed at home.  I shop my house for things I can use outside and pull together a table with things I have collected over the years. 

 I made Strawberry Lemonade for my non-alcoholic beverage.

My herbs were the perfect decoration for the table

I just love my mason jars.  Fun straws with flags add
a special touch.

Cookies are a great topper for cupcakes.
These are homemade and my kids decorated them.

I pulled out an antique quilt for a tablecloth

The main course!  Chicken wings, smoked sausage and
steak kabobs.

Fresh corn from the farmer's market.

I just love my hamburger and hot dog
salt and pepper shakers! Don't you?

Fun cupcakes with toppers I made for my daughter
to handout to her friends.

I also made homemade ice cream and we used an old fashioned hand crank freezer.  Those pictures are coming soon.  Hope everyone had a great weekend.  Leave a comment and tell me how you celebrated the holiday.

Happy Summer!
