Memorial Day Party

What sometimes gets forgotten about Memorial Day is that it’s dedicated to remembering those who died serving our country.  So first and foremost, a sincere thank you to our service men and women as well as our veterans.

But, as American culture would have it, it’s also one heck of a time to throw an outdoor dinner party that your friends and family will never forget!

My friend Amanda from Glitter and Spice and I styled the most adorable Memorial Day dinner party to help celebrate the holiday, the warm weather, and the start of summer for a few of our close friends! It was the absolute epitome of patriotic with red, white, and blue everywhere, plus a few bursts of gold!

To create a classy and patriotic look, we started with a simple white table cloth and adorned it with a navy and white striped runner, the cutest gold sparkly chargers, white beaded place settings and festive red napkins. The T Shop designed a beautiful arrangement of red and white flowers in our favorite gold vases from The Shabby Chic Party to pull the entire look together!

To make the evening extra special, we dressed up in our Sunday best provided by Kate Spade and Dry Bar and Blushington designed our hair and makeup. It was the perfect (almost) summer evening filled with lots of laughs, good friends, and delicious food!
