Memorial Day Party Ideas

Memorial Day Decorations to Remember

The solemn occasion of remembering our fallen troops on Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, has been an American tradition since the end of the Civil War. Interestingly enough, the United States marks both its beginning and end of summer, with patriotic holidays, patriotic party supplies, and festivities. Memorial Day traditionally kicks off the summer season, while Labor Day salutes its end. Fourth of July falls in the middle, encouraging Americans to display numerous patriotic decorations, all season long.  There are so many Memorial Day party supplies to choose from, many that can be recycled and used for the patriotic holidays to follow.


Use banners to boldly display your patriotic colors, remember a fallen soldier and declare your love of for the United States of America. Banners can be displayed indoors or outside, anchored with your choice of banner hangers.


Patriotic party danglers are an inexpensive way to decorate your Memorial Day party. Hang them from the ceiling, across window and door frames and even outside to sparkle in the sun throughout the day.


Columns are special decorations that can easily add a sense of importance to your Memorial Day remembrance celebration. Choose from a variety of styles in the classic red, white and blue or customize personalized, patriotic columns to express desired sentiments and emotion.  Columns can also be used in conjunction with festive patriotic balloons.

Memorial Day party ideas include gathering a group of people to place markers on the graves of fallen soldiers, participating in patriotic community events and getting together with family and friends in numerous ways. It is our privilege to enjoy the freedom secured by our troops, those brave men and women we honor, for their ultimate service to our country. God bless America!

Welcome friends to the party using our BBQ Bonanza Personalized Vinyl Banner.

Each of our banners is printed on heavy-duty, weather-resistant vinyl and can be used time and again.

If you’re worried about the weather, try one of our Easy-Up Canopies. The canopy stands 10’10” tall and is perfect for all your outdoor events. Plus, you can add a personalized imprint too. The white polyester canopy includes sturdy steel framework and folds away for easy storage in the included nylon carrying case.

Set a fun, summery scene with our Tiki Hut Topper over your buffet table or bar. The 55″ high x 56″ wide x 22″ deep hut is great for all your summer events. The metal framed hut comes with artificial thatching, hibiscus flowers, decorative garland, and hardware designed to attach the topper to tables or bars.

Use a Beach Ball Personalized Yard Sign to direct people to the party in your back yard. The fun, colorful sign looks great with your wording on it and comes with an H-stake for securing it in your yard.

The Shaded Elegance Umbrellas are a fantastic and lovely way to add some shade to the dining area of your party. The cloth umbrellas are 6 feet in diameter and are attached to a 7 foot wooden pole. They fit perfectly into the 11 inch by 2 foot high metal base. They’re available in an assortment of colors perfect for coordinating with your party decorations.

Add some luau flair to your Memorial Day party with our Bamboo and Seashell Tiki Torches. They are fun and stylish and if you add citronella candle to them they’ll keep unwanted flying guests away!

Decorate your tables with BBQ party table decorations. Cover the tables with red gingham plastic tablecovers. Use black or red bandannas for napkins/favors and wrap them around coordinating plastic cutlery to create cutlery bundles. Secure the bundles with barbed-wire garland. Spread a black bandanna over the middle of the table and add some beer mug gel candles to the middle as a centerpiece.

For tableware, use our BBQ Tableware Ensemble, which features a fun BBQ themed print and includes all the tableware and decorations you need for eight guests.

Socializing and playing simple games like cards and catch are a perfect way to spend time at your Memorial Day barbeque. We have some fun backyard carnival games that would be lots of fun too.

Kids will love the Duck Fishing Game and the Can Toss Game, which you can use at all your family events.

Patriotic Fun for a Memorial Day BBQ

BBQ-Kit-N-KaboodleMemorial Day is the kick off of summer and a perfect reason to party! This year Memorial Day is May 25th. Celebrate with your friends and family with a Memorial Day barbeque with a patriotic flair.

Invite guests to the party with the festive invitations from the BBQ Party Tableware Ensemble. It features a cow dressed up as a BBQ chef and space for you to write in your own party details.

Welcome guests to your party with a personalized BBQ Memories Custom Banner or a Festive Flag Custom Banner. These banners can be personalized with your own wording and are made of heavy-duty, weather-resistant vinyl with or without metal grommets and come in seven different sizes to fit you decorating needs.

Decorate for your party with festive patriotic decorations—streamers, garland, cutouts, and flags! (Check out our Patriotic Party TipZ for tons of ideas). Create a fantastic focal point with a Statue of Liberty and Uncle Sam standees. Large USA Patriotic Letters are also a fun way to spruce up your party room. For tons of fun, set up an Americana Photo Op Stand In. Guests can put their faces in the cutouts and take their picture like the famous American Gothic painting. It makes for fantastic keepsakes from the party.

Party wearables are a great way to brighten up the party and get guests in the fun-loving mood. For the patriotic, try American flag funtoos temporary tattoos, patriotic buttons and red white and blue star beads. Guests will crack up if you greet them at the door in a hamburger hat or giant chef hat.

Wearables make great favors but there’s other favors you can send guests home with so they’ll remember the fun of Memorial Day long after your party is over. For the BBQ theme, we suggest Beer Mug Candles or make-your-own aprons. For a more patriotic bent, try a jewel flag dog tag neckelace craft kit, patriotic bubbles, flag pins or patriotic votive candles.
