Memorial Day Celebration Planning, Ideas & Supplies

While summer might look a little different than we were expecting, we cannot forget that Memorial Day is quickly approaching. Whether you are celebrating with your immediate household or a group of close friends, bring out all the red, blue, and white decor you have and make the festivities a day to remember. To get you started, we gathered some of our favorite patriotic party supplies from star and stripes table decor to red and blue yard games. Stay safe and have fun!

How To Observe Memorial Day (Courtesy ofwww.usmemorialday.org)

The “Memorial” in Memorial Day has been ignored by too many of us who are beneficiaries of those who have given the ultimate sacrifice. Often we do not observe the day as it should be, a day where we actively remember our ancestors, our family members, our loved ones, our neighbors, and our friends who have given the ultimate sacrifice:
  • by visiting cemeteries and placing flags or flowers on the graves of our fallen heroes.
  • by visiting memorials.
  • by flying the U.S. Flag at half-staff until noon.
  • by flying the ‘POW/MIA Flag' as well (Section 1082 of the 1998 Defense Authorization Act).
  • by participating in a “National Moment of Remembrance“: at 3 p.m. to pause and think upon the true meaning of the day, and for Taps to be played.
  • by renewing a pledge to aid the widows, widowers, and orphans of our fallen dead, and to aid the disabled veterans.
