Memorial Day weekend is almost here, and we are making all the plans for a Memorial Day Weekend Lunch celebration.
Can you believe we are already celebrating Memorial Day? This year is truly going by so fast. With all the chaos that has been going on over here, from moving to a new home to the end of school, we are keeping things simple this year. How are we celebrating? We are celebrating with a Memorial Day Weekend lunch by the pool.
Include all things refreshing and light.
Since we are having our little celebration during lunch, it is a must to keep the menu light and refreshing. I can’t do a lot of heavy foods when the temperatures are scolding like they are here right now in Louisiana. How do you keep it light and refreshing? Fruits have got to be included! We opted with strawberries and blueberries because of the color scheme, but you can add whatever fruits you want.
You also don’t want to have anything too sweet. These kids plan to get a lot of energy out in the pool! Sugar cookies and even cute patriotic skewers with fruit and marshmallows are a perfect option. We also love to include sherbets and popsicles. There is also something about a key lime pie that makes for a refreshing and tart dessert.
BBQ chicken is up.
When you are outdoors, you have got to make time for a little BBQ! An easy option for a Memorial Day Weekend lunch is BBQ chicken tenders. They are easy for the kids to pick up and eat and are normally a win for all. We usually will do a few hamburgers and hot dogs too. Nothing wrong with a little bit of a mix.
Paper goods that are up for the task.
Lastly, is setting up the table. First off, we are doing all of this outdoors. There will not be many glass options for this reason. Well because of that and the fact that majority of the guests are little ones. You can still have things looking nice when glass isn’t the main serve ware. What about the paper products? Glad you asked.
I am obsessing over these Hudsonest’s paper napkins. They are perfect for any occasion, especially for our Memorial Day Weekend lunch by the pool. They triple-ply paper napkins come in three different sizes. The designs are limited editions, with new designs coming out four times a year. So the range stays small and there’s always something new to look forward to. Luxurious color and design add pleasure whether reconnecting with friends and family, or just making the everyday a little nicer.
As you can see, they will hold for those little wet hands after a splash in the pool.
