Memorial Day Weekend Gathering

Hope you’re getting ready for a long weekend and the official beginning of summer!  If you or your friends are hosting a cookout, here are some fun ideas to get you started.
If you are the host you’ll need some cute styling ideas, right?!  Above, are some easy and inexpensive suggestions using wrapped vases, colorful flowers, and table cloth painted with flag stripes.  Keep the drinks icy cold and easy to grab, in a pretty garden urn.
Embellish other necessities with crafty pinwheels, flags, or umbrellas.
Need a delicious side dish to bring to a pot luck?  Try one of these easy recipes for potato or pasta salad, from Kraft.
Nothing better than a sweet treat that is light, and pretty too.  Here, 2 ideas for strawberries, and of course, everyone’s favorite cupcake!  Have fun celebrating Memorial Day!
