It’s just about Memorial Day Weekend and I LOVE a long, festive holiday weekend. Don’t you? This one especially because it always marks the beginning of summer time and that means… wedding season!! If you haven’t already planned your backyard barbecue, what are you waiting for? This is just a little inspiration for a fun filled gathering. First things first, what comes to mind when you think of Memorial Day? Shortcake? Maybe not BUT I love the idea! Probably because I love shortcake and the display of this is adorable. The end product…delicious.
Your decor and table tops are going to be one of the focuses of the whole party, as everyone will see it while they snack. Table settings make a huge difference in the look of an event and are a thrill to put together! So many little elements to piece together like plates, silverware, napkins, chargers, fun details, runners, you get the point.The other focus… the food, of course! If you don’t know by now, the display of the food is almost as important as the taste. And believe me, it sure can make it taste even better if it looks good. Out come the mason jars and of course you’ve got yourself an adorable display of individual servings to grab and go.With the right lighting scheme you can have your party going all night long. Globe lights and candles offer the perfect mood lighting for a party like this one and a nice, ambient glow for a nice lounge on a patio.
