Memorial Day is the perfect holiday for hosting an outdoor party for your friends and family. This year, you purchased a Softub so you already know that you will be hosting and you have the perfect centerpiece for your party, but what else should you do?
You will want your Memorial Day Party to feel special so put out some decorations. The classic red, white, and blue color scheme is perfect for Memorial Day and is so easy to pull off. This time of year white daisies or red and white carnations are super easy to find and very inexpensive. Pick up a bouquet of flowers, grab a couple of mason jars and some blue ribbon. You can make a few great flower arrangements to set around at your party. To really give it that Memorial Day feel you could grab some small American flags to add to your arrangements. Hang a few red, white, and blue paper lanterns or a banner and you have just transformed your outdoor space into a party.
Yes, we know you already plan to use your Softub as your main source of entertainment and we can assure you that it will be a hit. But, you may want to think about some other entertainment options to set up near your Softub so that everyone can mingle and talk no matter which activity they are participating in. Lawn games like horseshoes, croquet, and ladder ball are all great options. You might also want to strategically set up a few chairs in circles or half circles for your guests to just sit and chat.
No Memorial Day party is complete without great food. We suggest keeping it simple. Fruits, veggies, chips, hamburgers and hot dogs are all great summertime foods that everyone loves. They are also great options for a party where people might be grabbing food throughout the party.
You will want to set the mood or atmosphere for your party right from the start. Music and lighting are two of the best ways to set the mood. Even if your party will be starting during daylight hours you might want to add additional light sources. Tiki torches or hanging strands of lights keep the party going into the night. Throw on some of your favorite music in the background and you have set the mood for the perfect party.
We know you will love hosting a Memorial Day party around your Softub and hey if you don’t have a Softub yet, it’s not too late. There is virtually no prep work when installing a Softub so come pick one up today and be ready in time for your Memorial Day party.
