Skip the Picnic- Host a Memorial Day Garden Party!

Chelsea Pellegrino


You know the saying- April showers bring May flowers. Take advantage of the spring foliage and turn this year's Memorial Day celebration into a garden party!

It's a fresh take on the typical Memorial Day picnic. This red, white and blue garden party is perfect inspiration- from the floral decor, to the live musical entertainment. Check out the photos from Annie X Photographie.

Everything about this garden party is ideal for Memorial Day. With the help of a catering team and a waitstaff donned in cowboy attire, guests surely didn't go hungry! The mouth watering menu put a sophisticated twist on the usual picnic food. It included items like watermelon salad, bow-tie pasta and the ever so innovative s'mores on a spoon! Don't forget the cocktails, served in mason jars and topped with a classic paper straw. When the sun went down, the party atmosphere stayed alive with the help of a live band.
