May Long weekend

buntingThe countdown is on! Just mere hours before we can make a break for a weekend in the garden or favorite camping spot. That’s right its May long weekend! (Finally). Time to dust off your BBQ mitts and battle your neighbors for the title of King (or Queen) of grilled meats.

Summer is the theme this weekend and what better way to express your excitement then by serving your yummy treats on these Happy Days melamine plates. Shatter proof and cute as a button!

We all know the star of the show is your food but don’t forget to decorate. Fill the yard with lights for when the sun starts to set but the party is long from over. These super cute Popsicle lights from Berry red will really dress up your table in true summer style.

These cute ekoboo bamboo cups are colorful and Eco-friendly (better than any solo cup for sure). Perfect for your BBQ party, re-usable and better yet, won’t shatter if they get knocked over.

For when your party starts to wind down, it’s time to break out these summer inspired lawn chairs.

Perfect for relaxing after a long day of food and fun. Just pop them on the deck and look out onto the night sky and remember what this holiday is all about. Memorial Day is a time to remember all those brave men and women who gave their lives while serving our country. Whether you have lost a loved one, know someone who is serving or just love America, give thanks to those who are no longer with us. A toast to all those we have loved and lost and good luck to those not able to be home.
