Memorial Day Weekend Plans

Memorial Day Weekend Plans

Posted by Rachel Parcell on

The pool's open, the kids are out of school, the weather is warm and perfect... it's Memorial Day Weekend! The first unofficial weekend of the summer season is almost here. Our plans for Memorial Day weekend include swimming, grilling, relaxing, and playing outside with the kids.

Patio Season...

I love making a gorgeous table setting for holidays. I used all new RP Home items and these gorgeous vintage drinking glasses. Our Printed Melamine Dinner Plates and Printed Melamine Salad Plates are perfect for outdoor dining. They're elevated, durable, AND kid-friendly, so you don't have to worry about them breaking! The plates are complemented by the Sage Printed Linen Napkins, and Raffia Napkin Rings. And we can't forget about the star of this table setting-- the Large Wicker Basket. It is one of the most stunning centerpieces when filled with flowers, greenery, fruit, or all of the above! The possibilities are endless! 

What's on the Menu...

Mini lemon poundcake berry trifle dessert cup on table outside

I have not one, but TWO ridiculously tasty recipes for you to make for your Memorial Day Weekend festivities! 
Chicken Caprese on RP Summer 2022 Home plate with salad and bread

Grilling is a MUST on Labor Day Weekend. Burgers and hotdogs are always great, but why not switch it up with something a little different? I decided to make Chicken Caprese. It's easy, delicious and makes for the perfect summer night dinner! To see how I made it, click here.


Mini lemon pound cake berry trifle cup desserts

For dessert, I'll be making these cute mini trifle cups. This dessert is so good and ALMOST too cute to eat! To see how I made them, click here.


Let the Games Begin...

I love spending time outside, and I love getting my kids outside and off their screens even more! To keep the kids busy and having fun, I stocked up on fun outdoor summer games. I got croquet, spike ball (I think this will be Bear's new favorite), ring toss, and corn hole. All of these games will be great all summer long and I found them on Amazon!

I hope you found a recipe, home item, outfit or activity on this blog that fits right in with your Memorial Day Weekend plans! Have a safe and wonderful holiday, everyone!
