Memorial Day is right around the corner and these Amazon Essentials are sure to help you host a party for the record books! With everything from decorations and serving platters to chalkboard labels for mason jars, you’ll be throwing an unforgettable Memorial Day Celebration in no time!
I’ve always thought that the hardest part of hosting is the planning. The day of the party tends to be so fun and lively that you forget about the stress of the morning, but planning a party is no small task. That’s why I’ve created this list of 17 items to help you host the BEST Memorial Day Party ever!
You might have already thought to buy some of these items, or maybe you already own some, but all of them will prove useful. Whether you’re hosting a crowd or having a family grill night, you’ll be ready to celebrate!
So, you may be wondering why I chose these tiered platters instead of one beautiful, simple serving dish. The main reason is that these tiered platters are so much more versatile!
You can remove the serving plates from the rack and use them individually or place them side by side on a table. They’re also fancy enough to dress up for entertaining guests, yet still casual enough for hosting friends. Here are a couple of my favorite recipes to serve on these platters…
This is one of those items that you’ll get so much more use out of than you’d realize! It’s a wonderful serving platter for Memorial Day celebrations and any other outdoor party, but I promise you’ll be using it year-round. You can bring this nifty serving platter to tailgates, potlucks, and even Superbowl parties to keep your dip nice and cold.
Words cannot express how helpful these little chalkboard stickers are! Mason Jars in general make really good glasses for entertaining since they don’t break easily and they’re pretty inexpensive. On top of that, being able to label glasses really helps folks keep track of their drink and it lessens the amount of trash to clean up at the end of the night. Here are my two favorite drinks to serve for Memorial Day Parties…
If you don’t own a Crock Pot, I highly recommend that it’s the next kitchen tool you buy! I use my Crock Pot on almost a daily basis, but it’s also my go-to for hosting parties. If you’re feeding a crowd, the Crock Pot will allow you to save on oven space and you don’t have to stand there babysitting it all day.
Crock Pots are also ideal for serving food to a crowd! You can simply leave the setting on WARM and place it on the serving table so that food will stay hot as people serve themselves. Here are my absolute favorite Crock Pot recipes, which are all terrific options for Memorial Day…
Memorial Day Decorations and More Party Essentials
Now that we’ve talked about all those helpful cooking and serving tools, now we can get into the decorations and party essentials! Below you’ll find a variety of items, from decorations, plates, and napkins to outdoor games and citronella candles.
From my experience, all of these items will be useful when you’re throwing a party. All of these items can also be reused for other occasions, even the decorations can be packed up and used again on the Fourth Of July!
