Memorial Day Weekend is a special time of the year where we can appreciate the countless men and women who have died while serving in the United States Military. Although this year’s Memorial Day Weekend might look different, here are a few ways to celebrate with family or friends:
Cooking food on the grill is a classic when it comes to celebrating any holiday, and with Memorial Day happening on May 25 this year, it’s a great way to usher in the summer. Whether it be marinated chicken or burgers and brats, keep your menu simple so that everyone is satisfied. Throw in a small appetizer, side of chips, beans, and salad, and, of course, dessert, and you’ve got yourself a four-course meal! If you are looking to share, set up a drive-by potluck where you and your friends can exchange your favorite and most mouth-watering recipes.
An outdoor kitchen or fire pit table creates the perfect landscape to host and bring the family together. Hosting with fire is an outdoor feature that is growing in popularity amongst homeowners. If you appreciate a comfy centerpiece, our Kenwood Linear Dining Table is what we would recommend for enjoying a dinner around the fire. An elevated Crystal Fire® Plus gas burner sits in the middle of the table while still providing plenty of space for a delicious meal.
Although celebrating may look different this year, there’s no stopping a creative go-getter in making the most of Memorial Day Weekend. After all, the backyard is a space where imagination can run wild. If camping is an annual tradition for you and your family, why not continue the tradition this year? Camping out in your backyard is a fun way to spend time together and create some lifelong memories. The Renegade fire pit serves as the perfect portable—and affordable—fire pit to have for an outdoor camping experience. Add a tent, grab some marshmallows for roasting, and you have yourself an easy and exciting weekend plan!
If camping isn’t your thing, there’s plenty more you can do to celebrate. Make your outdoor space dazzle with sticking to the classic red, white, and blue color theme associated with Memorial Day. Our Grey Stonefire fire pit table really complements a blue pattern and would make your Memorial Day decorations really pop. Do it yourself crafts, like paper pinwheels and cute utensil ribbons, or decorations such as banners and paper lanterns, are a few ideas to create your unique patriotic outdoor room.
As we celebrate Memorial Day Weekend, it is important to reflect on the significance of the national holiday. It is a day where we remember those who lost their lives while in the military service, making the ultimate sacrifice for their country. If you have been personally affected by someone who gave his or her life so we could live ours freely, we at the Outdoor GreatRoom Company thank you for his or her service.
In observance of the holiday, our headquarters at the Outdoor GreatRoom Company will be closed. We will be opened back up for service the following day.
