Memorial Day Ideas

Last Updated on

Memorial Day is known as the unofficial start of summer — the long weekend is filled with cookouts, pool parties, and celebrations with family and friends. Whether you’re hosting a Memorial Day barbecue or attending someone else’s party this holiday, we’ve got 3 fresh ideas that will make your Memorial Day weekend way more delicious this year.

Memorial Day Ideas

1. A red, white & blue centerpiece is a must.

Festive table décor will help set the Memorial Day party scene. A patriotic fruit arrangement makes a unique holiday centerpiece that everyone will enjoy — it not only looks beautiful, it’s also a tasty snack for guests.

We suggest: Red, White & Blueberry Bouquet™

2. Pick a no-bake, gourmet dessert.

A box of chocolate Dipped Fruit™ is a simple and sweet Memorial Day dessert idea. You can stop by your local Edible Arrangements® store to grab a box on your way to a cookout this weekend or, if you’re the party host, have a couple boxes delivered at home to make things even easier!

We suggest: Red, White & Blue Fruit Truffles®

3. Celebrate the start of summer with the season’s freshest fruits!

Is there anything more summery than fresh watermelon and kiwi?! Serve up these refreshing fruit favorites at your Memorial Day cookout to kick off the season deliciously.

We suggest: Watermelon Kiwi Summer-tini™
