Host a Fun and Flavorful Memorial Day BBQ

Summer cookout season officially kicks off Memorial Day weekend. Hosting a BBQ? We’ve gathered some recipes to make the menu monumental. Plus, we found a few DIY crafts to set the party mood.

Easy Fruit Flag Dessert

“All you need is the fresh fruit, a big tray, and some little pretzels covered in yogurt or white chocolate. Just spread those out in rows, alternating with the red berries, and group all the blueberries together in the corner. And presto: a light, easy, festive dessert that will be the hit of any patriotic party.” – Corey

Grilled Apricot Chicken

“The sauce you brush on the chicken as it grills is beyond simple and so delicious. It turns a couple chicken thighs (which we’re new to even using) into one magical and mouth-watering meal.” – Holly

Antipasto Skewers

“Delicious ingredients all together in one little appetizer skewer. These Antipasto Skewers are a super easy, make-ahead, grab-and-go party snack!” – Valerie

Sticky Sweet Pork Burgers with Peach Salsa

“It may seem like a weird combination, but this peach salsa is going to blow your mind. The sweet and tangy flavors with just a touch of heat are perfection against the sweet bar-b-q sauce. Like even more heat? Leave the white ribs of the pepper intact when dicing for even more bite.” – Stacey

11 Memorial Day DIY’s Everyone at The Party Will Love

The Best German Potato Salad

Knock Ya Naked Brownies

“Well now, I’m here to tell you that you are safe from brownie’s devious, hidden nature. No clothes will be removed without permission. But ole gooey does bring a little party wherever it goes. A little party made just for your mouth.” – Brandie

Outrageous Lemon Lovers Trifle

“This outrageous lemon lovers trifle is a dessert filled with citrus deliciousness. It starts with a lemony pound cake that’s brushed with a lemon laced simple syrup. The pound cake is layered with fluffy lemon cream and whipped cream then crowned with lemon slices. It’s outrageously delicious!” – Melissa
