Memorial Day is right around the corner, literally it’s this weekend so you need to perk up and get into party mode. However, you might not want to throw a crazy party where it’s all about staying up till dawn, you’d rather have a quiet and relaxing evening with your friends. That’s where this post comes in. We’ve put together decor ideas, a dip recipe, and a drink recipe that will set the perfect mood for you and your guests to ring in the summer.
Find a large tin bucket and a large round slab of wood. Sand the wood then stain it a darker shade and apply polyurethane for protection. Buy three or four outdoor rugs that are able to overlap and lay next to each other without clashing colors. Place the tin bucket on top of the rugs then the slab of wood on top of the bucket to form a cute and easy outdoor table. If you have a patio with a roof over it, use the beams to wrap twinkle light around the patio so that you can have a candle and twinkle lit atmosphere!
The Dip (from www.inspiredbycharm.com)
Out-Of-This-World Corn Dip
3 cans sweet corn with diced peppers, drained
1 can chopped green chilies, drained
1 can chopped jalapeno peppers
1/2 cup green onion, chopping
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
16 ounce shredded sharp cheddar cheese
2-3 bags scoop corn tortilla chips
In a large bow, mix all the ingredients except the chips. Chill for two hours or as long as overnight to really let the ingredients come together. Serve with the scoops.
The Drink (from www.damndelicious.net)
Raspberry Limoncello Prosecco
3 cups Prosecco, chilled
1 cup limoncello liqueur, chilled
1 cup fresh raspberries
Fresh mint leaves
Freeze the raspberries to use as the ice cubes for the drink. In a large pitcher, mix together the Prosecco and limoncello liqueur then pour into glasses. Plop in the raspberries and mint leaves for garnish.
How are you preparing for your Memorial Day weekend party?
