This centerpiece is both fun and easy. Here is what you need. Red white and blue candy (Most party stores will have colored candy in the wedding aisle) different sized cylinder vases and different sized flags (both of these items you can find in your local craft store this time of year)
Layer your color coated candy in the cylinder vases. Group vases together in threes for a better affect. Stick different sized flags in the vases and that's it! Fast, simple and fun.
3. Memorial Day Strawberries
Here is a great treat for your guests. Here is what you need. White chocolate wafers from your local craft store and blue colored sugar. If you can't find the sugar you can color white sugar with food coloring. Just a couple drops in your sugar bowl and move it around with your hands until all sugar is colored. Microwave the chocolate wafers 15 seconds at a time mixing after every 15 seconds until wafers are completely melted. Be careful not to overheat or you will have chalky fudge like chocolate that you can't use.
4. Red White and Blue Wind Socks
This is a simple way to decorate and fun to do with the kids. you will need wire and red, white and blue plastic table cloth from your local party store. Cut the table cloth into strips. Form the wire into a round circle shape. Fold each strip in half then thread over wire. Continue around the wire unitil it is of your desired fullness Soon you have a fun wind sock to take to the parade then hang at your BBQ.
