For this Memorial Day, I was inspired by effortless long weekend barbecues that last all day and night with a classic Americana spin, creating a cocktail menu based on my childhood classics and pouring red, white, and blue drinks. Everything is easy to snack on finger food, while the cocktails cover every drinker’s palette. I partnered with Crate and Barrel to style my balcony for the party, and kept the look classic but modern. Patriotic flags and bistro lights were hung across my balcony, and little details like the red and white flecked napkins to match the red striped straws continued the Americana theme. I hope you enjoy your long weekend, please share how you’re going to celebrate Memorial Day in the comments below!
