Patriotic Decoration Ideas
During a Memorial Day or Fourth of July party, there are usually several smaller parties going on at once. In one area, the cooks are grilling meat, preparing side dishes and setting the table. In the pool area, games of Marco Polo and diving contests are taking place. Lawn chairs are being setup in the yard for late night fireworks.Those needing a break from the heat are lounging indoors with a cool beverage.
