Summer solstice isn’t for another month, but the unofficial kickoff to summer is upon us: Memorial Day weekend. And with the reverence it represents comes, in most cases, a long weekend, warmer weather and an excuse to gather with friends and family. Whether you call it a BBQ, grillout, pot luck, or block party, chances are you are gathering at some point over Memorial Day weekend to grill outside.
Here at Coldwell Banker we like to dream big. So we’ve created the ultimate backyard bash with a little help from one of our favorite inspiration sources, Pinterest. Read on for some fun backyard party ideas and choose from the best recipes and decorations to kick off summer in style.
