Presentation Pointers:

  1. Show your patriotic spirit by posting smaller American flags all over your backyard, and hanging red, white and blue streamers. If you want to go bigger cover the backyard with red, white and blue balloons too.
  2. If you are setting up tables in the backyard, make sure to have a traditionally American centerpiece, like a baseball, a picture of Uncle Sam or a Barbie.
  3. If the weather is nice enough, gather your guests to attend the local Memorial Day parade. This is a perfect way to show support for our troops.
