Our Version of the All-American Cookout

Memorial Day signals the start of the long awaited grilling season. This weekend, break out your summer wardrobe and kick-off the start of summer by planning the perfect outdoors celebration! Incorporate stylish country Western accents like fringe, denim and rustic floral arrangements for a party that’s on trend.

Set the Stage With Mosaic:

Use Mosaic Linens as the perfect backdrop to your Memorial Day celebration. To dress your tables, we suggest using modern, clean prints for your table linen, just like our Penrose Burnout in Slate. Another on-trend option is mixing materials like our Natural Burlap linen accented with a crisp denim napkin. Complete your look with rustic floral arrangements and lots of candlelight and lanterns of all different shapes and sizes.

Add the Accents:

Incorporate stylish country Western accent pieces like animal skulls and cowhide rugs to complete the look. To dress your chairs, we suggest using rustic-chic chair treatments like Mosaic’s Natural Burlap Sash.

Dress the Part:

Whether you are planning on kicking-off the first weekend of summer by hosting a fabulous BBQ, or are planning a beach getaway, keep the dress code casual-chic. Add boho flair with bold statement pieces like Western inspired turquoise jewelry. For more Memorial Day outfit inspiration, visit InStyle.

Include Country BBQ Dishes:

We recommend delighting your guests’ taste buds with classic BBQ dishes like hotdogs and hamburgers. Elevate your hotdogs by cutting them into spirals. Not only does it make them crispier on the outside but it also allows all the condiments like relish and mustard to fall into the meaty grooves.  See Justin Chapple’s tips for creating the perfect spiraled hotdog on Food & Wine.

To accompany the gourmet hotdogs, serve updated versions of the all-American classic burger with these Barbecue-Glazed Turkey Burgers on toasted brioche buns. To complement the menu, incorporate BBQ elements into your drinks by creating a summer cocktail with smoky flavor. Offer your guests this updated version of a lime cocktail from Little Goat in Chicago that substitutes smoky Mezcal for the usual Gin. For more Mezcal cocktail recipes, visit Food & Wine.
