Hayward, California (EastBayDaily) — Memorial Day is more than just a three-day weekend. It began as a day of observance to commemorate the fallen soldiers of the Civil War. By the 20th century Memorial Day has been extended to honor all Americans who have died in all wars while serving the United States Armed Forces. Memorial Day is a federal holiday observed annually in the United States on the last Monday of May which is typically the start of the summer vacation season. Memorial Day is a chance to start the summer out right, and what better way than with a backyard barbecue. It's time to enjoy the weather, lay by the pool (or on the beach) and celebrate the soldiers that sacrificed for our country with friends and family.
Outdoor patio furniture is a must-have for Memorial Day celebrations. Frugah carries a number of patio products that will make an outdoor living space stand out and more comfortable. Fun products like hammocks and zero gravity chairs provide fun and relaxing seating for patios and backyards. Having a pop up canopy to provide shade and an attractive shelter for he backyard will aid in protecting everyone from the sun. Since it is the start of the summer, sunburns are very common and a cooling and protective canopy or sun shade sail is a great option for patios. If the Memorial Day party is in need of seating for your cocktail area, Frugah carries several contemporary and modern adjustable bar stools that add a decorative flair to the bar. Add a decorative umbrella like the Frugah tiki umbrella if the party has a luau theme or tropical look and feel. The outdoor fire pit offers a great conversational spot for relaxing by a warm fire in the evening while roasting marshmallows. Or enjoy the evening while lighting up the garden and patio with solar powered garden lights. Don't forget the kids! A trampoline and enclosure will provide the little ones several hours of backyard fun. Frugah carries several models and sizes at a great price.
Whether the Memorial Day get together is small or large, the key is to commemorate the fallen soldiers, have fun and enjoy the company of friends and family.
