Best Ways to Prepare CrabMay 19, 2022
Memorial Day is coming with the holiday kicking off the summer season. Why not get it started right with a party over the long weekend? You’ll have sunshine, loved ones, and great food.
Don’t worry about being overwhelmed preparing all the food because you can get help from The Crab Shack. Below are a few tips to get your party-ready.
We recommend minimizing the number of flags. Instead, incorporate the stars and stripes with a subtle approach using placemats and banners. The red, white, and blue theme can be displayed on plates, napkins, and flowers for the dining table.
Stringing lights will give your party a warm feeling for the coming summer. We suggest arranging them over chairs and tables for an ambient glow that will bring good cheer during the meal.
If your Memorial Day party will be close to the water, bring some floating toys and themed rafts to add fun to the festivities. Hosting the event in your backyard gives you the opportunity to set up games like horseshoes and volleyball. On a hot day, break out the sprinkler and squirt guns to keep the kids cool.
Sports fans may want to have a major league baseball game displayed on the big screen. However, what will actually set the mood is music. You can use Apple Music or Spotify to get playlists of classic songs that most everyone knows are upbeat and fun.
Food Ideas and Catering
Classic American food is hard to beat for Memorial Day. Your menu will be a success if you focus on BBQ-type foods and terrific sides. Some guests may be more health-conscious, so also have some seafood and vegetarian fare available. Be sure to also have snacks and drinks available before dinnertime.
The Crab Shack has a catering team that can give you a hand by preparing some traditional Memorial Day favorites for you. Check out their menus for their Crofton and Edgewater locations to get some ideas.
