Here’s a summary of the tips from the clip. Take them and make them your own.
Celebrity Trends Turned Into Memorial Day Ideas:
1. Champagne & Fresh Fruit
Pierce & Keely Brosnan, two of my all-time favorite clients, spend a ton of time in Hawaii, so they always have fresh flowers and fresh fruit at their parties. For a Memorial Day brunch, take a bunch of fruit and set up a juice bar based on red, white and blue. If the kids will be participating, keep the alcohol separate. The adults can always add it in to customize their drinks. And what’s a holiday brunch without champagne? Use straws in mini champagne bottles.
2. Super Festive Metallics
Sofia Vergara is huge with metallics, and we went all out with silver and gold for her holiday event. Personally, I think that you can never have too many sequins or bling! For Memorial Day, silver really works well with red, white and blue. It’s okay to bring in metallics. You can even just use metallic trays.
3. Simple Instead Of Fancy
Britney Spears is totally down home and casual. You don’t have to be fancy on Memorial Day. Condiments that double as a centerpiece are perfect. You don’t just have to have paper or plastic plates. An alternative is to use reusable plastic sandwich containers lined with wax paper.
Kelly Preston is big on supporting charities and being environmentally conscious! Stay away from disposable plastic and go eco-friendly with bamboo. It’s really not particularly expensive. Bamboo steamers are very functional. Take off the top and put flowers in the base for a great centerpiece. Instead of paper napkins, use bandanas that are red, white and blue. They are super inexpensive if you order them online and reusable for maybe even a different purpose. Throw them in the wash – no prob!

5. Animal Lovers
Katherine Heigl is huge with her dogs. They have to be part of her event. For Memorial Day, invite the neighbors over with their pets. Have a pet dress up station stocked with a tiara, sunglasses and other fun props. Take photos and share them on Instagram. You can also incorporate into your event a snack bar or buffet for the animals.
Jennifer Love Hewitt had us plan a Halloween party for Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. She was all about the kids and the candy bar. Stick with red, white and blue candies for Memorial Day. If you’re tired of candy, just go all bubble gum or all chocolate and throw in some red, white and blue sprinkles. I have an incredible sweet tooth, so I would take any of the above!
Big Take Away – Inexpensive Ideas
Every celebration deserves a dose of extravagance, but high quality doesn’t necessarily translate into high price. Take these ideas and incorporate them into your party budget in whatever way works for you. What do you have around the house that is red, white and blue? Use what you have before even thinking about going out to buy!
