Memorial Day weekend is often celebrated as the unofficial kick off to the summer season. If you’re anything like us, you’ll be spending the majority of your three-day weekend outside, relishing in good food and good company. If you’re in need of fun plans and/or tasty recipes, below is a quick guide to making the most of your Memorial Day weekend. Enjoy!

PLAN – Use some of your free time, and extra energy outside of the office to put together a holiday picnic for friends, family or even your neighbors! Impress your guests by following our Memorial Day Picnic Styling post from last year, which is super simple AND oh-so-gorgeous.


INDULGE – Bon Appetit knew what they were doing when they put together an ongoing recipe list featuring only the best food and drink for Memorial Day. No muss, no fuss. Just the way we like it!


THANK – Memorial Day is also a time to celebrate, honor and remember those who have lost their lives fighting for our country and independence. Show your gratitude by thanking those who currently serve or who have served our country.

If you’re utilizing the long weekend to plan your Veridian dream home, be sure to check out our Design Studio and furnished model hours, as select models will be open during the weekend and both our Design Studio and furnished models will be closed on Monday, May 28th in observance of Memorial Day.
