Memorial Day Party!

I think before we get into the fun, we should all remember what Memorial Day is.... beyond a day off of work and stuffing our faces with fantastic BBQ!....

 You all must know by now my strong obsession with kabobs! I love how they put some fun touches on the ends! Just use a round hole punch and glue two circles together on the end! Source

Pop Rock cookies! How silly would these be (you know, the candy that "pops/crackles" in your mouth when you eat it?  Cookie edges are covered in pop rock and sprinkles... yum!  Source and tutorial

 I've seen a lot of dipped strawberries, but the ones done as a loose interpretation of a flag are my favs! (thanks Brittanie for the find!) Source

And lastly, pay tribute to those who have and do serve with these cookies! yum! Source and tutorial
