Throw a May Party

May is a banner month for outdoor parties. May Day, The Kentucky Derby, the United Nations’ World Day for Cultural Diversity, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, Cinco de Mayo and Armed Forces Day all happen during this month. In other words, there’s an excuse to throw a party all month long. Here are some original party ideas for celebrating outdoors this month.


Make Mother’s Day a Party

Mom may be expecting breakfast in bed, but she might not anticipate a Mother’s Day party. Invite friends and relatives for a special brunch – and make sure everyone who is a mother is celebrated as a queen for the day. (If Mom does the cooking at your house, get it catered or buy prepared brunch food.) This is one day where the party planning and decorating is done by amateurs: Make a Mother’s Day cake and have the kids decorate it; plus have kids write special messages to moms.

Check the weather and make sure to have an indoor back up plan for allergy sufferers if you expect a high pollen count on the day of the party. Find out the pollen count with the ZYRTEC® ALLERGYCAST™ App (standard data rates may apply)
