This three-day weekend means paying tribute to our fallen military men and women. In the past it included parades or outdoor festivals, however, many of us will still be in quarantine. But what if you could bring all that excitement into your own home? Texas Today reached out to some North Texas businesses that can help you plan the perfect Memorial Day bash and get you ready for summer.
DECOR: Find out which party supply store or yard greeting business is open in your area, and you can choose to have them deliver or do curbside pickup. In this case we chose RED, WHITE, and BLUE decor.
