The sun is shining, music fills the air, and food and drinks abound – what better way to ring in the summertime than with a Memorial Day bash?  Whether you are celebrating in La Jolla or the Vineyard, go ahead and entertain the troops with these Top Five orGLAMic Memorial Day Musts…and believe me these summertime staples will thrill you through Labor Day.


Serve guests your culinary concoctions on Bambu’s All Occasion Veneerware.  Offering a full range of trays, plates and utensils, these single-use items are perfect for pool parties, BBQs or trips on the boat.  Made out of 100-percent certified organic bamboo, these biodegradable items are completely compostable.

Fontaine Maury

Even the most discriminating eyes won’t fault you for going green when you whip out your own monogrammed aluminum water bottle.  Adding a chic, preppy aesthetic to eco-living, these reusable bottles are must-haves for fiestas, airplane jaunts, and even gym sessions with that private trainer you are trying to seduce.  Planning a party?  These make excellent party favors for all.


As the sun begins to set, keep bugs away the natural way with Terrapy’s Organic Bug Off Herbal Rub.   A delicate blend of citronella, eucalyptus, and virgin coconut oil drives away insects while keeping your skin moisturized and hydrated at the same time.  With this secret balm in your arsenal, the mosquitoes in Punta Cana don’t stand a chance!

New Belgium Brewing Company

A favorite among beer connoisseurs (eco-minded and otherwise) New Belgium Brewing Company is one of my favorite breweries in the US.  The company’s brewing process is green every step of the way (employees are gifted bikes to get them to work!) and they consistently churn out hits like Fat Tire, the organic Mothership Wit, and the seasonal Skinny Dip.  Believe me, an orGLAMic summertime fiesta is not complete without one of these in hand.


If cocktails are more your thing, step up the orGLAMic factor by serving drinks made with Modmix.  These orGLAMic mixes come in Citrus Margarita, French Martini, Lavender Lemon Drop, Mojito, Pomegranate Cosmopolitan, Wasabi Bloody Mary, and are made with 100% organic ingredients including raw, unrefined sugar, fruits and herbs.  Yum!  And Happy Memorial Day!
