Add a little PIZZAZZ to a delicious apple pie with patriotic details. Head to your craft store for fun red, white, + blue ribbon and other fun crafts to place into pies and other sweet treats.
Kick boring red glasses up a notch with fun nautical and patriotic stickers! Easy to remove, they turn simple glasses into July 4th drinkware in a flash! Also, add a few nautical pillows and red + blue pillows to create a patriotic atmosphere in your backyard! We found ours at HomeGoods!
Visit your local fabric store for your tablecloth! We found a simple blue + white stripe that we will be able to use for lots of other parties too. A simple $1 patriotic bunting banner found at Target added the perfect table decoration!
Serving fresh fruit is a must for any summer party but kick it up a notch by placing raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries on wooden skewers along with a few sweet treats like these simple yogurt covered pretzels and mini golden cakes. All of these sweet items were found at our local grocery store and took only seconds to thread on the skewers. Almost instantly we had a sweet treat display for the party!
Slice red bell peppers and hollow out the seeds to make the perfect container for dips like guacamole or spinach artichoke spread. Serve along with fresh crackers and veggies for a delicious + savory treat!
Thousands of patriotic parties include grilled hot dogs + hamburgers so add a patriotic touch with fun craft supplies! We used simple fabric + paper to create sailboat shapes on wooden skewers. After adoring with patterned ribbon, they were placed in the hot dogs for a fun decoration!
A simple nautical decoration made the perfect holder for cupcakes, doughnuts, and berries! Cake stands aren’t the only holder for cupcakes so take a look around for fun themed props at your local stores or HomeGoods!
We hope you found LOTS of party inspiration! We found lots of these props + decorations at TJ Maxx + Homegoods. We want to give YOU a chance to shop for fun props so we’re giving away a $25 gift card to TJMaxx!
“Now that spring has sprung, it’s time to put away the fine china and get outdoors to entertain this spring and summer. However, being the hostess with the mostess can get pretty pricey. At T.J. Maxx and Marshalls, we get our current season inventory direct from designers and high-end retail stores. That means fabulous designer finds at a price you can’t refuse. We call it “The Thrill of the Find” — finding that coveted, “it” item of the season at a great, affordable price. While T.J.Maxx and Marshalls are typically thought of as fashion brands, they’ve built out their housewares department into a division called HomeGoods, changing the way people shop for their home décor and entertaining supplies. From cookware to gourmet foods to outdoor accessories, the ever-changing eclectic array of home fashions makes it more affordable to put on a killer party.”
