Here are some fun patriotic party ideas, including decorations, menu planning, and activities to help you to plan the ultimate patriotic party. After this article, you will have some great ideas to create a unique party for your fourth of July, memorial day, or election night party. You’re sure to wow your guests.
Let’s start with some fun decor and a few DIYs for your party. With these, your party will be one that everyone will remember.
One of my favorite ideas for party decor is a patriotic-themed photo shoot. This could be the start of a fun family tradition. You can even get photos from other family members doing the same to decorate your house or exchange photos with friends and neighbors. There are many services to print photos online or in person. Just print them out and pop them in a dollar store frame. You’ll be amazed at how wonderful they’ll look. Having fun memories to look back on while also having great seasonal decor for your party.
There are lots of party bundles out there that make decorating your whole home easy and affordable. Red White Blue Party Decoration Assortment has a fun vintage feel and comes with almost everything you need for a patriotic party.
If you want to go a step further and decorate the front of your house or doorway, the front of the house Banner Design is a great option. It has the added bonus of making it easier for your guests to find your party. You can layer a banner like Patios Front Porch and Inside Decor to personalize it.
If you plan on setting up tables for food or deserts, American Flag Plastic Table Covers will help protect your table while adding to the decor. The two-pack is a great value. If you have more tables to decorate, you can order an additional pack or alternate with a solid color.
Fringe Curtains can be used as a photo backdrop or hung in an entryway. They’re shiny and fun, great for adding some glitz to your decor. The peel and stick application makes putting them up a quick affair.
If you’re decorating a smaller area, then the Patriotic Party Decorations would be perfect for you. They also are great when added to a balloon arch-like Navy Blue Red White Balloon Garland. A balloon arch is one of those decorations that are incredibly memorable and will take your party to the next level.
You can also add July Party Decorations Set Party to fill in any decoration needs. Adding smaller sets to the balloon arch or any of the other sets will bring the decor throughout your house.
For a more handmade touch, you can add Fourth of July Mason Jar Silverware Holders. They make great centerpieces or a fun decoration for your mantle. You can use mason jars you have on hand or buy from a second-hand store if you want a more green or affordable option. They also make a great activity you can finish with kids to involve them with the decorating.
Another fun DIY is Painted Lawn Stars. These can turn any patch of grass into a patriotic celebration. They can be used to mark a picnic location. You can also use them to show what grass areas are for the party and which ones are not if you have an open backyard.
Of course, just as important as the decor itself is the food. Any party can be taken to the next level if the food and drinks match the theme. Here are some fun examples that can really wow your guests.
For a yummy-themed main, there are Patriotic Pizzas; these yummy snacks are the perfect finger foods for a party because who doesn’t like pizza? They are also easy to customize if any of your guests have dietary restrictions. Having a themed savory option can also bring a festive patriotic feeling to any other snacks on the table.
For a fun and easy dessert, try American Flag Marshmallow Pops. They are simple and affordable to make but leave a bold impact. You can keep to the flag theme or have some fun with your decoration if you have more time. They are a great addition to a candy or snack bar.
Another option for a dip-desert is Fourth of July Dipped Oreo Flags. Just melt and dip. If you make both these and the marshmallow pops at the same time, you can save on time and materials. They are also a delicious option that is sure to please your guests. Don’t you love an easy recipe that allows you to say, “I made that myself.”
If you’re short on time (or a little intimidated by the idea of making every snack yourself), you can get a significant impact with a Patriotic Lolipop Centerpiece. You can use it to fill out a dessert table or as decor anywhere you have laid the food out. It’s a fun, simple bit of edible decor.
For a bright and eye-catching treat, try whipping up Stars and Stripes Sugar Cookie Bars. They’re sure to stand out on your table of goodies.
An excellent idea for your party or so your guests can take continue the fun at home – S’mores Favors. These jars can be filled with the classic S’mores ingredients or customized with flavored chocolate or different cookies. Decorating the labels on the jars will give them that extra touch.
If you want to try for something seasonal and take advantage of the abundance of berries in the summer, Mini Stars Berry Pies will make for a yummy patriotic treat.
Crispy Star Pops are a fun take on a childhood classic. They will surprise and delight both adults and children. You can get elaborate with the decoration of them, or keep it simple by decorating stars in solid red, white, and blue, or have your guests decorate them.
Of course, there is always the classic – All-American Pie. It can be served up in mini pies or in a cup to make it easier for your guests to eat as they walk around. This also makes it easier to serve a-la-mode. If you’d prefer to leave it in the pan, then you can still make it fun by using star-shaped cookie cutters to make the crust decorative.
All these beautiful foods would be perfectly complemented by a chilled soda and colorful drinks bar. Having glass bottles of soda give a fun vintage vibe and offer your guests a taste of nostalgia. You can pair them with pitchers of bright, colorful drinks for any guest that doesn’t drink soda. Dropping fresh fruit into the pitchers can make them look more lux and tasty.
By mixing and matching any of these fun ideas, you can put together a fantastic bash this the fourth of July. You can go all out with them or just do the few you have time for. By picking the ones you like best, you can create a party unique to you. Your effort will shine, giving your guests unforgettable memories and honoring the holiday. The most important thing is that you have fun.
