North America's largest party retailer, Party City, helps consumers plan patriotic parties with plenty of American flair. The experts created simple Fourth of July party ideas to liven up any patriotic gathering.
Star Spangled Snapshots: Give guests an opportunity to show off their American pride with a photo booth. Simply hang an American flag for an easy, yet eye-catching background and get creative with patriotic props -- provide everything from Uncle Sam hats and pinwheels to electric guitar sunglasses and red, white and blue boas. To give photos a vintage American look, apply filters using popular photography apps, such as Instagram.
Fireworks and Freedom: Bring the magic of Fourth of July inside by creating a fireworks ceiling display that will have party guests floored. Hang patriotic paper fans, banners and garland from the entire ceiling. This look not only sets the scene for the party, but also helps define the entertaining space by containing guests to the decorated area. To add dimension and drama to any tablescape, layer red, white and blue garland across the backdrop the buffet table or even as table skirts for dining tables.
Pinwheels, Patriots and Party Favors: Give guests some trendy takeaways by filling a red popcorn box with fun favors like mini-American flags, beads, noisemakers, sparklers and other patriotic goodies. Adding party favors to the table display allows guests easy access to fun Americana flair throughout the party.
Patriotic Provisions: Enjoy the company of friends and festive decor, while indulging in great food. For a fun twist on presentation, serve classic American favorites stacked by layering ingredients in small tumblers. Set up a s'mores station or a hot dog bar for other classic American hand-held options. Party guests can grab and go with minimal mess for the host to clean up. Flag umbrellas and red and blue pinwheel toothpicks add flair to the delicious fare.
Stars, Stripes and Spirits: Serve refreshments that would make even America's forefathers proud this Independence Day. Layered red, white and blue cocktails get the party started on a fabulously festive note. Create an unexpected detail by dressing up old-fashioned beverages in bandanas or patriotic crazy straws. For easy serving, red, white and blue ice tins are perfect for keeping drinks cool and adding color to the display.
