The Fourth of July is less than a week away and if you’re planning an event around the patriotic theme, you’ll want to have the most star-spangled elements. Here are 4 simple ideas to make your Fourth of July event the patriotic flare it calls for.
- Red, White, Blue- Build your event theme around Old Glory! Red, white, and blue décor can be spread throughout your entire event venue. Use these colors for tables settings, balloons, and flower arrangements.
- Party Favors- Send your guests home with fun party favors. Party poppers, streamers, mini flags, and more can be given to guests as trinkets.
- Food– Make your desserts pop with the colors of the flag! Cater cheesecake squares with blueberries and strawberries or cupcakes with American flags for dessert.
- Uncle Sam- Incorporate Uncle Sam into your event! Use Uncle Sam hats as centerpieces for the tables. Punch a hole through the top of the hat and add streamers and flowers to the hats. His iconic image can also make for a fun step and repeat for your guests to pose with.
