Lots of folks host backyard Memorial Day & 4th of July parties. But today we are talking to those of you who are planning block parties, community parades, family reunions, and even patriotic theme wedding celebrations. Although you will find lots of creative ideas to plan your patriotic party from a host of our previous patriotic party posts, most of the products showcased are available in small quantities. Seldom does a backyard party call for a case of patriotic party supplies that includes 48 patriotic banners or 36 patriotic headband boppers or flip flops. But for bulk purchases, Dollar Tree has you covered! Continue Reading →
Don't forget to print out a few printable patriotic games for your Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day Celebration Parties. They are not very expensive so even if you don't end up using them this time, you will have unlimited printouts for 90 days which takes you way past Labor Day.
We love to have these games on hand just in case … just in case it rains, just in case the little kids (or the big kids) get antsy, just in case your party extends well into the evening after the sun goes down and the lawn games get put away. Printable games are also a perfect evening activity when camping since they are light weight and easy to transport. Consider printing on recycled paper. Additionally, if you are looking for classroom activities for a patriotic school party, these are both educational and fun.
All six of these printable patriotic games will keep your guests guessing and laughing plus you can personalize all of them.
Tiny Prints 25% Off Memorial Weekend Sale!
One of our very favorite stationery companies, Tiny Prints, is having a great 25% sitewide sale this week through May 27, 2014. Use Code MEM14 . Take advantage of this fabulous sale to stock up on invitations and stationery for all your summer entertaining. Think beyond Memorial Day to the Queen's Diamond Jubilee Celebration, graduation parties, Father's Day, 4th of July barbecues, backyard movie nights, summer birthday parties, baby showers, and midnight sun parties. Consider using this summer to reconnect with friends and family by hosting weekly Sunday barbeques.
Memorial Day is just around the corner but there is still plenty of time to order a few extras to add a festive touch to your party and you don't need to spend a fortune to do so. We love the little mason jar sippers with red and blue striped straws. Glass bowls filled with red, white and blue jelly belly and m & m candies are fun, easy and inexpensive. Good looking paper plates and napkins are always essential. Throw a few small vases filled with swirl pops and patriotic pretzels around the room intermixed with this simple fresh flower arrangement (ok – we admit, no matter how great our decor, it never seems quite complete unless we have at least one vase of fresh flowers). Patriotic cupcake kits make yummy cupcakes taste even better. How fun would it be to send your guests home with individual bottles of “Hot & Proud” hot sauce which also add a bit of sass to your table settings. And finally, red and blue ribbons remind us of the meaning of Memorial Day.
Although a bit too late to purchase for use at today's Memorial Day BBQ's, it is definitely not too early to start planning for your 4th of July entertaining needs! One Kings Lane is hosting a Red, White & BBQ Memorial Day Sale. Celebrate summer (and our forefathers) with this collection of patriotic party buckets, grilling accessories, plates, and more. By the time you're through, you're sure to feel like lighting a sparkler or two.
