Easy Potluck Party Flag Decor

Centerpieces aren't limited to tall vases or elaborate DIY projects. With a few carefully coordinated small vases and a whole lot of fun inspiration, you can decorate your party table with festive flair that's easy and casual.

These potluck party flags move past the usual drink garnish and into seriously cute table decor with just a bit of color coordination.

  • decorative cards
  • wooden skewers
  • adhesive
  • 1/4 inch ribbon
  • scissors

Step 1: With the card folded in half, cut the desired size of your flag. Snip a triangle out at the end of the flag. 

Step 2: Open the card up and apply adhesive to the inside. 

Step 3: Lay the wooden skewer at the fold line and fold the card shut, pressing the card tightly together over the wooden skewer. 

Step 4: Tie a piece of ribbon at the top. 

Step 5: Add the flag to mini color-matching vases or to an arrangement of flowers.
