Red, White & Blue All Over: Patriotic Party Essentials

It is your duty as an American human to show some patriotic pride this Fourth of July. Hang up your flag, get out your checkered tablecloth and take a look at some of our favorite ways to add the iconic American colors to your 4th of July celebration!

Along with your American flag, you can add some fun red, white and blue decor to your party spread  with some creative ideas. We love this Patriotic Wall Decor, made from striped wrapping paper. Inexpensive to make, but makes an adorable impression. Add some American pride to floral arrangements with some card stock wrapped around glass jars or vases, as featured in this Patriotic Floral Centerpiece. Serve up your dry snacks in these Patriotic Painted Paper Tableware pieces -- and you'll never guess what they are made out of !

When it comes to snacks, your kids will have just as much fun making the treats as you will. These Rice Krispie Treats Star Pops are easy for the kiddos to cut out and decorate. And adding some colorful sprinkles to their favorite ice cream sandwiches to create Red, White & Blue Ice Cream Sandwich Pops will be a blast, too! 

And you can't forget about the most fun part of the party -- the cocktails! This Red, White & Blue Sangria is tasty, and would look lovely displayed in a glass serving cooler. Although these Patriotic Polka Dot Milkshakes are great for dessert, you can add in your favorite vodka or rum for a tasty dessert cocktail!
