A red box fan and a blue extension cord make the top of my outdoor party guest list. Don’t try to be a hot and humid hero- plug in and cool off. I like to decorate with items already in my party decoration inventory, or at least with items I can reuse. The Martha Stewart Collection acrylic glasses from Macy’s are as fun as they are affordable, and the Crosley Griffith Metal Chair from Walmart is pure blast from the past style. Jute table linens from Pier 1 Imports give a classic and chic outdoor living look and will stand up for use at other entertaining events. Hot dog holders, Snoopy and Woodstock napkins, American flag themed coasters, serveware in patriotic colors and chic patterns, a baseball planter for all your centerpiece needs and these printable patriotic napkin rings from The Graphics Fairy round out the Fourth of July patriotic party supplies.
What’s a 4th of July celebration without a DIY project of the red, white, blue and Mason jar kind? Addicted to DIY gives the scoop on how to make these lovelies.

Fabrics in patriotic colors and an in the good old summertime theme are my party go-to solution for tablecloths, napkins, basket and serving dish liners.
Ready to go goodies keep with the summer chillin’ & grillin’ theme. The individual picnic baskets from Save on Crafts would make a great utensils holder. Line the baskets with red and blue bandannas, add utensils and a wet-nap. Remember when a meal from Kentucky Fried Chicken came with plastic utensils and a wet-nap? Smart thinking, Colonel! Citronella candles from Home Depot in holiday colors and designs will help to combat mosquitoes, the party guest pest of summer outdoor living times.
These are just a few ideas and deals I’ve spotted in my daily sourcing detail. The whole idea of a red, white and blue celebration is KISS- Keep It Summer Simple.
