Patriotic Party Gear – Get Out the Red, White and Blue!

Summer will soon be here with TWO patriotic holidays that are some of our favorite days for backyard BBQ celebrations with our family and friends. Treat your party guests to some patriotic party gear so everyone can get their stars and stripes on even if they didn’t show up to the party already wearing red, white and blue. It will add to the festive mood and get everyone into the party spirit!


Patriotic Party Gear Ideas:


  • When your guests arrive to your event, have a table near the entrance stacked high with hats, jewelry and other patriotic party gear.
  • Set up a photo booth! Have a designated station for taking photos complete with a photo printer or instant camera so your guests can display their photos for everyone to see.
  • Have a contest! See how can come up with the best combination of party gear to let the red, white and blue shine. Have a fun prize for the winner!
