Patriotic Food and Drink Ideas for an All-American Party


One of the most unique and fun aspects of holiday food is the seasonal color palette we use when making our festive spreads – St. Patrick’s Day has us eating and drinking green, Halloween calls for black and orange, and of course, for the 4th of July, we bring out the red, white, and blue.

So how can you incorporate these patriotic colors into your 4th of July party feast? With a little bit of creativity, it’s easy to wow your guests with tasty treats that show off your holiday spirit.

Camping at Home

Next month is the celebration of our country’s independence again. I can already hear the sound of Disneyland’s spectacular fireworks show for the grand occasion.

While many are typically accustomed to going out of town for the weekend, these days many are more inclined to celebrate at home in the backyard. It’s more relaxing and economical to invite a few friends over for some afternoon gossip and barbecue. Set up some tables with disposable plastic table covers so the kids have a chance to unleash their creative side with some fun patriotic projects. I can guarantee some pretty snazzy flags by the end of the day.

Use 4th of July themed plates and napkins to add color and a festive touch to almost any outdoor event. If you and yours can’t go for that annual camping trip this year, let camping come to you. Pitch the tent and have an outdoor slumber party in the backyard. The kids will love it. :-)

Presidents Day, Patriotic Tributes

I remember loving the month of February in elementary school (through high school) because we had quite a few days off. Presidents Day was awesome! I also remember the school programs the teacher would put together. A few people would be selected to play the parts  of various U.S. presidents like George Washington and Abraham Lincoln and they would recite famous speeches as the rest of the class sang various patriotic songs.

We have just introduced a couple new Patriotic themed party designs that would coordinate perfectly with any Presidents Day celebration. Don’t hesitate to add color and memories to your child or student’s school celebrations this year. :-D

Besides, you can recycle the leftovers for 4th of July!

Mexican Independence

September 16 marks the day Mexico gained independence from Spain in 1810. Every year on the eve of Independence Day, the Mexican president recreates the events of the fateful night by ringing the bells of the National Palace in Mexico City. At dawn the following day the national military parades and ends on Mexico City’s main boulevard.

Today, similar celebrations take place on a smaller scale at churches, parks and/or people’s homes. Most celebrations consist of traditional Mexican meals with drinks and a reference to Hidalgo’s famous independence speech.

If it applies, gather your closest family members and plan a potluck fiesta. Not only does a get together allow bonding times, but it celebrates your heritage. It’s a great time for grandparents to share stories about the past to the grandchildren. Culture is something that can slip through our fingers in one generation and it’s a shame when some cannot point to their homeland on a world globe.

Dress up the house with Fiesta Fun Party Supplies, bring out the maracas and let the shots begin!

Fourth Of July Fun

Before you know it, hot dogs will be grilling, fireworks will be exploding, and the US will celebrate another birthday.  Independence Day is a celebration of freedom, of forward thinking, and of home.

Independence Day is celebrated in a variety of ways.  Taking advantage of some time off from work to do fun activities with a group is usually the goal most people have in mind. Planning ahead can make the day more relaxing and more organized for everyone!
