This summer, enjoy a patriotic themed party any day, any time. Decorations are simple. The menu is even simpler. Just focus on summer favorites and fresh food and you have a winning event every single time.
- Hot Dogs
- Potato Salad
- Cole Slaw
- Corn on the Cob
- Baked Beans
- Crudites with dressing
- Ice Cream
You can add and subtract dishes as needed depending on the size of the crowd at your event. The beauty of the menu is how easy it is to make more if late arrivals show up. Just keep the grill fired up and you can have fresh hot food ready in minutes.
Extra salads and desserts never go to waste. They make great leftovers following your event.
Decorations are even easier. A trip to The Dollar Tree offers you a variety of red, white & blue tableware & decorations. I found plates, napkins, tablecloths in all three colors. I also found the same items in solid colors. You can mix & match items to make things more interesting. I also found red, white & blue leis, beads, centerpieces, balloons and more. The hard part was stopping myself from buying more than I needed.
While at The Dollar Tree, I also found games that can be played during your event. These include things for the kids to play with during the party. They also had plenty of condiments and snacks that can be used during your event.
Need lots of products for your event? Buy in bulk at the Dollar Tree website.
