Picnic Party Ideas


Who doesn’t love red and white checkered gingham at any outdoor birthday party or at a 4th of July celebration? It’s easy enough to add a little blue into your Independence Day party or barbecue with a picnic theme too!  This theme is so versatile for any outdoor event.  Let’s get to some great picnic styled party tables –

This creative combination of polka dots and gingham at this Teddy Bears Picnic party is so on the spot! How easy is that to pull off too- they ran a few yards of cut red gingham fabric vertically over the white tablecloth for the food table.  The added height in the back is a great idea too.  Get all your gingham party decorations at The Party Fetti Shop!

This picnic party features fun coordinating pinwheels – perfect for outdoors in the sunshine!

That tissue tassel garland swaying in the breeze are perfect for an outdoor table backdrop.

This gazebo features red white and blue hanging fans and fans are always an easy way to decorate at any picnic party or 4th of July party.  They can be hung anywhere or layered on a wall behind a food table.

Snap, Crackle, Pop 4th of July

The 4th of July is right around the corner – are you ready?  The Party Fetti Shop has all your patriotic red white and blue decorations and tableware for your 4th of July BBQ or celebration party, but time is running out for on time delivery, so get your orders in now!

Or click on over to the PINWHEEL PRETTIES shop- we have plenty of pinwheels ready to ship that will make it to you in time for your 4th of July celebration or any party!

I’m just going to assume you have your supplies but now just need to know what to do with them and how to make your festivities an event to remember.  Let’s explore some options!


A Rosette Bouquet is a great centerpiece – get your rosettes at The Party Fetti Shop!  Throw some citronella in your Rice Mason Jar Luminary to help keep the bugs away.  Bandanas as napkins AND decorations, yes please!  Plus keep those kids busy making some Paper Ring Garland.


You can also decorate with food, looks yummy!

Drunken Melon

For the adults – the Drunken Melon.  I almost added this to my melon post, but thought I’d wait for a fun holiday, like the 4th.  Cut a hole, add a bottle of your favorite vodka, let it sit overnight and enjoy!  You can also use tequila and dip the slices in sea salt.

Ice Cubes

I like to make a special brew and freeze it for ice cubes.  You can steep herbs and fruit in hot water and freeze as well.  Adding food coloring is another great touch!


Another great summer adult only idea is Sangria.  I always have a batch in the fridge!


Need a way to keep the kids busy while you enjoy those great adult treats?  A bag toss using Frisbees adds an interesting twist.  A squirt gun game is good to have around for a lot of events.  Use sidewalk chalk to set up a fun course.  Lawn Twister will also be great for adults after the kids are done and the liquor kicks in!


A big part of the fun involved in the 4th of July is staying out after dark.  Make sure your decorations are versatile by using a glow stick.  This is also handy to help people walk along path ways, down stairs, avoid poles and your precious plants!  Hang them from trees, umbrellas or lay them on the ground and don’t use helium.

Don’t forget to get stocked up for your next event.  The Party Fetti Shop, Pinwheel Pretties, Once Upon a Home Designs, Ready Set Craft Kits and I DO Wedding & Bridal Designs have plenty to choose from!
