4th of July Decorating Ideas


red white and blue

Ready Set . . . BOOM!

I know it is hard to believe that the July 4th holiday is almost here! I have been making so many red white and blue pinwheels and banners for my event planners already.  Whew! Thank goodness they know how to plan ahead!  If you are thinking of adding some red white and blue whirling fun PINWHEELS to your party from my pinwheel shop, PINWHEEL PRETTIES– keep in mind, TOMORROW (Tuesday, June 7th, 2016) is the deadline to order to receive custom made items from any of my Etsy shops in time! Yeppers! That’s how busy I am!

Although, I do also have a few sets of pinwheels ready to ship in my JULY 4TH section of my shop that can ship out as late as June 24th to add to your 4th of July event (be sure to read the full Item Details of each listing to confirm turnaround time and shipping) as my custom made to order items do have a longer production time.  I also offer many more red white and blue DECORATIONS in THE PARTY FETTI SHOP for the Fourth of July celebration that are ready to go too!

Don’t wait too long!  Visit any of my shops below to get ready for your patriotic celebration-






Thanks for stopping by the blog today.  Today’s blog update is just a reminder to help you get ready for the patriotic holiday and your celebration.  I’ll be posting some wonderful recipes soon perfect at a 4th of July barbecue and lots more ideas, inspiration and DIY crafts to help you get ready!

Memorial Day Celebration



Memorial Day weekend is coming. Many will be traveling, enjoying the beginning of summer, taking a mini vacation, and spending time with family over the holiday.  This is always a holiday for gathering together and enjoying our friends and family but let’s not forget why we celebrate this holiday.  Memorial Day honors men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971.

So be sure to remember our fallen soldiers over the coming weekend for their ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.

This weekend I will be honoring many Army soldiers at an event at Fort Riley but I am happy to announce that my husband will actually be returning home from his second and final active duty tour with the Army.  I will be spending a few days with him this week at Fort Riley where we will celebrate his 24 year service with the military and his retirement.  I will be so happy to have him home permanently.  It’s been a long five years without him, during his Army Jag training and then two tours almost back to back.  He has served his country dutifully and now he will return home safely.

Army Jag Ceremony

So because I will be spending time with my Army solider and taking a mini vacation of my own, I will have a week or so of no posts here on the blog. So I will leave you with some red, white and blue barbecue and Memorial Day decorating inspiration until I return.  These are all perfect set ups for the coming 4th of July holiday as well.

All my Etsy shops below are still open as well, but please note that I will not return or be shipping anything until Wednesday, June 1st, 2016.







I love this DIY American Flag made with red, white and blue crepe paper and some punched out white stars.  Super easy!


Great tablescape for a lakeside celebration.  Perfect for Memorial Day, 4th of July, or a nautical themed party or event.


Rustic is trending – add a BURLAP BANNER or any of our red white and blue banners. garlands or hanging fans to your patriotic decorations.

Thanks for stopping by Party Fetti today.  I hope you have a safe Memorial Day weekend and kick off the summer with great weather with your family & friends.

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!
