Last Minute Red, White & Blue Party Inspiration
* Party Printables are quick to use, inexpensive and can be used to decorate just about anything! And our red, white and blue printable kit includes printable snack boxes, USA flags, round tags and loads more to make decorating your tables, party scene a breeze!
* No memorial day celebration should be without paper pompoms or paper rosettes in my book. They are inexpensive, easy to use and look super fun. Basically, they pack a lot of "wow" for your buck! ;)
* Paper goodies bags are so versatile to serve snacks or for party favors at the end of the party. Think popcorn, nuts, cookies, candy or even gift cards!
* Ready to use cupcake wrappers are one of my go-to party supplies. They dress up home baked or store-bought cupcakes to suit any table, celebration or color scheme. Great for packaging sweet treats.
* These super cute mini gumball machines also double duty as place-holder cards!! How fun would it be to find one of those in your place setting?!! :)
* Striped paper straws are essential in any party. Trust me, they are a staple for beverages (in cute mason jars?) but also great as cake pop or marshmallow sticks, cupcake or cake topper accessories and even used to make a decorative party wreath!
