Five 4th of July Dinner Party Decoration Ideas

1. Star-Spangled Independence Day Wreath

Let your guests know how festive your dinner party will be from the moment they arrive at your door. The Patriotic Wreath by That Cute Little Cake is star-studded. The paper stars are super easy to make. To create the wreath, you need red, white, and blue card stock, wire, scissors, ribbon, and a hot glue gun.

2. Patriotic Pinwheels

Surround your 4th of July dinner party guests with enormous pinwheels in red, white and blue colors or stars and stripes. Line them up on your front yard or along the path that leads to your door. And if you’re entertaining outdoors, they’ll look fun and whimsical on your patio. Here’s a tutorial on how to make giant pinwheels.

3. Red, White and Blue Balloons

4th of July Dinner Party Decoration Ideas - Red, White & Blue balloons

What’s more festive than a room full of balloons? You can create bundles of red, white, and blue balloons in corners of the living room or pin balloon bouquets to the walls. If your dinner party is outdoors, you can use miniature balloon bouquets in a vase as centerpieces or hang streamer/balloon combos.

Rather than stick to basic solid red, white and blue balloons, try to find balloons with various designs in those three colors. Match red and white striped balloons with blue balloons with white stars. Or match clear balloons filled with white stars with red and blue balloons. When it comes to balloons, the only limit is your imagination!

4. American Flag Luminaries

4th of July candle lights

We love this idea Festive Lights by Sweet Something Design. These easy-to-make candle jar holders can be used to light up a walkway or as a centerpiece. All you need are empty pickle jars or any other empty glass jars, mini flags, and tea light candles. Remove the jars’ labels and replace them with American flags. Alternatively, you can also use bigger jars, and instead of using tea light candles, you can fill the jars with battery-operated fairy lights.

5. Red, White, and Blue Bandana Tablecloth

There are many tablecloths for sale out there with American flag prints; however, the DIY approach is so much more meaningful, and your guests will love the effort you’ve put into making your 4th of July dinner party personalized and memorable.

To make a genuinely eye-catching tablecloth, all you need are bandanas in red, white, and blue. Bandanas are less than a dollar each so not only is this project fun and festive, but it’s cheap to make. Sew the bandanas together to create a rectangle depending on the dimensions of your table. Only have time to make one? Use your DIY red, white, and blue bandana tablecloth for the main buffet table. The result is a beautiful tablecloth that almost looks like a quilt and feels all-American.
