Don't forget to print out a few printable patriotic games for your Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, and President's Day Celebration Parties. They are not very expensive so even if you don't end up using them this time, you will have unlimited printouts for 90 days which takes you way past Labor Day.
We love to have these games on hand just in case … just in case it rains, just in case the little kids (or the big kids) get antsy, just in case your party extends well into the evening after the sun goes down and the lawn games get put away. Printable games are also a perfect evening activity when camping since they are light weight and easy to transport. Consider printing on recycled paper. Additionally, if you are looking for classroom activities for a patriotic school party, these are both educational and fun.
All six of these printable patriotic games will keep your guests guessing and laughing plus you can personalize all of them.

Memorial Day is just around the corner but there is still plenty of time to order a few extras to add a festive touch to your party and you don't need to spend a fortune to do so. We love the little pin wheel and stars and stripes fans. M & M candies are fun, easy and inexpensive party favor. Good looking paper plates and napkins are always essential. Throw a few small vases filled with swirl pops around the room intermixed with this simple fresh flower arrangement (ok – we admit, no matter how great our decor, it never seems quite complete unless we have at least one vase of fresh flowers). And finally, American flags remind us of the meaning of Memorial Day. Continue Reading →
We fell in love with this great lobster party supply bundle that includes Oval Melamine Plates, (4) Butter Dipping Bowls and (1) Pack of 20 Napkins. Not surprisingly we now felt compelled to create an entire summer party around these festive products that could work perfectly for a Father's Day celebration, a 4th of July Party, or as an excuse to gather your friends and family together for no reason at all.
Since it is summer, do not, we repeat do not fire up your stove and slave for hours trying to create the perfect 3-4 course lobster fest. It is just too hot outside and truthfully, not worth your time and effort. Especially, since there is a terrific alternative that even if you slave for hours in the kitchen, will taste better than anything you can pull together yourself. Instead simplify your life by ordering the lobster and all the fixings from Lobster Anywhere. They will deliver everything from the lobsters and the lobster pot to the shell crackers, seafood forks, and lobster bibs. Now add some chowder and crab cakes or sea scallops wrapped in bacon for appetizers and finish off with yummy key lime pie for dessert. One stop shop with overnight delivery to ensure everything is as fresh as possible. Continue Reading →
Our close friends and occasional PIP contributors, Vicki and Paige, landed in Waco, Texas for a fun week in search of all things fabulous. It did not take them long to discover a set of wonderful burlap silverware holders. We hate to admit it but this was our first encounter with utensil holders and we are smitten. So of course, we felt compelled to spend a couple of of hours researching burlap utensil pockets and then decided to share a few of our favorites with you. We envision using cutlery pockets for weddings, bridal & baby showers, and birthday & dinner parties . We also think burlap cutlery holders could really add that sometime elusive but all so important little splash of wow to your Thanksgiving tables! Continue Reading →
Lots of folks host backyard Memorial Day & 4th of July parties. But today we are talking to those of you who are planning block parties, community parades, family reunions, and even patriotic theme wedding celebrations. Although you will find lots of creative ideas to plan your patriotic party from a host of our previous patriotic party posts, most of the products showcased are available in small quantities. Seldom does a backyard party call for a case of patriotic party supplies that includes 48 patriotic banners or 36 patriotic headband boppers or flip flops. But for bulk purchases, Dollar Tree has you covered! Continue Reading →

Did you know tomorrow, June 14th, is Flag Day? To get into the spirit we turned to our friends over at Julep. Sometimes we want to party pretty without looking like a walking American flag. So we dress in a solid, usually reds, whites or blues and then add some patriotic nail art to make a classic Americana look pop. We are loving Julep's fun patriotic nail art inspiration that is perfect for both Flag Day and the 4th of July and for that matter any other patriotic holiday!
Take a look at these pictures for ideas on how to pretty your nails for the upcoming holidays. What is even better is that Julep is offering a free Star Spangled 8-piece gift when you join Julep Beauty Box. This includes four patriotic polishes, a hot pink lip gloss, a peony pink blush stick, a bronze eyeliner, and white chevron nail decals. A $122 value FOR FREE!

Whenever we travel we always give ourselves 5 extra minutes at the airport to pick up a box or two or three of See's Candies to have on hand as little gifts of thanks as we visit friends and family. So we were particularly excited when we received word that See's is having a sale just in time for 4th of July celebrations.
Treat your friends, family and patriotic party guests to a star-spangled spread of summertime treats or try See's campfire favorite Marshmallow treats, a summertime sweet you don't want to miss!
