While I love hosting parties, it can also be a lot of work. There is the planning, preparing your home, cooking the food, and then the decorating. So whenever I can, I keep it as simple as possible. And let’s face it, keeping the cost down is important too.

  • Plastic Table Covers – We used 1 each of red, white and blue to follow the Patriotic theme. You can easily change the colors to fit the holiday or your party theme
  • Cording or Twine – We used Paracord, found in the craft department at Walmart. It’s sturdy, comes in a lot of colors and is only $2.
  • Tools – scissors and ruler – or you can use a cutting mat and rotary cutter if you have one, we found the cutter to go a lot faster

To set the table, we used a Mainstays Fabric Tablecloth found in the housewares department at Walmart. The red and blue plastic plates are only $1 for a package of 4, and can be used over and over. We found the napkins by the Memorial Day display.

To hang the bunting, we used safety pins.

This festive decoration is also perfect on your porch (like Fun Home Things did) or fence. The plastic tablecloths make it durable for outdoors.
