I think the element that I love the most are these fun individual servings of skittles, in little Skittles Shooters – aren’t they so fun??

Let’s dive right into the details of the Patriotic Party Tablescape!

First up, you’ll need lots of candy, I used Skittles.   The whole bag is filled with only red, white, and blue candies – party perfect 😉 You know that I do a Red White Blue Blog Series every summer, so you know that I am weak for a patriotic theme.

Another favorite is the design-a-plate activity – – like this:

There was a scoop to access candy Skittles:

And then Star cookie cutters to help design – simply fill place the cookie cutter on the plate, arrange Skittles as desired, then remove the cookie cutter.  My kids really loved this!

The key to a great tablescape is lots of levels of items and decor.  You’ll want to hang banners high behind your table and low on the front of the table. I had pom poms of various heights in jars filled with Skittles.  The cupcake stand was tiered and added great levels.

To balance the other side of the table, I set up the Skittles Shooters on a cake stand to bring some height.  To add color and facilitate scooping candies, I set the cake stand inside a flat galvanized bowl and filled that with candies – I really love how that part turned out.

I made the fun USA sign and you can find that tutorial on another post – it’s just some wood and paint and scrapbook paper, and it turned out really cute!

A great idea for any table centerpiece is the classic American flags.  Fill vases with candy and push the flags in, that’s all there is to it.
