Are you planning a summer party? Fun, get togethers, red white and blue, all the awesome things! As you’re planning out summer parties, I have a great Patriotic Party Tablescape idea for you.
Go ahead and pin this idea for later. I really love how everything came together – so cute! You’ll have to let me know if you have a favorite part of the tablescape. This post may contain affiliate links.
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.
Here’s a more detailed glimpse at the table sides:
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.
I hope you’ve found love of great ideas to implement in all your Patriotic Parties this summer!
