The second big red, white and blue summer holiday is coming up next week. When I was younger my family would always throw a huge Fourth of July party at our house inviting what seemed like the whole neighborhood. We had holiday decoration contests for the kids, backyard games, tons of food and per tradition end the night with my dad putting on a fireworks show. We don't host a party like that anymore at our house, but those celebrations were some of my favorites growing up. 

This week I found some great red, white and blue flag themed ideas that you can use for your own Fourth of July party. 
This bike decoration remind me of the decoration contests we would have at our Fourth of July parties when I was younger. Using simple decorations like streamers, flags and poms you can decorate a wagon, bike or scooter for a festive Fourth of July Parade. You can get great clip-art ideas like this from Sheek Shindigs.
This was one of my favorite flag themed decorations I found. This flag wreath is an easy DIY craft that you can put together and bring out for all your red, white and blue themed holiday parties. To make this all you need is a styrofoam wreath and the mini flag toothpicks. I found this craft on Oodlekadoodle Primitives
You can't have a Fourth of July party without some festive themed food. Here is a flag themed cake and a fruit cutout watermelon bowl that can add some patriotic flare to your party. I found the flag cake on The Secret Life of a Chef's Wife. For step-by-step instructions on how to make the watermelon bowl click here. I think if you had either of these at your Fourth of July party you can't go wrong.

I think I am going to try my hand at making that flag wreath to display on the front door this year. Are you doing anything for Fourth of July this year? Don't forget you can follow me on Twitter @PreppyPlanner and get some extra party planning planning ideas!
