We attended a family pool party and I was responsible for the plates, plastic ware and chips & salsa. I wanted to add some American flair to what I brought, so this is what I came up with.
Buy American flag print plates, red, white, blue bowls found in the dollar section at Target, Stars & Stripes buckets also found at Target's dollar section and red, white, blue plastic ware. Then I bought blue with white stars scrapbook paper and cut them into strips. Next, I found another sheet of scrapbook paper that had circles with the American flag inside in shapes of hearts, stars and the liberty bell. I cut them out using a 1 1/2 inch hole punch and attached them to the strip of paper using glue dots, which I then wrapped around each set of plastic ware/napkins and stuck them in the buckets. The tortilla chips were blue and yellow and of course the salsa was red!
