Independence Day Party Ideas – Some Quick Planning Tips

Clown Logo of Karnival Costumes your Halloween specialists for Fancy Dress and Costume Accessories
Independence Day or the 4th of July, is a fantastic excuse to throw a party and for those who lack their own ideas, the good news is that the colour theme has already been provided for you. Wherever you plan to hold your party or celebration, you need to integrate as much red, white and blue as you can.
 
Assuming that you are serving food, you should put out coloured plates, napkins and cups in red, white and blue or you can even find these in a Stars and Stripes design. A tablecloth that looks like the American Flag or has red and white stripes similar can be an instant party decoration. Streamers, curled ribbons or decorative strings using these colours can be hung from the ceiling. You may want to leave them long enough to hang down almost to the floor so guests can push the streamers aside to move. Make sure you don’t overdo this effect, but between doorways or behind the buffet table where they will be seen but not be too intrusive is perfect.
 
In the States, everyone will be using fireworks as part of their celebrations and this is the time of year when they have their most spectacular organised displays with thousands of people attending and joining in the highlight of the day. Although there are time limitation rules on the use of fireworks in the UK, it’s possible to set off your own as part of your celebration. As an alternative, you could use sparklers and fun-snaps these make s snapping noise when you throw them to the ground, for the guests to entertain themselves after dark. If you are planning to venture outside with your party, it might be worth investing in some red, white and blue lights which can be strung around your venue or use oil burners/torches to create a party atmosphere.
 
Turn your celebrations into a costume party by asking your guests to come dressed as their favourite American heroes and revolutionaries. There are lots of historical figures to choose from, Washington, Lincoln or you can dress up as Uncle Sam (or Aunt Samantha) or simply come as an iconic American figure. Karnival Costumes has an extensive collection of USA themed fancy dress as well as American style decorations and Stars and Stripes tableware, and here is just a few examples:
 
 
Ref:  AJ008916
 
This is a glitzy stars and stripes costume which comprises of a long sleeved blue tailcoat jacket which features a wide red and white striped lapel and collar line. The tailcoat has a square cut front which is decorated with a chevron of white decorative buttons. The jacket is worn over a white shirt which has an attached frilled jabot which is hung outside of the coat as pictured. Included is a pair of red and white striped trousers and these have an elasticated waistband for a comfortable fit. This classical Uncle Sam costume, it's completed with a tall top hat which features a band of stars around the hat band.
 
 
 
Aunt Samantha American Fancy Dress Costume by Rasta Imposta available from Karnival Costumes
Ref:  BA001944
 
This is a glitzy costume comprises of a blue sequined vest top which features a metallic silver lapel and collar line. The hemline at the front is shaped and the front is decorated with silver stars. Included is a red and white (silver) striped sequined skirt which has an elasticated waistband for a comfortable fit. The hemline of the dress is trimmed with a wide blue sequined band which matches the waistcoat which is decorated with silver stars and which is finished with a band of bright red net. This colourful Aunt Samantha Independence Day fancy dress is completed with a matching mini-top hat which is constructed from red, white (silver) and blue and sequined materials and which features a band of silver stars around the blue hat band. We can hear Sousa warming up the band in the background and I think we're nearly ready to march.
 
 
Statue of Liberty Fancy Dress Costume for American Parties from Karnival Costumes
Ref:  BN0AC389
 
Join the hullabaloo in this terrific Statue of Liberty outfit which comprises of a flowing dress which features a high rounded neckline and an off the shoulder swag across the body. In reality, the costume looks a lot more like aged copper and a lot less blue than shown in the picture. Completing our Statue of Liberty costume is an easy to wear latex headpiece which has the decorative band of windows beneath the crown of spikes. Please note; the torch is available separately.
