Patriotic Polka Dot Party

There are so many great ways to celebrate America, summer and the good 'ole Red, White and Blue.  We like to mix a few polka dot touches into ALL of our parties, especially for holidays like the 4th of July and Memorial Day.  Follow our Pinterest board for even more great ways to bring patriotic polka dots into your summer party decor.
We'll see you there!


One of our very favorite ways to bring polka dots into our party decor is with a handmade polka dot banner.  This can be made with paper or fabric, or painted burlap!  Did you know there are large rolls of burlap for CHEAP in the garden section at Lowe's ($10 for 8 yards)?  This has been a party lifesaver for me many times!  We love how the super-talented girls at Eighteen 25 curated this Patriotic Popcorn Bar with Polka Dot Banner for summer parties.
It is perfection to look at - your guests will love this! 


Here is our favorite patriotic entry - learn how to create an inviting Front Porch with Polka Dot Pillows with Midwest Living and your neighbors will feel so welcomed!

There are even MORE ideas on our Patriotic Polka Dots Pinterest board dedicated to your red-white-and-blue polka dot parties for Memorial Day and July 4th.

If you like to "shop the house" like me, walk into each room and open those closets full of old blankets, pillows, fabrics and candles.  Grab anything red, white or blue and pile it all on the dining room table.  I bet you can create something wonderful for your own polka-dot-themed patriotic party or vignette on a porch or table too!

Polka Dot Favor Bags with Avery Labels


Look what we found for you!  Studio DIY has come up with an easy way for you to create polka dot paper treat sacks in ANY COLOR to match your party theme!

You'll never guess how simple it is to COLOR your way to a unique favor bag in your custom colors.

Here are your supplies:

#1 - Paper Bags (any size, color or style)

#2 - Avery brand Multi-Use Round Circle Label Stickers

#3 - Markers in your party theme colors

That's it!


You will be coloring your label sheets.  You can have the kids help you with this too!

Begin by removing one sheet of labels from the package.  Place a ruler under one row of circle stickers and color all the circles with your first marker.  Then slide your ruler down a row and color the next row of circle stickers with your second marker.  Continue coloring your stickers with a ruler as your guide until the whole label sheet is colored.

Once dry, remove each circle sticker from the label sheet and place on your paper sack.  Use your ruler again to line up your dots, or place stickers randomly for a more playful look.

Try this idea with two colors, like school colors, for classroom treats too.  Or try orange and black markers for DIY Halloween favor sacks too.  You always pick the cutest colors, so this party favor DIY idea is only limited by your markers!

Thank you for this fabulous party craft, Studio DIY!
