Fourth of July is around the corner and it’s not too late to get your hands on the cutest decor from Target. Every item I purchased for my party was under $5, so making your BBQ festive won’t break the bank. With Target being so easily accessible, you can still get some of these items for your Fourth of July celebration. I highly recommend checking the availability of each piece online before going to the store to make sure you visit the Target with the most items in stock. If you’re in a rush, order pick is always a favorite option of mine and makes shopping a breeze.
My inspiration for this event was to focus on stars and simple patterns. I’ve been obsessed with the current star trend so why not incorporate it. I purchased these metallic blue star plates and the food trays for $3 each. The coasters were only $1 for a package of 6. Whenever I’m creating my table setting, I typically always love the layered look because it can look so put together and professional. Even when using paper plates and cheaper decor, with a proper setup, it can look way more expensive then what you paid for.
Since I love hosting parties, I always reuse items and save what I can for future events. Investing in a few things like a fabric tablecloth, a glass vase and table runner make purchasing items for every occasion a lot easier since you already have basics to work with. You can buy an excellent polyester fabric tablecloth on Amazon for less than $15. It just depends on the size you’re looking for. Before, I used to purchase plastic table clothes for around $3 each but then realized that they didn’t look as beautiful and were not reusable, so why not invest.
Having fresh flowers is the easiest way to make any party look “fancier.” I wanted to do red, white, and blue flowers but realized that wouldn’t be possible because I left flower shopping for an hour before the event. If you’re looking something in specific, always call the place before to make sure it’s even possible.
One of my favorite target discoveries is their incredibly affordable balloons. I purchased this love balloon for $5. They aren’t for helium, so they come with a straw and string to use them as a banner. I wasn’t into the banner look, so I merely used some painters tape to attach the balloons to my window, and they stayed up the entire evening. Besides Fourth of July themed balloons, I’ve seen a ton of cute options, like “cheers” and “party” all for $5. Going to a balloon shop and having them blow them up for you will cost more than double the price of Target’s.
No matter what event you’re planning, planning is vital to hosting a smooth and stress-free event. Not being aware of what you already own and need, may lead to overspending or purchasing items that aren’t necessary.
To host a fun event, you don’t need to spend a ton of money. Almost everything gets thrown away anyways. Even if your budget is small, it’s important to stick to it. When in doubt on what to spend your money, I always recommend that your food should be the priority.
Shopping at Target for my decor made my life so easy since you can fulfill all your party needs at one place. I found that all the Fourth of July themed decorations at Target were so stylish and “trendy” so picking everything out was simple. Plus, I spent so little on such cute items.
I hope my party inspires your upcoming BBQ!
Wishing everyone a fun and safe Fourth of July!
