It’s America’s birthday! And if anyone deserves a party full of festive decorations, it’s our country! (She has had quite a year.) Go all out this 4th of July with these patriotic decorations. They’re all $10, which means you can contribute to the economy without causing a financial crisis in your home.

  1. 4th of July Dinner Plates, $2 for eight at Target: This combo of red, white, and blue stripes is more preppy than cheesy.
  2. Inflatable Pool Party Drink Floats, $10 for three: Thanks to these mini rafts, you can still enjoy a drink while you take a dip in the pool — even if your pool doesn’t happen to have a swim-up bar.
  3. Paper Party Cones, $7 for 20 at Shop Sweet Lulu: Serve up popcorn, potato chips, pretzels, and more in these adorable paper cones. People can grab one on their way to a picnic blanket just before the fireworks start.
  4. Patriotic American Flag Pinwheel Picks, $1 for 20 at Party City: You’ve seen those party picks that look like the American flag, right? Well these take it a step further. How great would they look pushed into a bunch of cupcakes, little sandwiches, or cubes of cheese?
  5. Star Swizzle Sticks, $7.50 for 12 at Shindigz: These glittery gold and silver swizzle sticks are just what you need to complete any sort of sparkling cocktail.
  6. Striped Party Paper Straws, $5 for 100 at Just Artifacts: And these patriotic paper straws wouldn’t hurt either.
  7. Folding Hanging Paper Fans, $9 for six: Hang these paper fans from a patio umbrella or along the railing of a deck for an instant space transformation.
  8. Party Like It’s 1776 Beverage Napkins, $5 for 20 at World Market: Do what these napkins say and everyone will have a good time. Ben Franklin didn’t mess around!
  9. Stars and Stripes Banner, $9.50 at Pottery Barn: This eight-foot, glittery banner is nice and subtle if you’re looking for something a little more understated.
  10. Patriotic Utensil Holder, $10 at Oriental Trading: Get some forks, knives, and spoons in red, white, and blue and this galvanized metal caddy will be extra patriotic.
