10 Festive 4th of July Decorations for $10 or Less
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.
- 4th of July Dinner Plates, $2 for eight at Target: This combo of red, white, and blue stripes is more preppy than cheesy.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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?

- Striped Party Paper Straws, $5 for 100 at Just Artifacts: And these patriotic paper straws wouldn’t hurt either.
- 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.
- 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!
- 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.
- 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.
