Summer is already flying by, and soon we will be decorating our homes with red, white, and blue to celebrate the Fourth of July. We can’t wait to cook up our favorite recipes and whip up some of our favorite themed cocktails, and, of course, we’ll need all of the proper decor for serving our delicious creations. Thankfully Dollar Tree has our backs with a line of patriotic decor that is perfect for the occasion.

First, we’ll need good serving trays to serve those tasty side dishes like pasta salad and grilled corn, and Dollar Tree has just the thing we need: a red, white, and blue Popsicle-shaped tray. The tray is probably more accurately described as a shallow bowl, with edges that curve up that make it easy to hold lots of food. Chips to go with that guacamole? Fresh fruit salad? This serving tray will work for it all! You can snag a tray for just $1.25 each.

Dollar Tree also has individual star-shaped bowls and plates to match the theme. The star-shaped bowls come in a two-pack for $1.25. They are made of hard plastic and come in two colors: red and navy blue. These bowls are great for smaller snack items, like homemade Chex mix.

Might as well keep things on-theme and grab the rest of the fun Fourth of July decor items at Dollar Tree right now. You can snag an eight-count pack of paper plates that are also in the shape of stars, as well as themed kitchen towels, tablecloths, mini cups, balloons, and even flag-themed hot dog sleeves.

These items are not available online. So if you don’t live near a Dollar Tree, we recommend ordering similar items from Walmart’s website. The online retailer is selling a super-cute Popsicle serving tray and star-shaped bowls at a slightly higher price point than the items at Dollar Tree.

With these items, you’ll have no choice but to host the best Fourth of July barbecue. Happy grilling!
