How to Throw a Perfect Presidents Day Party

Milena Kukurekovic

Get creative and celebrate Presidents Day, honoring the great leaders of our country! Show your American Pride - and Bring out the Red, White, and Blue! 

We had some fantastic leaders in the past, and Presidents Day is all about remembering those great men. Though it started out being a day that honored George Washington, then Abraham Lincoln, now we take the Day to keep them all. As a federal holiday, Presidents Day is an excellent opportunity to teach kids about our leaders and their good deeds and help infuse a sense of patriotism in them. And with the holiday always falling on a Monday that makes a three-day weekend, what better way to learn about the presidents and still have fun than to throw a Presidents Day Party?!

To impress your guests with more than just your fantastic cooking but with a spectacular party tablescape too, you should shop for our elegant Disposable Party Dinnerware SetsDisposable FlatwareElegant Plastic DrinkwareEcowareMiniware, and other beautiful partyware at a perfect wholesale price, and be sure that your Presidents Day Party will stand out in the memory of your guests for a long time. And one of the main advantages of using our gorgeous disposable plastic tableware, you will take all the stress out of organizing, managing, and after-party cleaning! That is right - no after-party cleanup! Use, enjoy, dispose of!

Smarty Had A Party has gathered some chic yet simple patriotic table decoration ideas that will provide you and your guests an exciting way to enjoy the holiday together in the most festive way! We were inspired to arrange a lovely Presidents Day Party that will be saluting in every way and help you bring history to life, highlighting the unique color palette of redwhite blue and honoring our forefathers on this special day. We lived up our magnificent, patriotic party tablescape with modern dinnerwaredrinkware, and flatware, using unique patterns and a twist on the traditional American feel!

Presidents Day Party Tablecloths

Whether you go with a traditional table for a sit-up occasion or set up a buffet station, never neglect tablecloths – they will not just protect your table but also help you achieve a harmonious look. Since we didn't have the national flag, we have dressed up the table with a blue tablecloth and paired it with a shiny white table runner, running down the middle to ingeniously blend in all three patriotic hues.

Presidents Day Party Centerpiece

This beautiful, affordable, festive, and vibrant centerpiece featuring patriotic colors is just what you need to elevate your Presidents Day decorations up a notch! Fill the clear carafes with red, clear, and blue acrylic crystals, creating a patriotic contrast of colors, and, of course, fill some with ice to serve as refreshing drinks.

Presidents Day Party Table Setting

Your party won't be complete without the dinnerware. Opt for our red dinner plates for your table settings and top them with our white appetizer/salad plates and blue cake plates for an enticing allure. Place white with red striped paper napkins between white salad plates and blue cake plates, alternating the three colors, imparting a charming flair. Give a perfect finishing touch to your patriotic table settings by placing crystal clear disposable tumblers and a shiny metallic plastic cutlery set.

Additional Decorations

Since there is nothing more elegant than a striking flower arrangement gracing the table, we decided to enhance our carafe centerpieces, white chairs, and place settings with a luscious bunch of red, white, and blue artificial blooms to highlight our tablescape decorations.

Outdoor Presidents Day Party

This is a perfect day for spending time with your family in nature and reminding them of historical facts that do not have to be dry but can turn into a lovely party! The sun shines through dinner time, and tiny shoots from plants and trees make their way through the ground. So get out and use your beautiful backyard that was neglected all winter! Create some Presidents Day-themed activities for your family to enjoy together.

Pin the head on Mount Rushmore game. First, cut out Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt images. Then, blindfold one family member at a time and see if they can correctly place the president's head on a more giant cutout of Mt. Rushmore.

Try making your own presidential bean bag corn hole. Print or draw and cut out large images of the president's heads and place them on the boards so the hole lines up with their mouth. Talk about the republican and democratic parties as you throw red and blue bean bags to score points by landing on the wooden platform or in the president's mouth. If they score, double their points for impressive aim and historical knowledge!

Give your kids some fun and help yourself at the same time. They can create pennant garlands emanating a unique patriotic vibe and chose triangle burlap pennant flags to craft exclusive Presidents Day garlands. Highlight the American flag colors and design and paint some of the pennant flags navy blue and stick silver stars on them.

This Day of the year gathers the family in one place and brings us closer to history and tradition. After the beautiful decorations, lots of games, and delicious meals, as a beautiful end is the fireworks that are an unavoidable part of this holiday!
