Party in the USA: Americana Theme Party

Wanna throw like, the BEST party ever and honor the way you spend your money? Then an Americana-themed party is the way to go! It’s bound to be a d*mn good time, and it’s the perfect way to celebrate how great this country really is! Let’s live it up courtesy of the red, white, and blue.

If you’re going to party in the USA, you’ve got to do it right. Because no one throws a party like we do here in America! Plus, theme parties are so fun, so you want to make sure you’ve got everything covered to make it the best time possible.

For us here at Miss American Made, we LOVE an Americana-themed party. It’s such a vibe, not only on the 4th of July, but any time of the year! It’s a great way to celebrate your nationality, showcase your patriotism, or simply appreciate being an American. (Also, leaning into all the stereotypes is pretty fun.) 

That’s why today, we’re sharing a guide on how to throw a fun and memorable Americana-themed party using ONLY American-made products. (Like, DUH!!)

How To Throw Americana Theme Party

American-Made Decorations

Grab some red, white, and blue decorations that are made in America!

While American-made decorations can be hard to find (especially ones with a theme), we’ve compiled a list of some of the best American-made retailers of party decorations for you to choose from:

The good thing about decorations is that a little goes a long way. When you’re theming every element of the party, you don’t need to overdo it with the streamers and balloons. Grab a few things, make sure you’re waving that American flag, and set the patriotic vibe with all elements of the party!

America-Themed Food

You’ll want every aspect of your party to fit in with the theme, so American-made food is a MUST. Hot dogs, hamburgers, buffalo wings, chocolate chip cookies, popcorn, brownies, etc.—you’ll want to have plenty of food for your guests to enjoy!

Beyond food itself originating in the USA, you can totally make your food table America-themed by presenting lots of red, white, and blue options. Make a patriotic fruit tray, charcuterie board, or dessert platter. There are seriously SO many possibilities. 

Red Solo Cups

If you’ve ever been to, like, any party in America, (or seen one in a movie) you know red Solo cups are essential. These cups are such iconic party staples there’s even a song about them (rest in peace, Toby!)  

But, we bet they’re even more American than you thought—did you know red Solo cups are made in the USA?! That’s right, the classic red Solo cup is an American-made product, along with most of the company’s other products!

So, if you want your dinnerware to echo your party’s made in the USA values, definitely turn to Solo! (Note: the refill cups and the hot drink cups are not made in the USA).

An American Playlist

Of course, you’ve got to have music from American artists playing at your Americana-themed party! It wouldn’t be a party without dope, patriotic music. And lucky for us, there’s so much to choose from. You can go in heavily on the Americana theme by using a playlist of songs about America, or you can put together a playlist of your favorite songs by American artists. Either way, it’s sure to be a hit! 

All-American Games

A few organized activities at a big party are always welcome. They provide a ton of opportunity for people to meet, connect, and have a fricken blast. If the party is outdoors, you can’t go wrong with some tailgating-style yard games like corn hole, horseshoes, ladder ball, pickleball, volleyball, or even some flag football! Inside, you could play beer pong, flip cup, or pretty much any classic card game. 

A Signature Cocktail or Mocktail

It’s no secret that drinking is a big part of cliche American culture. If your social group enjoys a few drinks (or a lot of drinks) they’re definitely going to expect a good selection of alcohol. To really elevate your party, come up with an American-themed signature cocktail (or mocktail) to serve alongside the rest of your beverage selection. Here are some USA-inspired cocktails and mocktails, and don’t forget to support made in the USA businesses with your choice of liquor!

A Photo Moment

Themed parties are super Instagrammable!!! But, you need the perfect place to snap a photo. So, set up a photo area with some American-themed props and have your phones ready! You could go All-American with your backdrop and accessories or keep it simple with a white sheet with some fairy lights. Your guests will LOVE being able to remember the party with some aesthetic pictures! 

Fireworks

There are few things more American than a fireworks display—even if it’s not Independence Day! However, make sure it’s legal in your area and made in America! Many fireworks are made overseas and are actually super dangerous, so seek out those USA-made fireworks!

A Dress Code

Now, this one’s not NECESSARY, per say. But it does totally add to the vibe! If you’re throwing what’s sure to be a killer Americana party, you’ll probably want everyone to look the part in American-themed clothing! This will make any pictures you get EVEN BETTER as everyone will match the theme. 

Freaking out about what to wear yourself? Don’t worry! We’ve got some Americana-themed party outfits down below.

7 Americana-Themed Party Outfits

Jumpsuit

This is a good outfit if you’re trying to follow the Americana-theme loosely with your dress code. Red, white, and blue are our inspo here—try this killer white jumpsuit with red, white, and blue accessories like these American flag earrings, a red belt, and white flats with red bows. Then, grab a blue denim jacket to wear over the jumpsuit. BOOM!

This outfit is simple yet edgy and totally American. Take a graphic tee (we like this #AmericanMade tee), pair it with some jean shorts, and then throw on a shacket over the top. Then, we love these American-flag-inspired earrings to add a little pizzazz. Lace up your boots, and you’re ready to party!

These can be hard to find, but don’t worry, one of our favorite American-made brands, Aviator Nation, has the LEWK for you! Just wear the matching sweatshirt and sweatpants, and pull on a pair of American-made sneakers to complete the look! To keep the vibe going, you could also throw on a pair of American-made sunnies
