A Red, White, and Blue Americana Dinner party, #WorldMarketSweeps

IMG_1220You all know how much I love setting up my gorgeous buffet, full of yummy foods and drinks. But I especially love setting up for a party when it’s as down home and fun as this one. This time I threw a Red, White, and Blue Americana dinner party. And this meant I got to go back to Cost Plus World Market to shop for some great Americana party supplies/décor.

Shopping at World Market is always fun for me, it’s one store I can go to and spend a couple of hours getting lost in all the amazing things they sell.  This time was no different.  I was able to find plenty of items to help me pull off an Americana inspired dinner party. From baskets and the liners, to the great wired stand and cupcake decorating kit, World Market had everything I could want help with my market Americana decor
When doing a themed party I usually plan out the food, drinks and the décor first, but this time I went shopping first and decided to let the ideas come to me. After seeing all of the cool vintage inspired Americana décor at World Market, I knew what I exactly what I wanted this party to be like.  The food, drinks, and décor were all inspired by wanting to recreate a summer BBQ, we just threw it indoors.

My awesome husband went all out to help me and made hot dog buns, and grilled bacon wrapped hotdogs. We also had BBQ baked beans, yummy cupcakes with vanilla buttercream frosting, and plenty of drinks…
The baskets and the liners came from World Market…
the cupcake stand, cupcake decorating kit, the cork coasters, and even the Fat Tire beers all came from World Market too. They have a pretty awesome food and drinks selection inside, and should definitely check it out.
You can easily throw your own Americana themed dinner party with some help from World Market. And there are plenty of reasons to be inspired by the Red, White, and Blue Americana inspired line they have. Not only is the Fourth of July coming up, but this year the World Games are being held in London and how awesome would it be to throw a party to celebrate the opening events. 

Cost Plus World Market is also holding a Red, White, and Blue in London Sweepstakes and the grand prize includes a trip for 2 to watch the Red, White & Blue compete in the London, tickets to the Opening Event and 3 sporting events, and a $1,000 World Market gift card.  Entering is easy, just head to the World Market Facebook page or the World Market Sweepstakes page for your chance to enter and win. 

You can also follow World Market on Twitter for more great ideas, and in store promotions.

This shop has been compensated by Cost Plus World Market. I created this dinner party because I was inspired by all the great items at World Market. All the opinions in this post are my own and honest.
