Ahhh time for one of my favorite parties of the year…our annual ‘Murica Trash Bash!! This is our 2nd year doing this particular theme and it’s just as funny as last year. There are so many funny stereotypes about Americans so it’s fun to utilize some of them! The hardest part of doing a trash bash is restraint! You want it to look slightly tacky but it’s gotta look believable too 😉 We always have it as a potluck because it’s one of the few times it totally doesn’t bother me having all different sizes and colors of tupperware bowls! Plus, people like to feel involved and this is an easy way to do that AND help me out! We provided hot dogs, buns, drinks and condiments. Everything was assigned. It.was.glorious! Know what else it? That this entire party, tables and chair set up included, takes about 30 minutes!!! God Bless America!
The pizza box/solo cups stands were my favorite part but maybe having to eat the pizzas that came in them had a hand in it 😉
I tried the layering drink and sadly it didn’t work very well BUT that’s the beauty of a trash bash. Things that don’t pan out just add to it. Haha
I found all these hilarious American memes but this was my favorite. I made it in photoshop and had it printed at Staples on engineer paper. Remember to hang your things just slllliiiightly crooked and leave a corner untaped. Although, nearly every single guest tacked that down before they were told it was on purpose!
Centerpieces were goblets with tealights and a fetching solo cup shade, root beer bottles with RED WHITE and BLUE silk flowers from the Dollar Store, this hilarious eagle drink floatie, and since I couldn’t find whole peanuts I went with it’s less trashy cousin popcorn
We LOVE to dress up and so we have a lot of themed parties. We had everyone vote on the ONE person who they think had the best costume and we pick the top 3 highest voted. This year’s prizes
First, Second and Third place
Try as I might, I couldn’t make this cutie look trashy. I think she’s just too cute!
This is my gorgeous family
Haha, I just can’t
Your trashy host and hostess
Andy won first place by a landslide, second and third place only got one vote each! The rest were all for him and well deserved!
Love this patriotic group!
Disclaimer: this was all done totally tongue in cheek and not to hurt anyone’s feelings. We LOVE America and all the people in it!! In all truth, I’m SO thankful to have such incredible men and women who have and continue to sacrifice for our country! We’re blessed that we have the freedoms to do such a silly party and that I can post it online. Even though we may be struggling as a country I still love it so so much! Happy 4th of July everyone!!
