About this Site

If this is the first page you've landed on, let me give you a quick introduction. I'm Matt James, a professional party planner, and the purpose of this site is to show you the most creative way you can use regular, shop-bought party supplies that can be found in most stores. Not everyone has the craft skills of Martha Stewart or the time to spend several days with a glue gun making things from scratch. It's fine to use shop-bought decoration and supplies—as long as you choose them carefully and know the best way to put them all together. So I'll share a few simple tips and trade secrets that anyone can use to add some creative touches to your party—whatever your budget.

redneck party Invitations

Below are some suggestions for invitations to go with these redneck party ideas:

Matt's Tip

I think it’s important to create a big first impression, so I always try to incorporate some sort of object with the invitations—rather than just relying on a traditional printed card (see examples here). This is a little trick that’s often used by professional party planners to make invitations stand out. People just love to receive unusual invitations. It really captures their imagination and gets them excited about the party.

3d redneck Invitations

To create 3D invitations to compliment these redneck party ideas, pick up a pack of 'Billy Bob' redneck teeth. To use these as invitations for your trailer trash party just write or print all your redneck / hillbilly party details onto a small tag and tie this onto the teeth (see Using Tags on the Create Invitations page for examples). Buying the teeth in individual packs doesn't work out very cost effective, so pick up the economy packs of 12 for around $7 from supplier 6.

Redneck Invitation Wording

For the invitation wording, include plenty of redneck / hillbilly words and phrases into your redneck party ideas, ex:

  • Y'all
  • Ain't
  • C'mon over
  • Yer
  • Somebody dun bin.....

redneck Party Drinks

Here are some drinks suggestions to go with these redneck party ideas.

Matt's Tip

Always create a signature drink for your party—it’s one of the easiest things you can do to make your party unique. If your party has a theme, think about what flavors you can use in your signature drink that will convey it. Don’t forget about styling and presentation too. You could serve drinks in individual bottles or jars, add your own labels, use themed ice cubes, straws, drinks picks, or add a simple garnish. A sprig of berries or a single flower head on the rim of a glass can make a simple cocktail look really stylish.

Cheap Beer

No redneck / white trash party would be complete without cans of cheap beer. Pabst Blue Ribbon, Busch, and Bud Light are probably the most obvious redneck brands. Or go one step further and get a keg of beer for your trailer trash party.

pabst blue ribbon
bud light

Sweet Wine

Wine should be from a box, or serve fruit-flavored, screw top, sweet wine coolers such as Boones Farm. Serve them in these 'Redneck Stemware' styrofoam party cups.

redneck stemware styrofoam party cups

Redneck Cocktails

If you're a real fancy redneck and want to serve cocktails just mix Southern Comfort and Mountain Dew over ice. Serve in Mason jars for a real white trash party feel, which you can pick up cheaply here. Alternatively, you can get shot glass sized mason jars or personalized red Solo cups from supplier 4.

Patriotic Drinks

These red, white, and blue shooters, below left by Annie Marie Helmenstine on could be renamed 'Rebel Flag' shooters, as could this layered patriotic drink, below center by Kristyn at L'il Luna. Alternatively, make red, white, and blue Jell-o shots.

Beertini aka redneck martini

Alternatively, just stick with a classic Beertini aka Redneck Martini (below left, from Sofa King Drunk). Pour light beer in a cold Martini glass, throw in a couple of Martini olives and a little of the olive juice.

redneck party Food

Below are some food suggestions to go with my redneck party ideas. A lot of these white trash party foods are pretty disgusting junk foods and some of your guests may not actually want to eat them (think of them more as decorations that just happen to be edible!). So be sure to get the balance right between joke dishes and ones that people will actually eat.


As a professional party planner, I’m lucky enough to be able to collaborate with some amazing chefs to create menus for my events. As I’m no chef myself and cannot create dishesfrom scratch, I’ve searched the web for recipes that I think would work well for this party theme. All credit goes to the talented people that have created these recipes - so please click through to their site for full details, methods, and in some cases step-by-step tutorials.

Deep Fried Twinkies / Ding Dongs

Dessert Table Styling

Below are styling and decoration tips to create a themed buffet / dessert table to go with these redneck party ideas.

Matt's Tip

I always think it’s a good idea to concentrate the majority of your decoration around a buffet/dessert table. This will create a focal point in the room. decoration often have to compete with existing room decor so they can get a bit lost if spread too thinly. I think you’re far better off creating one really well themed feature wall that everyone’s eye will be drawn to. You can then use a few general decoration around the rest of the room to tie everything together.

Redneck Dessert / Buffet Table

To dress a buffet table like this one, follow the step by step instructions below.

Use this rustic barn wall scene setter to create a backdrop. It's 30ft long so you can probably cover several walls. It's a really cheap and easy way to transform your room. There's also an outhouse door add-on. Alternatively, you coud use these rolls of wood effect background paper. All available from supplier 2.

Buffet / Dessert Table

Make a buffet table for your white trash / redneck party by stacking up plastic milk crates and laying a sheet of plywood on top. Alternatively, cut a whole in the bottom of the milk crates, stack a few on top of each other, then slide the leg of your normal table through the hole so it looks like the table top is supported by stacked up milk crates. If you want to throw a really fancy redneck / hillbilly party, use a red and white check tablecloth (paper, of course). Alternatively, you could go for a camouflage tablecover. See supplier 3 for crates and tablecovers.

Create different levels on the food table by raising serving dishes up on pizza boxes or beer boxes / crates / cans.

Road Kill

Scatter the table top with different trailer trash party props such as shotgun shells, small rebel flags, beer cans / bottles as candle holders, anything Nascar, or road kill plush toys such as the ones below available here. (Note: the smaller cheap ones, below left and center, are actually dog toys, whereas the more delux ones, below right, are regular plush toys).

Centerpiece / Drinks Cooler

See if you can pick up an old dryer or similar appliance that's been left for junk and use it as a redneck drinks cooler (see below). Alternatively fill a wheelbarrow with ice and bottles of beer—or your bath.
