Below are my redneck party ideas with tips and suggestions for redneck party invitations, white trash party food, trailer trash party decorations, and hillybilly party games.
Check out this collection of redneck photos for inspiration to get you started:
To create 3D invitations to compliment these redneck party ideas, pick up an economy pack of 'Billy Bob' redneck teeth. To use these as invitations for your trailer trash party just write or print all your hillbilly party details onto a small tag and tie this onto the teeth (see Using Tags on the Create Invitations page for examples).
Another option is to pick up some empty plastic beer bottles and print off your own invitations in the style of a beer label. Include all the party details in the label then apply to the bottles and send these out (empty) as the invitations for your white trash party. Or you could just print off a label for your own brand of redneck beer and attach the party details to a tag (as explained above).
If you do a Google search for 'redneck clip art' or 'confederate flag clip art' you can find some free graphics (like the ones on the bottle below that I knocked up) to help you create a beer label that fits with these redneck party ideas.
For the invitation wording, include plenty of hillbilly words and phrases into your redneck party ideas, ex:
There are also some redneck invitations available online which you can have personalized, such as the designs below. See here for a full range.
Alternatively, for a budget option you could use this ready made fill-in style invitations where you just hand write all the information.
You can add some extra embellishment to your redneck invitations by using these themed postage stamps.
Note: These stamps are only available in the USA
Here are some drinks suggestions to go with these redneck party ideas.
No hillbilly 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.
Wine should be from a box, or serve fruit-flavored, screw top sweet wine coolers such as Boones Farm.
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.
Alternatively, just stick with a classic Beertini aka Redneck Martini (right, 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.
These red, white, and blue shooters (right, by Annie Marie Helmenstine on about.com) could be renamed 'Rebel Flag' shooters.
Make them red, white and blue for an extra patriotic touch.
Below are some food suggestions to go with my redneck party ideas. A lot of these trailer 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.

Here are some trailer trash party games to go with these redneck party ideas:
Hold a competition to see who can spit a watermelon seed the furthest.
Like apple bobbing but with delicious pig's feet (mmmmm!). See how many pig's feet people can fish out of a tub of water in 1 minute using only their teeth.

Like regular bowling but with a frozen turkey. Oh, and use Mountain Dew bottles as pins.
See who can eat the most Twinkies in 2 minutes.
Hold a Spam sculpting competition and see who can come up with the most creative sculpture, such as this 'Spamhenge' below. Give the winner a Spam cookbook.

Set up a shooting range by balancing beer cans on a wall and have people use a sling shot to knock them off.
See who can produce the longest or loudest belch
Use this life-size cardboard stand-in to create a hillbilly party photo op for your guests to have their photo taken with.
See who can toss a toilet seat the furthest. Alternatively stick a pole into the grass and see who can ring the toilet seat around it.

There are also several Redneck games available, such as this Jeff Foxworthy 'You Might Be a Redneck If....'.
