The right props and costumes will contribute to a parade float that is “oooh and ahhh”-worthy. Besides providing basic parade float do-it-yourself materials, look to ShindigZ Party to supply just the right finishing touches to dozens of the hottest summer parade themes.
For the red, white and blue themes that accompany the 4th of July season, look for patriotic decorations in materials such as vinyl, corex, and fabrics that will stand up to outdoor use and make great props. Coordinate with star-patterned poly vinyl and embellish with bunting, streamers, flags and stars. Finish with USA tee shirts and Spirit of America party apparel.
Nautical themes call for fish nets and plastic life preservers, anchors and captain’s wheels.
If your plans are for “luau,” “surfin’ safari” and other beach-related and tropical themes we’ve got plenty of great materials for building props, such as raffia, scene-setter vinyl rolls, even palm leaf thatching! Look also for ready-made props like surfboards and ukuleles, and wearables such as beachcomber hats and grass skirts.
Dress the straw bales or hitching post of a Western theme with barbed wire garland, plastic wagon wheels and steer skulls. We’ve got all the cowboy hats and bandannas you’ll need, too.
