We love our Country and think these are great sets to use any time of the year. They are definitely perfect for our National Holidays like Memorial Day, Veteran’s Day, Armed Forces Day, Presidents Birthday, and more. My youngest’s birthday falls on Memorial Day weekend, so they make perfect decorations for both. I love how festive and patriotic our home looks. In the Party Set you get 8 large plates, 8 small plates, 8 cups, 1 tablecloth, napkins, cupcake holders with American Flag picks, and 6 patriotic tattoos. In the Decorations combo pack you get 1 banner, 1 bunting, 3 swirl hanging decorations, and 6 tattoos. The bunting is 12’ long and the banner is 24’ long. They are both a plastic material and are weatherproof. The ties on them are short though. You will need to add some ties to it, to really be able to secure it outside. My husband used Paracord. I love these two sets together. It really ties everything together. The large plates are actually large too. You can fit a real meal on them. They are 12” long and 10” wide. They are not thick, heavy duty plates though, so you will want to watch the weight of the food, if your guests have to carry them around. If you are having people sit at a table with their food, then no issues. The smaller ones are 9” round and are perfect for desserts or appetizers. My son has been eating cookies and his bday cake off of them. He loves the red, white, and blue theme. The little flags are so cute too. I did not decorate cupcakes with them. I integrated them into his cake decorations, for his birthday. You don’t not have to use the cupcake holders only for cupcakes. You can make muffins, and use them for snacks, like M&M’s. You can line little glass bowls with them, and then serve yummy chocolate snakes in them, or candies too. What a cute look that would be. These sets really are nice. I live on the coast, and my outdoor decorations have to put up with high wind, and even rain. They are still standing strong, and look great. I can’t recommend these sets enough.
