White Trash Party Invitations
Invitations set the stage for your party, so be sure yours are on the tacky side. Here are a few ideas for some memorable white trash party invitations:
Do It Yerself White Trash Bash Invitations — First, cut your invitations from brown paper grocery bags (making sure the store logo shows on the back.) Then, write out your party information, being sure to use some misspellings, such as “dait”, “tyme” and “playce”. Finally, distress your invites a little by adding a beer ring or a few cigarette burns. Be sure to let your guests know that this will be a dress up affair.
Newspaper or Toilet Paper Invitations — Similar to the “Do It Yerself” version, only these are written on old newspapers, toilet paper, or old Christmas cards with the pictures crossed out (whatever you have on hand).

**General Invitation Tips** — If you choose to make your own white trash theme party invitations, don’t forget to include the date, location, and time of your event. It is also helpful to put the host’s name, RSVP by date, and either your phone number or email.
Decorating for a White Trash Bash
Decorating for your white trash bash can be almost as much fun as the party itself since coming up with the ideas is sure to make you laugh. One big bonus to a white trash theme is that you don’t have to spend a lot. Goodwill and garage sales can be great suppliers for your party decor. The possibilities for white trash party decorations are almost endless, but here are some of our favorites:
Set out lots of lawn ornaments (flamingoes, gnomes, angels, or whatever you can get your mitts on)
Make a toilet bowl planter — An old toilet can be very versatile. It can be filled with dirt and used as a planter, or filled with ice and used as a beer cooler.
Park cars haphazardly on the lawn
Hang Christmas lights — Inside or out, these scream party no matter the season!
Scatter empty beer cans on the lawn — We want people to feel at home…it is a party after all!
Hang a laundry line — String up old bras, holey socks, underwear and greasy tee shirts
Use an inflatable kiddie pool as a beer cooler
Hang toilet paper streamers
Set out webbed lawn chairs
Cover a few windows — use newspaper and foil and hold things in place with duct tape
Hang some art — use crushed velvet paintings, posters of supermodels or NASCAR drivers, or a confederate flag
Set out spittoons and ashtrays — Old hubcaps work well for either
Make chair covers out of trashbags
Use your washing machine as a handy beer cooler
Setting Your Table
Use newspaper for a tablecloth
Make a beer can candle centerpiece — (See picture) A great accent is to scatter plastic flowers around this to complete the look
Set out boxes of toothpicks — a trailer trash party “must”!
Serve all your food in old fried chicken or margarine tubs
Put out rolls of paper towels as napkins
Plastic sporks make great all-in-one utensils
White Trash Party Food
Good grub is an important part of any party. For a white trash theme party, finger foods work well because they allow your guests to still mingle and hang onto their beer while eating. Here are some white trash party ideas for food and drink:
- Saltines and Cheese WhizChips
- Pork Rinds
- Vienna Sausages or Little Smokies wrapped in American Cheese
- Bologna Sandwiches with Mayo on Wonder Bread
- Pickled Eggs– Or anything pickled for that matter
- Beanie Weenies
- Jello Molds with Mini Marshmallows
- BEER — The cheaper the better, and if you can get the jumbo cans that is a score!
- Jack Daniels
- Punch made with Kool Aid and your favorite alcohol
- Plain Kool Aid
- Generic brands of pop
