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

  1. Something to add to the party playlist: “White Trash Holiday” https://www.reverbnation.com/wrayellis/song/13830547-white-trash-holiday

  2. This is great! I have an issue tho. I am doing this with Black People so, what would I call it!? I don’t like using the term “white trash”…it’s rude to use because I am not white.

  3. I can’t believe when I got to the end it said ‘wet t shirt contest for the men’! I was already planning that.The guys, all over 50, 1won’t know. I’ll start it off with the hose and the ladies will all have squirt guns. Then I get to yell….’git his nipples’ ‘shake those bellies’. Too fun.
