How to Host a Red Flag Party

If you want to host your own red flag party, there are a few things you need to do!

  1. First, come up with a list of potential red flags that apply to you. Be creative and have fun with it!
  2. Next, decide on what you are going to wear. This can be anything from a casual t-shirt and jeans to a more dressed up button-down shirt and slacks. Just make sure you are comfortable and able to move around easily.
  3. Now it is time to think about the party space. If you are hosting the party at your house, make sure you have enough space for all of your guests. If you are renting a space, make sure it is big enough and that you are allowed to decorate as you please.
  4. Once you have the space figured out, it is time to start decorating! This is where you can really get creative. Look to TikTok for inspiration or come up with your own ideas. Some things you could do are set up a photo booth, actually have red flags around the party space, or serve red-themed food and drinks. (Read more about these ideas below!)
  5. Finally, think about any games or activities you want to do at the party. This is a great way to get everyone involved and having fun. Some ideas include "Pin the Flag on the Date" or "Red Flag Trivia."

Now that you know how to host a red flag party, all that is left to do is have fun! This is your party, so make it as unique as you are. Embrace your inner red flag, and let your personality shine through.

Fun Party Ideas and Activities

If you are hosting the party, there are a few things you can do to make it even more fun!

  • Set up a photo booth with props related to your red flag. For example, if your red flag is that you are a workaholic, you could have props like a "boss" sign, a desk, or a laptop.
  • Actually have red flags around the party space. This could be anything from actual flags to red streamers or balloons.
  • Serve red-themed food and drinks, like strawberries, cherries, tomatoes, or even a punch made with cranberry juice.
  • Play fun games that revolve around your red flag. For example, if your red flag is that you're a drama queen, you could play an uber dramatic game of charades.

What Do You Wear to a Red Flag Party?

Once you have decided what your red flag is, you need to put together an outfit! If you're going for a casual look, buy a red t-shirt, write your flag on it with a Sharpie, and pair it with jeans. If you have red socks or shoes, definitely wear those as well!

If you want to get more dressed up, you could wear a button-down red shirt and slacks; you might want to write your flag on a piece of paper and pin it to your shirt in this case. No matter what you wear, make sure you're comfortable.

More Tips for Your Outfit

Some other things to keep in mind are as follows:

  • If you are going to be dancing, make sure your clothes allow for it!
  • If it is a summer party, lighter colors will help you stay cool. Maybe you can find a light red shirt.
  • If it is a winter party, layering will help you stay warm. Why not throw on a red sweater?
  • If you are going to be outside, sunscreen is always a good idea!

Have fun with your outfit, and make sure you feel confident in what you are wearing. After all, this party is about YOU and your red flags!
