Patriotic Tablescape

Hello sweet friends and happy Sunday!  July 4th will be here in just a couple of days so it's time to be outdoors and get the grilling started.  And with summertime, the entertaining should be easy.

Staying with the traditional and classic color palette of red, white, and blue never goes out of style for celebrating the 4th of July. Bright place settings with mixed china, flower arrangement, and fun accents come together in creating this bold and festive table. Begin your patriotic tablescape with dinnerware and napkins in shades of blue, red-and-white laid on top of a galvanized plate charger to give your table a casual feel.  Keep your color theme going by adding colored flatware and glassware, and complete the look with assorted mini lanterns and votives.  

Don't be afraid to layer plates and linens, mixing colors and patterns to achieve combinations that are relaxed and add interest to the table. Use a plate with a fluted design in your plate stack. It will add visual impact interest to your place setting.  Don't worry about being matchy-matchy!!  This is when you get to have fun styling your table.

And don't forget to add something special at the top of your plate stack.  A whimsical napkin or fun object that ties in with the theme of your table will definitely elevate your table setting    

Always think outside the box. Fresh flowers are our go to for creating a focal point, but why not add an element of the holiday to you floral arrangement.  It could be small American flags to celebrate the Fourth of July, or the bright, bold pop of red bandanas used as napkins.

Lastly, relax and remember there aren’t any rules other than to enjoy the occasion and the friends and family that are making your dinner party more  special. Your goal is to create a unique table that speaks to you, filled with pieces that speak to you, make you happy and bring a smile to your face.  

Have fun creating sweet friends and happy Fourth of July.
