Patriotic Summer Table Setting Ideas

The Table Runner

You will see that I often re-use items over and over again in different ways. That is half the fun of table settings for me! If you’ve visited me before, you’ll know I love to mix patterns, fabrics, and textures for an eclectic look. This table uses a vinyl tablecloth, Layered with the burlap runner and topped with three check napkins on a diagonal.

The Centerpiece

The centerpiece is a mish-mash of things that I had in and around the house. The daisies came in my Mother’s Day bouquet, along with the blue babies’ breath. I added azalea and greenery clippings from my yard and completed the arrangement with a faux poppy plant in bright red.

The Table Setting

I love to pair colorful dessert and salad plates with plain, white, every-day dinnerware. I often find unique, bold dishes in the most unexpected of places. These adorable appetizer plates came from my local grocery store and reminded me of fireworks when I saw them – they were on sale! Paired with the white dinner plates, topped with bright napkins in red and blue, they make a striking but very inexpensive stack.


Other Decor

My DIY patriotic swag wreath makes its annual appearance – it’s always a favorite for me at this time of year. Of course, I had to add something new – these fun fireworks-inspired tablecloth weights were a cinch to make! I love the fun element they bring to the table.  You can find the DIY tutorial for them right here. To complete the party atmosphere, I paired treat bags in red, white and blue.

SUGGESTED: How to Decorate a Boho Bedroom with Flair

 

We all know how much I love color and pattern, but my daughter doesn’t share that love at this point in her life. She’s more into the minimalistic style. I’m planning out her bedroom makeover and have been desperately searching for inspiration. Along my virtual travels, I came across many examples of line wall art prints that prove sometimes simplicity is good for the soul! I thought it would be fun to come up with my take on this popular trend and share the prints with you.  Because these prints are minimal in nature and don’t follow my usual dramatic-bold-color-lots-of-pattern look, I couldn’t help but add just a little bit of sass to them by adding the cute sayings “So shady” and “So bright.” Life is so serious, I don’t always want my wall art to be!

There are two different art prints in this packet – print one or both! These prints will look great as part of a gallery wall or framed as stand-alone art, especially in an eclectic modern or minimalistic styled home.

How to Create a Beautiful {Easy and Cheap} Red White and Blue Tablescape

Independence Day is coming up fast, which means an opportunity to pull out the red white and blue again! It’s my favorite time of year to get together with family and friends and celebrate the birth of this fantastic country.

 

red white and blue

 

Usually, our entire family (all 20+ of us!) spend the holiday at my mother and father-in-law’s home, swimming, stuffing ourselves with pie, burgers, playing corn hole and enjoying the day together. Even though we don’t spend the day at our home, it’s always fun for me to put together a table we can all enjoy before the big day, so you know I was excited to be invited to participate in  a Red White and Blue Tablescape Blog Hop, hosted by Chloe of Celebrate and Decorate.

If you’re anything like me, you probably love the look of a beautiful, 4th of July Patriotic tablescape, but don’t want to spend a whole lot of money or time putting one together. I feel the same way and thought I’d share a few ideas with you that I use, such as shopping my own home, hitting the dollar store and throwing together a few easy DIYs, such as these adorable cutlery pouches with printable labels. If you like them, download the tags for free by clicking here.

How to Create a Beautiful {Easy and Cheap} Red White and Blue Tablescape

Decide on a Color Scheme

red white and blue - whole table-horizontal2

This is an easy one for a patriotic table in America – red white and blue – but in your corner of the world, it might be different. Here, I stuck with traditional colors and patterns but used muted tones and natural fabrics to tone everything down. Having too much of a good thing is possible! I left the table natural, which I often do, and went with an everyday burlap table runner, which kept my cheap inexpensive accents from looking too kitschy.

Shop both your home and the dollar store for items that can be reused and repurposed

 

red white and blue - centerpiece

 

Balloon weights and star garden stakes from the dollar store work perfectly together to create an indoor fireworks place card.

 

Pair everyday dinnerware with decorative salad plates or colorful napkins to fit your theme

If you follow me at all, you’ll know that I often use our basic white stoneware for tablescapes – I LOVE looking back at all the different ways I’ve been able to use them!

 

red white and blue - setting

 

In this case, I decided to change up my chargers and gave gold, dollar tree chargers a quick Kate Spade-inspired makeover with spray paint and acrylic paint dots. The dots add another dimension to the all-white place setting.

 

red white and blue - layers

 

The napkins are cotton tea towels found in the Target dollar aisle – don’t be afraid to mix and match and to use things different than intended.

Use food as decor

 

 

You’ll serve food at your party, so, why not use that food as decor – it’s inexpensive, practical and gorgeous!

 

red white and blue - aerial2

 

A simple punch made of ginger ale and frozen berries served in a mason jar jug adds color and texture.

 

red white and blue - drinks

 

Cupcakes in red polka-dotted liners and rocket ice pops in shaved ice are perfect desserts and table accents!

 

 

Are you serving food that isn’t in your color scheme? Try serving your hot dogs, fries, and corn on the cob in red check wax paper to rectify that situation instantly!

Mix and match patterns for a fun, eclectic look

red white and blue - place cards

 

Stripes, dots, stars all go together to create a fun, eclectic look. To make this work, be sure your colors are cohesive.

In short: 

  1. Decide on a color scheme
  2. Shop both your home and the dollar store for items that can be reused and repurposed
  3. Use everyday dinnerware, but add salad plates or colorful napkins to fit your theme
  4. Use food as decor
  5. Mix and match patterns for a fun, eclectic look

That’s it! I’d love to know your favorite tips for entertaining. Do you use disposable supplies (perfectly acceptable!) or do you throw a few things together and hope that it turns out (like I do!)
