A simple table set in red, white and blue and featuring white garden roses creates a patriotic table setting perfect for the Fourth of July or Memorial Day!
Well, I don’t know about the weather where you are, but this is my first full week of sunshine in months, and I’m positively giddy! With Memorial Day coming up (the official start of summer 😉 ) and this warm weather, I’m in full-on summer mode!
And in honor of that, I’m sharing a fun and easy patriotic table setting that would be perfect for the Fourth of July, Memorial Day, or even a backyard bbq!
I wanted to create a table that had a patriotic feel, but I also didn’t want it to be too theme-y.
I started with subtle touches of red, white and blue, and added a few flags. This way, I could remove the flags, change out the napkins, and still have a table setting that would work for any summer entertaining that may come about….
As we usually spend our July 4th in the backyard, it seemed natural to set up my patriotic table setting on the patio. We love eating out here during the summer months and try to do it as much as we can. That is, until it gets too hot!
Galvanized chargers from Pottery Barn are layered with two sets of blue floral plates I found at Home Goods.
I added some simple chicken wire candle holders, but it was so windy today the flame kept blowing out! Unfortunately I can’t find mine anymore, but these are similar and super cute!
I love that the floral plate is a little different for a patriotic table, but the color palette makes it work and I love that it’s unexpected!
To add that patriotic touch I tied some small American flags to the flatware with some twine. So cute and so simple!
The white roses are from the garden and create a simple centerpiece in a French vintage zinc bucket.
The red grain sack runner is from Pottery Barn, and is one of my favorites!
I love that this is patriotic but in a subtle way. You could easily remove the flags and maybe the placemats, and use it for any backyard party or bbq. If you want to create something similar, I’ve sourced everything I used below, plus a few other adorable patriotic decor items!
