Well, I don’t know about the weather where you are, but this is my first full week of sunshine since last fall, and I’m positively giddy! With Memorial Day behind us (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 patriotic table setting that would be perfect for the Fourth of July, Labor Day, or even a backyard bbq!
I wanted to create a table for Independence Day, but I also didn’t want it to be too theme-y, so I started with some 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 from Home Goods.
I added some simple chicken wire candle holders, but it was so windy today the flame kept blowing out!
I love that the floral plate is a little unexpected for the Fourth of July, but the color palette makes it work!
To add that patriotic touch I tied some small American flags to the flatware with some twine. So cute and so simple!
The red and white gingham placemats continue the theme without taking it over the top.
The white roses are from the garden and create a simple centerpiece in a vintage French zinc bucket.
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 most of what I used below!
