Every year I bring out the red, white, and blue decorations right before Memorial Day, and I usually keep them out through July 4th. I treat the whole month as a “patriotic” season! Also, since we usually have people over for one or the other of these holidays, I wanted to put together a patriotic tablescape that could work for either one. I love doing tablescapes and I know a lot of you do, too, so I compiled a new free e-book with twelve of my favorites (including sources and lots of tips and tricks!)
I love the crispness of red, white and blue, and of course I want to honor the holiday, but I also didn’t want to go too overboard. So, I included a few flags, but not too many, and concentrated on the combination of colors. I may do something a little more decorated for the 4th, but for this weekend, I wanted to keep it simple. Perfect for Memorial Day, Labor Day or even just a summer bbq!
I started with the blue polka dot runner from Pottery Barn, and that set the tone for the whole table. As I mentioned, I wanted it to be festive for the holiday, but I wanted it to be simpler than something I might do for the Fourth of July.
I added red napkins, simple white plates, and my chicken wire chargers. I love these! Unfortunately, they are no longer available. They pop up occasionally on Ebay, but I’ve also linked an adorable galvanized metal option!
