When I posted my Memorial Day table last month I had mentioned that I would like to try something a little different for my Independence Day tablescape. Though I did end up changing it up a little more than I planned (I didn’t want to bore everyone)! If you love tablescapes as much as I do and are looking for more inspiration, check out my free e-book featuring twelve of my favorites!
I don’t usually go too crazy with the “theme” stuff because I think it can get a little overwhelming. I like it to feel fresh and patriotic, while still being uncluttered.
Here’s my version of a simple Independence Day tablescape….
I didn’t do a traditional floral centerpiece because I wanted it to feel rustic and casual. So I just used my iron lantern in the center, and flanked it with the chicken wire votives. And of course, since it’s the Fourth of July, you have to have flags! I filled some red buckets with sand and stuck the flags in those. So simple and easy! And I like the way it turned out.
I’m in love with this runner! When I couldn’t find more antique grainsack runners, I was looking all over the internet for a reproduction that was a good one (easier said than done!) I finally found this one at Sundance Catalog and I can’t believe the quality! It is super heavy linen (just like the antique ones) and it washes well and gets softer over time. I liked it so much I ended up buying it in both the red and the blue.
Red placemats and blue napkins are simple but continue the simple red, white and blue theme.
