July 4th | Festive Table Setting

Tuesday, July 2, 2013

With summer in full swing, what better way to celebrate than with a festive 4th of July party!  Blue and white checkered fabric was used for a tablecloth, vintage napkins served as place mats and sparklers marked each place setting.  Matchsticks were covered with an american flag printout and centerpieces included fresh blueberries and recently picked hydrangeas.  An old potato sack was pinned to a near by Magnolia tree and a wooden star was lit with a string of white lights.  No matter how you celebrate this 
July 4th, we're wishing you and yours a very safe and happy holiday!

  4. Gorgeous! Especially love the vintage napkins as placemats. Just found your site from the handmade home and love it already!

  5. You have some fantastic ideas to celebrate the 4th. The table wear was nice (napkins, plates, etc) but I loved the fruit skewers shaped into stars. Thanks for the great party ideas for this summer.
