Holiday tablescapes are my favorite posts to put together and share with you. Whether it’s Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas or July 4th, I always get so inspired. We just finished our outdoor living project and I’ll be sharing a full reveal with you soon but I wanted to share my July 4th Patriotic Tablescape with you today.
This Patriotic tablescape would be good for Memorial Day and Labor Day as well. I love the crispness of blue and white stripes which I told you Friday I’m getting a little obsessed with. The navy striped runner and placemats were my starting point. Adding a pop of red with the napkins gives it a Patriotic July 4th look but would be equally gorgeous with navy and other colors of napkins. You know I’ll add my favorite pop of pink! We use these napkins at every meal. I love a good quality cloth napkin at a great price.
I kept the flowers simple with white hydrangeas and delphinium and used Tiffany Basketweave vases I’ve had for years. It is nice to have some good basics in your “party closet” to use over and over. I’m working on post on my “party closet” and the items you need to have on hand to set your table at a moments notice and will share it soon.
We are planning on having a few friends over for the afternoon this year to swim and cook out. I’ll be preparing this menu featuring my favorite BBQ chicken (order the marinade here) with the addition of Strawberry Avocado Salsa and this dessert and this one, too.
My gorgeous dress has a funny story behind it….I had actually ordered this dress to wear but it didn’t arrive! What’s a girl to do? Text her one of her BFFs 1 hour before the shoot and ask if she has a red dress, of course! What did she text me back? The very dress I’d been eyeing but hadn’t pulled the trigger on! It was so fun to wear that I may just add it to my closet at 40% off today. Thank you TTT for saving the day!
I’m headed to Edinburgh, Scotland today so I hope you will follow along on Instagram and watching Instagram Stories, too. I’ll be posting some great photos on Facebook, too. If you have any recommendations, please leave them in the comments below or on Instagram.
Have a great week!
