Can you believe the Fourth of July is less than two weeks away! Where is the summer going?! Today, I want to share my Patriotic Blue and White Tablescape to inspire your July 4th entertaining.

This Patriotic Blue and White Tablescape is the sister to my Blue and White Summer Tablescape with a few simple changes.  Funny story…one of the simple changes/additions I forgot to make was adding small American Flags to my flowers!  We were on Day 4 of having no electricity because of crazy storms in Dallas and this table was the last thing we photographed. I was HOT, sweating and frazzled and totally forgot!  So, for an extra fun, patriotic table, add the flags!

As I shared last week, I love to be able to use items from my home to create a beautiful tablescape.  Don’t be afraid to take something you display on a mantel or shelf and incorporate it in your centerpiece.  I originally used the lanterns on the deck steps at this outdoor party and the many of the blue and white pieces live in my family room.

These darling red and white gingham placemats set the tone for a fun, casual July 4th cookout.  They would be great with just a red and white theme BBQ dinner table setting as well.

I layered these blue and white splatter paint melamine dinner plates over the placemats. You’ll remember them from this summer tablescape.  I’ve loved using them since last summer!  You’ll be seeing them again as they go so well with our new Blue and White Outdoor Living update. If you missed this home tour with five of my other favorite lifestyle bloggers, be sure to check it out! There’s lots of fun summer inspiration there!

The frilly ruffle napkin is a fun contrast with the gingham and splatter painted plates.  I’ve used these napkins so many times.  You can see them here and here.

I have accented the table with these darling felt stars that I found at one of my favorite local stores Nicholson Hardie. I also found them here online if you don’t live in Dallas.  They are actually coasters but add a fun festive element without a lot of effort.

As we entertain more and more I’ve added a few new acrylic pieces like this blue pitcher and shatterproof glasses.  They “live” in the Cabana typically though.  I think we’ll have a big crowd this year, so I’ll be pulling everything out!  I love having a home full of family and friends though!

I’ll be sharing a full boutique of what to wear for July 4th but I’m loving the navy version of my favorite white summer dress.  I’ve worn this dress so much and it still looks great!  This fabric is so great for travel as well.  I’ll be taking it on our family vacation which I’ll share soon! I know the navy will be the same.  You can see the white one here, here and here.
