4th of July Tablescape

Mr. B and I are kind of excited to be in our new home for the 4th of July this year.  We have heard from the neighbors that we *should* be able to see different fireworks displays from our back deck! We are really hoping they are right because I love fireworks!! In honor of the celebration of our freedom, I, of course, set a a 4th of July tablescape.

I found these platters for under $3.00 each at Party City and knew they would be the perfect charger!

I then layered our everyday white Corelle dinner plates, a blue clear salad plate I had purchased for 25 cents each at the thrift store and a patriotic bowl from the dollar spot at Target from a few years ago.

Mason jars will be used to drink from and instead of the more formal placing of the flatware, I chose to place a paper napkin in the jar and then nest the flatware in the napkin.

I filled an apothecary jar with sparkly red basket filler and added flags and red, white & blue star picks. I re-used the painted Ragu Spaghetti Sauce jars I had painted and decorated a few years ago for this table.

I added some silver sparkly finds from Party City at each end and the table was complete.

  2. Love it! I like how you did the flags- I have a few of those in that size I'm looking to place! Those dishes and the tray/chargers are awesome- especially at the prices you got them for! Great idea with the flatware and napkins! I used paper napkins too for my new post and I finally used the little salt and pepper shakers you sent me. Thx again, Liz

  18. Hey Kathe! I'm so enjoying seeing all the Fourth of July tables, as I work on mine. Each one has a different feel and yours here really channels the fireworks celebratory feel. I think it's the red sparkly basket filler and the silver sparkly weights, as well as the stars bursting from the glass holder that do the trick. It's both fun and unique. Nicely done... :-)

  21. I love those chargers, Kathe! It's great to see your mixtures of good deals and how pretty they look together. You've proven it doesn't take a big budget to make a tablescape look festive and beautiful. Those painted Ragu jars are my favorite thing on your table! Hmm...spaghetti anyone? :-)
    Happy 4th!
