It's Not Too Early to Plan for July 4th

There is no tablescape I like to design better than a patriotic one. With the 4th of July fast approaching, my tablescapes and decor to celebrate our independance are on my mind

Below is one of my favorite tablescapes.

I used the tablecloth again for another patriotic table. Click here to review it. 

Another favorite for the 4th was this setting. Click here for a review. There's that tablecloth again draped over an ottoman. 

Now for the planning part

1. You can start thinking about what tablecloth you might like to use for the 4th. Do you have an old favorite or something new to use. Kohl's has several patriotic tablecloths on sale.

2. How about placemats. There are several patriotic ones also at Kohl's and at a good price.

3. Plan for a centerpiece. I just Googled patriotic centerpieces and saw several I could easily put together.

My favorite might be the vases with blue water. I might be able to substitute shasta daisies and red roses in the jars since I have them growing in my flower beds. I'm sure I have some small flags to use. So no cost for the flowers and flags.

I'll give you a peek at two items I'll be using for this year's tablescapes for the 4th and I promise I'm not using my favorite patriotic tablecloth seen above.

On the dining room table, you will see my American flag placemats and a paisley print tablecloth. I bought the placemats at Kohl's last year on sale and put away for this year. 

On the kitchen peninsula, you will see this patriotic placemat which was also from Kohl's last year on sale.

I have a centerpiece in mind to use too, so be sure to check back to see these placemats in action for the 4th and a beautiful centerpiece on the table.

  3. It's always nice to go back and look at our past posts. Your patriotic posts are definitely worthy of enjoying again and again. Your centerpieces are always fabulous as are the details to your scapess. Love your stars and strip pillows, I have one I love bringing out. Love the blue water in the little vases, so pretty. I need to get busy! Thanks for the inspiration Judy…….
