My Simple Patriotic Table Decor created a fun atmosphere to enjoy for the summer season. I shopped my house for pieces and you can too.
We dine at our kitchen table almost every day so that’s the one I always enjoy decorating. We did dine at this Patriotic table most of the summer.
The first thing to do when creating a seasonal tablescape is to shop your home for pieces which may match.
I created some layering by beginning with an everyday vinyl tablecloth on the bottom. It was a grocery store find. Then I placed a square of burlap in the center of the table and then the red fabric place mats.
The dishes are from my cabinet and are used often. Nothing fancy schmancy with this Patriotic table decor because we will be having our meals right here.
It is entirely possible that I may be considered a bit of a dish hoarder but in my defense I love to create seasonal tablescapes! We do eat on all of our dishes and use them for holidays as well.
I thought it would be fun to sit a small dish of something at each place setting. Two settings have Red Hot’s candies with an American flag pick and two have marshmallows with the same pick.
Yes, I did leave the Red Hots sitting out and the grandchildren enjoyed eating them when they visited.
The marshmallows disappeared first. Do you ever think that a marshmallow is good to have around to satisfy a sweet tooth from time to time. Did you know the bag says they are fat free? That makes up for the calories, right!
I love these little vintage Bicentennial High Ball glasses. I picked them up from a thrift store years ago for next to nothing. They have never been used but I enjoy looking at them.
Do you see the inside design on the back side of the glass though the liberty bell on the front? You can’t see that picture on the back of the glass. It’s on the inside for you to view through the Liberty Bell. Isn’t that neat? The back side of the glass pays homage to the Declaration of Independence.
You simply must include a vintage Mason jar in a southern summer tablescape, right?
My Atlas Mason jar is an Estate sale find. It’s tall and narrow making it a perfect vase for red and white paper straws and another small flag.
My husband and I spotted those cute blue bottles at Cracker Barrel last season and just had to have them! They are too cute! I used them in a centerpiece of aqua blue in my dining room.
I made the centerpiece last summer. I know, I didn’t share that craft on the blog but I didn’t take any step by step pictures.
It’s made up of silk carnations and decorated with Dollar Store pinwheels, American flags and Patriotic ribbon. I curled some silver pipe cleaners to add some sparkle. I used a foam insert which is not glued into the galvanized bucket. I picked that bucket up at a yard sale many years ago. Prior to using it for this Patriotic centerpiece, it held potpourri.
My hubby and I have enjoyed the ambiance created by the Red White and Blue Table decor. It’s summer foods season which makes dining more fun too.
