4th of July is next week! How can that be possible? It seems as if we were just thawing out from winter and entering into spring and now summer is officially here. It’s been hot here in Nashville and has certainly felt like summer outside for a few weeks now. Today I am sharing a fun table setting that is patriotic and perfect for 4th of July celebrations.
My mom is hosting 4th of July this year and so we spent yesterday afternoon pulling out decorations. I wanted to go ahead and share the table setting just in case anyone else needs inspiration for their own table.
We went for a rustic country look for our table setting using lots of wood and metal decorative pieces. I think it’s the perfect vibe for a summer celebration.
It was mom’s idea to mix it up a bit and use two different alternating place settings on the table. We used the same round placemats for all of the settings with matching napkin rings which gave it a more cohesive look. I love how it turned out!
Both the dinner and salad plates are from the Pottery Barn Cambria collection in the colors red and stone. The anchor printed dessert plates are by Max Studio and the blue gingham dessert plates are by Storehouse Outdoor. I’ve linked similar ones at the end of this post.
The cute galvanized metal bucket centerpieces were made by mom. She lined each bucket with a red napkin and used a piece of styrofoam that we cut to fit inside of the bucket to stick the star-shaped candles and American flags in.
Instead of cups, we used mason jars with lids and paper straws. It’s a great idea for a holiday like the 4th of July when guests will be going outside to enjoy the festivities and can take their drink with them.
The wooden lanterns in the center of the table are from Pottery Barn but they are no longer available. I was able to find something similar that I linked at the end of this post.
We continued the decorations onto the bar where we have extra straws, plates, napkins, and mason jars. There is also a drink dispenser to keep guests from having to leave the dining room for refills.
A little red, white, and blue candy makes a cute addition to the decor and provides guests with an option to grab treat after their meal.
Be sure to check back after the 4th of July to see a recap of our celebration.
