It’s almost Independence Day! I love red, white and blue any time of year, but especially for our 4th of July holiday.  I’m sharing some red, white and blue tables today that are cheerful and happy anytime of year, especially in summer. I hope you will be inspired to decorate your own Patriotic Tables to celebrate! Wishing you a beautiful, blessed weekend.

 

 

 

This patriotic table really mixes up the red, white and blue! Not just the colors, but the different prints make this a fun, easy summer table.

 

 

The new country checked plates play nicely with the blue linen napkins. Cheers to liberty, family, friends and the USA look good in the vintage French glasses.

One of my favorite “bowl” finds ever, these antique blue and white flowered cafe au lait bowls add even more interest to this setting. They can serve coffee, but love ice cream and little salads {not as much as the ice cream!!} too.

Patriotic Tables

 

Start the day in the garden with breakfast with your immediate family.  Technically not a red, white and blue tablesetting, but you could so easily add a pop of red by switching out the purple flower in the vase to a red one.  This tablecloth with it’s French provencal pattern is cheerful and bright!

 

 

Adding a linen towel with red embroidery is a fun way to bring on the red too!  I often use the guest towels as large, catch everything napkins!  The antique French enamel coffee pot is happy to serve!

Patriotic Tables

 

Featured in this summer’s Victoria magazine, not technically a table but a mini-buffet.  It doesn’t take much to create a lovely patriotic setting.  Here in our back garden, I pressed the potting bench into service as a dessert station.  It was so easy to create a little patriotic setting using red and white checked bowls and plates, red checked linen napkins, and adding flags.

“May we think of freedom not as the right to do as we please, but as the opportunity to do what is right.”
-Peter Marshall

 

We have hosted many 4th of July celebrations here in the garden, but this year we have been invited to a BBQ by one of my best friends.  If you host this year, I hope you have been inspired to create a beautiful setting with this little look back at some of my favorite Patriotic Tables.

 

I wish you all a beautiful, relaxing weekend celebrating our country and freedom!  Happy Independence Day!
