In this post: Patriotic decorations for July 4th can be kitschy. If you prefer elegant Fourth of July table decor, here are some ideas to honor the holiday in style.
While everyone enjoys a great party or barbecue for the Fourth of July, the festivities often start later in the day. Since we’re generally out in the evening, I like to do a table setting for an intimate brunch. As always, I start with a great print that defines my color story, here provided by the red, white and blues in the silk scarf, thrown atop the bistro table in lieu of a tablecloth.
Red roses are combined with white and blue hydrangea for the floral arrangement, which is punctuated by barbershop striped straws.
Candles and blue bottles help drive the theme home on the mantelpiece which serves as a backdrop for the setting.
The embroidered stars and ticking stripes pillows are among the key ingredients that tell the story of what this celebration is about.
What is a celebration without a little sweet?
Punch is served in crystal flutes with the whimsical striped straws.
I use my solid pieces over and over, including red linen napkins, navy salad plates, white dinner plates, as well as gilded chargers with beaded edging. The interest in this place setting is enhanced by the cottage floral butter plates. (See below for resource list.)
The book no American home should be without.
Happy Independence Day to all!!
