Red, White & Blue Tablescape

July 4th is always a fun holiday to celebrate. And since most people like to be outdoors and BBQ for the weekend, it's easy to throw together a simple and casual look.

Here is my festive tablescape:

I added everything around the tablerunner my mom made me last year. (Here's a look back at it.)

My Ikea cocktail glasses.

The place setting starts with silver chargers, my patriotic napkins from Hobby Lobby, a basic white plate and a decorative blue salad plate on top.

My new Pottery Barn utensils wrapped together with twine.

The burlap-wrapped candles I made a few weeks back.

A blue bucket from Hobby Lobby holds more napkins and would be handy if you want to take the party outside.

And there you have it! Happy 4th everyone!


  1. Very festive Megan! I had not seen those napkins at HL, they are cute! Love the runner too! Great job and happy 4th!

  2. Great holiday fun!!!! Everything is so patriotic looking!!! Those cute buckets are great!!! Happy 4th!!!

  3. Looks very festive, the silverware almost reminds me of a starfish-Happy 4th!

  4. Your runner is wonderful, and with the blue-starred napkins it makes a festive table! Simple and very appealing! Love that flatware!

  5. Love your cute candles!

  6. How beautiful. The flatware tied together is very clever and I love the caddy from Hobby Lobby with the linens in it. You did a beautiful job. The candles were clever too. Thanks for sharing. Have a wonderful 4th.
