5 Tips for 4th of July Table Settings

  1. Red, White, and Blue Color Palette: Embrace the patriotic colors by using a mix of red, white, and blue tablecloths, napkins, and decorations. It instantly sets the mood and ties everything together. You can even get creative with star patterns and flags.
  2. Create a Focal Piece: The centerpiece to your table is so important and the main focal point of your whole set up. Whether it is a big ceramic vase with flowers or mini flags, make the center of the table the statement and work around that for the rest of the decor.
  3. Mix and Match Tableware: Don’t stress about everything matching perfectly. Mix and match different plates and glasses in complementary colors like blue glasses with red plates. It adds a fun and eclectic vibe to your table.
  4. Outdoor Friendly: Since it’s likely a summer affair, don’t forget the practicalities. There are so many stylish and durable outdoor-friendly tableware that won’t break easily that is perfect for backyard bbq’s or dinner parties.
  5. Mix and Match Height: Create interest across the table with objects of varying heights. Be sure to keep everything below eye level so it is easy to see gets seated across from you.
