4th Of July Tablescape!

By Posted on 4 2 m read

Good morning friends!! I’ve finally put together my own idea of a 4th of July tablescape! I wanted to re-use a lot of things I already owned which was the silverwares, rattan chargers, my glass hurricane vases, mini glass votives for citronella candles and of course my textured white pillows for the host and hostess chairs. In order to make it holiday worthy, I did end up buying new plates and the mini American flags. I also didn’t want to overdo it with being too “theme-y”. I did want to buy something that I could re-use every year to be wallet friendly. Here is a funny little story on the hydrangeas centerpiece for the table! I had bought fresh bouquets a few days prior at Trader Joe’s and it was already wilted by the next day! 🙁 So I googled and tried the boiling water trick and it still didn’t perk right back up after a few hours so I ended up having to discard the whole bouquet in the trash bin! These photographed floral centerpieces are the faux ones I ran out and bought at Michael’s! I have no shame since I knew they would also hold up and photography well in this crazy Indiana humidity! 😉 I hope my 4th of July table setting will help inspire you with your very own table decorations for the 4th! I’ve provided all the shopping links for you below and the only exact items can’t link is the big glass hurricanes for the candles. Those I had bought probably 5 years ago from Pier One imports so I linked something else that is similar for you! Happy 4th of July friends! May your day be patriotic and celebratory!

Summer Outdoor entertaining!

I absolutely love dining alfresco in the summer time and now I am so happy that I get to do it in our very own backyard! The patio got poured, set and finished at the end of April. The patio table set was ordered back in late March and just now finally got the missing table delivered in early June! While waiting for all the big ticket items to arrive or be completed, I slowly ordered and collected all of the tabletop settings. Then last Thursday evening, I hosted a very small girls night in last week and took photos to share with you! It was so nice to get dressed up with friends and sit at a table that looked and felt fancy-like! We all sat at the table, drank light refreshments and ate off of the charcuterie board that I quickly made up! Laughter, good food & drinks with friends are the perfect recipe for summer outdoor entertaining! I am so glad summer is now finally here aren’t you?!


Side note: Everything linked below is what I used for the table set. The marble cake stand was given to me by a dear friend when we first moved into our new house so I linked a similar option for you! The vase is no longer available so I found a similar option and the flowers are fresh blooms from my local Trader Joe’s market!
