Fourth of July Tablescape

Fourth of July Tablescape

Hey Ya’ll,  I hope you are having a fantastic time celebrating  Fourth of July on this long holiday weekend. I know we sure are, we have been very busy with neighborhood events and antique shopping and we have some family popping over for the Fourth.  

I wanted to share our fun and very patriotic Fourth of July Tablescape with you all. As you can see there is no shortage of red, white or blue here. We are  proud to be American’s, celebrating our great nations 241st birthday. Honestly, I think she is looking pretty good for her age. I found these really cool galvanized metal chargers at Hobby Lobby for only $4.99 each, over the summer. I think they match the theme with galvanized pails perfectly. In fact, they work so well, they may be my new favorite charger right now. I have a feeling your going to see a lot of them going forward since they work with everything.  
These cute faux grass and pails came from Ikea. I really love how they add a pop of green to all the red, white and blue. Plus I don’t know about you guys but when I think of the Fourth of July I think of fresh green grass, fireflies, and sparklers. 
Sipping Sweet Tea and Lemonade out of mason jars is a very Southern thing and works well in the Americana catagory as well. I use mason jars for everything!!

DESIGNER TIP: Alright, I am going to give you my El Cheapo trick for getting a bunch of them. These are spaghetti sauce jars from Classico pasta sauce. I actually started saving them in my early 20’s after Ron and I got married. We didn’t have a lot of money back then so if I bought the pasta sauce I would get a free glass, it was a win win for us. Now, I have actual MASON jars as well in the smaller size, but I like to keep these to remember where we came from and how blessed we are now. (Classico Pasta Sauce Coupon Link) No Fourth of July table would be complete without mason jars and stainless steel straws. I love these straw since they never get soggy like the paper ones, they are  eco friendly and reusable, just wash them in the dishwasher. 
I used the quenesstinal red napkins which pull double duty thought out the year. You may see them at Christmas or Valentine’s Day. Honestly you can never go wrong with a red napkin in your linen collection. The runner is simply homemade. I flipped over a existing patterned runner to the white side and added some of the flags down the middle after removing the stick. Sometimes its just so easy I even amaze myself.

To complete the look on the sideboard I added a white pitcher full of antique dyed mini flags. I got free from a friend at Ralph Lauren when they cleaned out there storage locker last year. The rustic red star actually adorned the top of our 15 foot Christmas tree last. Again, like I have always said, I covet items that can pull double duty in my home. A good multi tasking item saves on having a lot things you don’t need, and a clean house equals a clean mind… for me anyways.  So what was on the menu over at Chateau Gainer? My husband recently got a Big Green Egg for Christmas and has smoked everything that will stand still. He has joined an Egg Head Group online and A great group of Egger’s in the neighborhood too. Here’s a copy of our menu: 

Be sure to check out how we utilized the leftovers and made Cowboy Nachos!!
