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 several neighborhood events, and a little antique shopping plus we have some family popping over for the Fourth.
Today I wanted to share our very patriotic Fourth of July tablescape to hopefully give you all some inspiration for your own tables. 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. She let’s dive into the details, I found these really cool galvanized metal chargers, over the summer. I thought they matched the theme nicely especially with the addition of the galvanized pails. In fact, they work so well, they may be my new favorite table charger right now. I have a feeling your going to see a lot of them going forward since they seem to work with everything farmhouse.
These touches of faux grass adds a nice touch of the outdoors with all the bugs in all the comfort of air conditioning, lol. I really love how just a pop of green to all the red, white and blue levels this table out. 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. In fact you could totally add sparklers to these pails for lighting later, outside.
Sipping sweet tea and lemonade out of mason jars is such a southern thing, and works well with the theme. I to say I use mason jars for everything! You can pick you a case for a reasonable price and not even worry about it one breaks.
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.
My must have quenesstinal red napkins, these guys pull double duty thought out the year. You will see them at Christmas and Valentine’s Day, they are a staple in my entertaining linen closet. The runner is simply homemade a white runner and added some of the flags down the middle after removing the stick. Actually a few were not attached very well, so they were already coming off the sticks, so life gave me lemons and I made lemonade in a mason jar, lol! Sometimes it is 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. 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 items can really save 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? Well 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 has a great group of Egger’s in the neighborhood too. Be sure to check out how we utilized the leftovers and made Cowboy Nachos and here is my link to my homemade lattice top Apple Pie!!
