Summer is in full swing and Fourth of July is approaching fast! Fourth of July is the third most celebrated holiday in the US and it is all about gathering around the table. Since the table is the centerpiece of this popular celebration, the table setting is the most important decor for this holiday.
The traditional color scheme for the Fourth of July is red, white and blue, but this bold color scheme can quickly turn gaudy and unflattering with the wrong decoration strategy. There is an easy way to create a very sophisticated yet whimsical look that will delight your guests. Start with a classic placemat on a neutral tablecloth for elegance, then add creative and lively embellishments for playfulness.
The Patriotic Flair
The Splatter Placemats in red or blue are a perfect foundation for a chic table setting. Either mix and match the red and blue, or stick to one color variation. These stylish placemats can be repurposed all year round for other events or as staple pieces in your home decor.
Pair with the Wood & Stripes Napkin Rings to add the stripes reminiscent of the American flag to your decor. Just as with the Splatter Placemats, you have the flexibility to either mix and match red and blue, or stick to one color variation for a uniform look. For a more monochromatic look, you can accessorize with the Rope Napkin Rings in navy. These chic napkin rings can be used for any occasion.
Turtle and Starfish decorative objects are such an enchanting and amusing adornments to add to the table setting. These fun sea creatures add that modern bold pop of color and will surely put a smile on your guests’ faces. Use them as a casual home decoration throughout the summer once Fourth of July passes.
