Simple Patriotic Table Decor

Just in time for July 4th, I am sharing a table setting I created for a little Memorial Day celebration last month. For us, Memorial Day kicks off the summer season around here. The weather here has not quite cooperated since then but it is finally starting to feel more like summer. Stick around to see how to create simple Patriotic Table Decor for either Memorial Day, July 4th or any other patriotic celebration.

For this little event, I called in the help of my friend, DeeDee, of Distinctive Tabletop Rental. I do not own much blue or red tableware (yet!) so I wanted to avoid buying a table full of new plates and glasses. It was so nice to be able to choose pieces from her huge inventory of tableware.

The other benefit of renting accent pieces for a party is that you don’t have to store any new tableware you would have had to buy. Bonus!

When entertaining outdoors, I typically like to use table cloths to cover up my patio table and to provide a bit of formality. However, the denim table cloth kept things casual for this table setting. Dining under the trees really created a beautiful atmosphere for this setting. It can be fun to move your furniture into your yard for gatherings such as this.

To create this patriotic table decor, I simply kept my color palate traditional. No flags needed! I obviously used flags around the table but not on the table at all. The red napkins provided such a nice pop of color since most of the rest of the place settings were blue and white.

And if you know me well, you know I love mixing up the glassware. Both of these wine glasses were handblown which made them perfect for outdoor dining since they are heavier than most stemware. You certainly do not want a big burst of wind to knock over your wine glass…right?!

Using red geraniums for the centerpiece was a no-brainer! The color is so brilliant and vibrant. They were inexpensive and could be planted in my garden after the party. DeeDee had the really cool tree stump (which she actually found on the side of the road…true story!!) that I used to raise one of the potted flowers. I have sourced a few great faux geraniums below if you would rather go that route.

The tree stump also tied in with the driftwood chargers so nicely.

To cozy up the area in our spacious yard, I added some ferns, flags, and flowers around the table for a little festiveness.

    Wow, Holly!
    You’ve done it again! This table setting is so pretty! I like the bold colors against the light denim, and I love how you used the two pots of geraniums for centerpieces. The tree stump is perfect for offsetting the flower height. I missed you last week at Homestyle Gathering. I hope you’ll join in this week. The party is open through tomorrow at 7 PM. Have a fantastic weekend!

    I love your classic red, white and blue table! Those driftwood chargers are gorgeous. Red geraniums are a great choice for the centrepiece, and that tree stump is a great find! While I will be celebrating Canada day, it is nice to know that we have such friendly neighbors to our south!

      Hi Maureen! You are so sweet and, yes, the tree stump was one of my favorite elements of this table setting! XO

    Nothing beats red white and blue for making a table look great!

      Yes, ma’am! And it works so great for either Memorial Day, July 4th or even Flag Day. 🙂
