Table of Colors for July Fourth

After enjoying our Family’s Favorite Tablescape for Father’s Day, I knew I needed to get with the program for July Fourth coming soon.  I don’t think I’ve ever posted two tablescapes in one week.  But, now’s a good time to start, right?

We’re eating our meals inside these days.  With the recent heat, we’re not doing much porch-sittin’ and alfresco dining.  I decided to set our July Fourth table in the breakfast area.

July Fourth Tablescape

There are no stars and stripes, but we have all the necessary colors.

Red, White, and Blue Table Decor

I pulled out the Rooster platter and French Country plates in blue and white – both Tuesday Morning finds from last year.  I found the butter keeper at T. J. Maxx earlier this year.

I keep a half of a stick of real butter in this keeper.  It provides soft, spreadable butter when needed.  I learned last year that it’s good at room temperature for up to a week.

Center Collection

The salt and peppers came from Painter Artist Mom’s collection.  She loves that deep red color.  The pitcher was a discount find at Kohl’s after Christmas a couple of years ago.

I transformed the plain red Dollar Tree tins and will share that how-to soon.  Aren’t they fun?

Happy Fourth of July!

They make perfect holders for utensils and cloth napkins (from 2 Easy Ways to Sew Table Linens).

Plate Stack with DIY Tin

Cobalt blue plates work well over the French Country dinners.  Slightly larger dinner plates peek out beneath for a touch of red – all on top of white DIY Dollar Tree Chargers.

I found the cobalt iced tea glasses at an antique mall Mom 2 and I frequent.  We have so much fun on our ventures.  She’s a real doodle!

I made one slight change to the French Country Plate Shelf.  The plates are now blue for a simple blue and white look.  I guess I should change the tea towel, eh?

So, we’re all set.  Happy fourth of July!

    Another great one Kim! Gosh I wish we had a Tuesday Morning store around here- ours left about 5 years ago. They always had nice brands and interesting stuff to pick from. I like those cute red tin buckets! I don’t blame you for staying indoors especially with the high temps you are experiencing. So far we’re having it mild up here and our biggest complaint are mosquitos which aren’t terribly bad but still annoying! So far the plans for the 4th aren’t anything definite. It’s nice that it’s on a Saturday this year though- it should work out well for many vacationers!

      How you must miss Tuesday Morning! I know I would in your situation. After reading your post, it seems we both have reasons for dining inside. It’ll be just as fun inside. Yes, Saturdays are the best day for July 4th celebrations. It also helps family members travel short distances to celebrate together. It’s a nice way to add holiday days to extend a vacation week, too. I hope you get to do something fun for the occasion. 🙂

    I love this table! Your place settings are so pretty, especially those little red tins. I also like your centerpiece! It’s perfect, not fussy. We’re heading to Texas for a wedding over the 4th. Hope you all have a great celebration!

      Thanks very much! A wedding isn’t something I’ve ever attended on a 4th of July, but I’d bet it’ll be great fun. Safe travels!

      Thank you, Barbara. I hope I can use the tins for other types of tables besides red, white, and blue. They are fun, though!
