My 4th of July Celebration Table Decor Idea

For the 4th of July, we are celebrating with a barbecue.

Since we’ll be grilling and celebrating outdoors, I’m setting my table on the upper deck under the gazebo.

I love how I decorated my table last year, but want to do something a little different.

If you’ve seen my outdoor dining space this year, you’ve seen how pink it looks with my container gardens that are filled with super wave petunias.

So the challenge here will be adding some red, white, and blue touches without totally clashing with my pink container gardens.

Because my backyard gardens are so full of pinks this year, my 4th of July celebration table is neutral and simple with some touches of red, white, and blue.

Making a Patriotic Centerpiece Idea for the Dining Room Table

With every tablescape, I love to start with a gorgeous centerpiece that inspires the whole table.

For this table, I started with this gorgeous grain sack table runner with a blue accent.

And for the centerpiece, I mixed faux and fresh cut flowers.

The centerpiece includes this gorgeous galvanized urn like this one with faux ferns and real touch peonies.

Unfortunately, my peonies are done for the season, or I would have used those!

Peony season is too short-lived. Am I right?

In addition to the faux centerpiece, I added some fresh-cut red and white roses from my garden.

I used THESE as the vase for my cut flowers.

Patriotic Table Setting Idea

For each table setting, I started with cedar branch placemats that I got from Pier 1.

As an aside, I don’t think they sell these anymore.

Sad I know because I use them in almost every tablescape I create!

I love the garden-style vibe they add.

For the next layer, I added these rustic rattan chargers.

I love how they look with the cedar branch placemats and my dinnerware. It’s such a pretty combination.

Then I topped each charger with dinnerware like these together with pretty blue linen napkins similar to these.

And I ran the linen napkins through wood napkin rings like these.
