This forth of July commemorated our first summer celebration in our new house! I was so excited to have family and friends weaving their way throughout our house for good times and good eats for the duration of the holiday weekend.
I couldn’t help myself but craft up a tablescape for the event. The whole table cost me around $30.00 to purchase the table cloth (which is reusable and was only $2.00 more than a throw away table cloth), four flags, tissue paper, and TONS of sparklers. The rest of the décor I pulled from my collection. Here is some eye candy of the completed tablescape.
I went with bold reds, navy blues, whites, and pops of turquoise blue. I used mason jars and sand to hold the flags, and placed them on two coordinating blue books so they wouldn’t touch the table. I used a computer program to create the banner, sparkler label, and round table signs all in coordinating colors and backed them with bright blue card stock – all which I had left over from other projects. I created the round table centerpieces with flower pots and used floral foam wrapped in tissue paper to stick the signs in. I used tall cylinder vases to put the sparklers and used blue crushed sea glass to fill the bottom. I cut some fresh hydrangeas from the yard to top off the table and used Martha Stewart style tissue paper balls to frame the banner. The table was a great backdrop for food and fun all weekend long!
