Are you getting ready to celebrate for the 4th of July? Are you needing decorating ideas on how to decorate your table? I figured you did, so here are some quick and simple ways to decorate your table for the 4th of July….with a little bit of lake theme décor thrown into the mix…LOL! Oh and don’t forget to click on the video for step-by-step information.
Decorating for the 4th of July can be fun and exciting because it is very easy to decorate with three primary colors….red, white and blue! Now, I did not want to go overboard with the patriotic theme, so I decided to mix in a little lakeside theme décor….and also because that is where my family and I will be celebrating the 4th of July at our lakehouse.
Putting together a 4th of July tablescape is easy to do if you have the basic decorating products….something that has stars and stripes, and is red, white and blue. The majority of my decorative accents, I picked up at the Dollar Tree, Michaels, Hobby Lobby and Walmart and Marshall’s.
In this picture, the 3-tier glass stand I actually made…you can watch the making of this on my YouTube channel, HauteonDesign. This stand is where I placed the cookies and the cupcakes.
This is just a close-up of the tray that has the lakeside theme wording.
You can never go wrong decorating with jars…blue mason jars…great for serving drinks or clear apothecary jars….great for candy storage. I added the red, white and blue color theme with the straws and candy.
Now, you can’t celebrate the 4th of July without eating something in the shape of a “star”. These star-shaped cookies not only are they delicious but look great ontop of these two plates. One plate is of the American flag and the other plate is of the Texas flag. * Did you know that Texas is the only state that is allowed to fly its flag alongside with the American flag….Go Texas!
I always like to personalize any tablescape that I am decorating…and my 4th of July tablescape is no different. I picked up this red letter “B” from Michaels. It represents my last name and adds that touch of whimsical personalization to the setting. The stars and stripes baskest are perfect for holding popcorn, chips or hot dogs and they fit perfectly into the décor.
And now for the finished product….oh wait, I failed to mention the blue fish netting, the “I Love The Lake” picture and the red star lanterns…..LOL!!! The red star lanterns I picked up from Ikea on clearance for only $2.98 each. They stand about 4 feet tall and they actually light up using a low wattage bulb. These are going to look great lit up on the 4th of July. And the fish netting I picked up from an outlet store and the picture from Michaels. Okay, now for the finished product…..
Hopefully, you would have had the chance to read this blog before the 4th of July so that you can incorporate some of these ideas into your tablescape. Have a fun and safe 4th of July…please do not drink nor drive and……. please do not drink, drive or text!!!!
