How To Create a Festive Red White and Blue Tablescape

Let your mind go wild when it comes to a patriotic tablescape. Set a patriotic tablescape that your family and friends can remember. That’s when I discovered the red white and blue fans. I knew fireworks won’t be the only thing that would be a hit. Since part of the festivities would be outside these fans will be handy for the July 4th evening. For more ideas on how to create a festive red, white blue tablescape read on!

Blue Hydrangeas

  1.  I started by cutting flowers for my tablescape. These amazing flowers were from my sweet neighbor’s back yard. She let me clip some stems for my patriotic tablescape. I soaked them a day and made sure they didn’t have any bugs. I didn’t find any.

Bright and Blue Placemats

2. For placemats, I used the ones I purchased in Capri, Italy last year. They have the blue and white thing going and gave a Mediterranean vibe which is what my home decor is all about.

Floral Vases

3. For the floral vases, I recycled tomato sauce cans. I purchased 6 of them, made a red sauce for the family that evening, and cleaned out the cans. I was planning on painting them white but everyone said it looked great as they are. Maybe another time I can paint them. I added some glass beads inside the can and filled the can with water to the top. I cut the hydrangeas short so it was like a big ball of fluffy yarn.

Red, White & Blue Fans

4. I love these fans I found on Amazon. There are so many things you can do with them. I decided to add them to the plates as a decorative accent. Here is another decorative tip with the fans. I stuck them inside the hydrangea floral vase. For the purpose of this tablescape, I kept the fans on the plate.

I like to Thank Chloe Crabtree from Celebrate and Decorate for organizing another wonderful tablescape. Stop by and visit more talented blogger’s patriotic tables.
