4th of July Tablescape! -Denim, Old Root Beer Bottles, Add ribbon to white pitcher

Thursday, June 7, 2012



Centerpiece Wednesday I hope you will love all the fun ideas for the

4th of July party!

I started my centerpiece with this fun junk piece from Ki Nassuer's Junk Revolution. It is an old pie tin with wire and an old knob. I love this thing!

JEAN TRIMMED CAKE PLATEI placed the pie tin on top of my red Christmas Cake plate..yessiree! It covered up the Christmas tree that is printed on the cake plate perfectly. I wanted to add some comfy blue Jeans to the mix so I cut up some old jeans!

Once these two item were together I needed some red. So I got out my red and white striped bowlies and filled them with strawberries. I also added some of my Red, White and Blue napkin rings to the centerpiece for more color! Sorry they are no longer available :(I loved how this part of the centerpiece turned out! Rustic and yet new! Colorful and All American!red white and blue tablescape, Memorial Day Table decor, 4th of July table decor,  Red white and BlueROOT BEER BOTTLES

To add to the centerpiece I had kept some of these root beer bottles around because I love how they look and decided to add a Napkin Ring around each neck of the bottle and stuck an American Flag in each one!Root Beer bottles, red white and blue tablescape, Memorial Day Table decor, 4th of July table decor,  Red white and Blue I then circled them around the pie/cake plate centerpiece for display. I love how the glass sparkles in the sunlight.I AM GOING GREEN WITH MY CENTERPIECE :)POPCORN PAPER CUPSNext I stole this idea from Pottery Barn...popcorn in paper cups. I made the cute little paper cups from a regular piece of red paper and newspaper! I just folded them around and added a dot of hot glue to hold together and Voila instant popcorn cups. You can use them for French fries or candies or whatever you want. I found this cute wooden six hole box at Hobby Lobby and knew instantly it would hold my popcorn cups perfectly!red white and blue tablescape, Memorial Day Table decor, 4th of July table decor,  Red white and BlueI added some red white and blue ribbon to the handle and tucked in a couple of flags. Cuteness Factor going on here don't you think! What a great idea for a kids party or a movie night with friends..you can use cute scrapbook paper too! I love how the newspaper cups turned out. So simple and CHEAP!!Then I decided to put my cute root beer bottles in the wooden box too! Just too adorable. I am going to get a lot of use out of this $12.00 box!red white and blue tablescape, Memorial Day Table decor, 4th of July table decor,  Red white and BlueNAPKIN RING IDEASOf course my tablescape is not complete without my napkin rings!! I put three on each napkin for a very full look. They look even better in person! The great thing is you can use them exactly like this for the 4th of July! or any other patriotic event. What about a wedding in red white and blue, or a boys birthday party, a graduation party, Father's Day! I love how beautiful the berries are!Isn't this fun the red napkin on the taupe colored plate with the cute denim silverware holders (they are available for purchase here on my blog) next to the plate.

I love the American flag everywhere on this table!

Here we are peeking through my blue flowers at my table all ready and waiting for my guests.

RIBBON PITCHER

Here is another Pottery Barn Copy cat idea. In there current catalog they show this white pitcher with red stripes. Well I have a white pitcher and wanted it to look like theirs so I added ribbon stripes! Yes!! A little ribbon and some hot glue and HELLO GORGEOUS! Just think how many times I can change the ribbon to match the occasion!! CHEAP!!

Here are my little nugglets! I took these metal votive candle holders (which actually were little watering cans I ripped the spout off of them for now) and popped in some mini muffins.

votive candle mini muffin holder, red white and blue tablescape, Memorial Day Table decor, 4th of July table decor,  Red white and BlueActually I popped them into these tiny little tera cotta pots and then placed them in the votive candle holders. You can actually bake them in these mini terra cotta pots. You have to grease them up and bit and bake them at a low temperature to temper them.

RUFFLED JEAN PLATE HOLDER

Are they so dang cute or what!! OH LOOK I placed them on this cute plate that I had but notice underneath the plate a little bit of jean fabric? That is the rim to a baby hat!! Yeah I cut that up too and it fit perfectly under the plate for a cute little ruffly edge.

JEAN POCKET SILVERWARE HOLDER

Ok now we are on to the silverware pouches that I made! I love this idea because at a buffet silverware is so hard to hold on to especially for little hands. SILVERWARE POCKETS!! Set of four $15.00..purchase here on my blog!



I stuffed them with the cute silverware that I bought at Pottery Barn on Sale for $9.00. These are particularly fat silverware so my pouches are a little tight for them but still quite cute.4th of July Tablescape, 4th of July Buffet, red white and blue tablescape, Memorial Day Table decor, 4th of July table decor,  Red white and BlueI love jean fabric mixed with the red napkins and the beautiful napkin rings!

I hope your 4th of July is filled with family and fun as we remember all those who died on our behalf for freedom here in the greatest country ever... the USA!!

Well, apparently I didn't follow the rules and use a theme post! My bad...
But, since I already linked to ya, you and everyone else will have to see my tea party! Sheesh... why don't I read the fine print?!
But YOUR post- WOWIE!!!! The use of color was so abundant and inspiring. I love, love the idea of using the jeans for the silverware pockets. I recently saw the popcorn cups in some magazine, but promptly forgot about them. Yours are much cooler,BTW. Everything you did here was just perfect for both Memorial Day and Independence Day. Love this new meme! Thanks for hosting.

Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

I want to stand up with my hand over my heart and sing God Bless America! I love your patriotic table. And patriotic done so creatively! Using the blue jeans to accent and to make the flatware holders was brilliant! It looks so Americana.
I must admit my favorite are the dressed up root beer bottles with the American flags. It looks like something out of a magazine!
Thanks for inviting me to Centerpiece Wednesday!

Love all these cute ideas! I missed this the first time around. The muffin holders are great!
I have the flatware too. 3.97 at the outlet. I took it in every color they had!

Alycia Nichols said...

Man, oh, man...your scissors have really had a workout lately!!!! What absolutely CUTE ideas! The jeans waistband around the cake plate is one of my favorites with the jeans pocket for flatware coming in at a close second. Adding the ribbon striping to the pitcher a la Pottery Barn is an excellent idea! VERY cool!!! This table is totally patriotic holiday ready!!!
