Fourth of July Tablescape

Fourth of July Tablescape

In my last post, I shared how I created the DIY Fourth of July Planter Box that inspired the creation of this Fourth of July tablescape. I created the centerpiece using a wood box and fabric, you can see the tutorial here. I’ll also show how with just a few changes, you can actually create two different tablescapes using the same centerpiece.

I set the table using a blue and white tablecloth, red and white napkins, white plates, clear glasses, festive paper straws and of course my DIY Fourth of July Planter Box.

I also added fun popcorn boxes to each place setting. I was inspired by Oriental Trading and all their fun Fourth of July decor and party supplies.

To recreate the popcorn boxes, I simple put popcorn in  red and white striped popcorn boxes from Oriental Trading and then added in the red, white and blue Rock Candy and USA flag lollipops also from Oriental Trading. I thought the Rock Candy created the perfect “firework” feel to our snack.

As you can see, my niece was very egger to get her hands on one of the boxes.

She was totally in love with the “firework” rock candies.

The popcorn boxes added the perfect finishing touch to our tablescape.

I also changed up the table to show you how with just a couple different items, you can create a totally different feel. Here I used a blue and white striped tablecloth, red and white star plates, white napkins and added USA flags to the planter box.

We also used beer can glasses that I also found at Oriental Trading. Easy changes that make for a different table. Proof that you can utilize what you have and probably make a pretty cute table.

A special thank you to Oriental Trading for sending me items to use in this post. Everything I picked to use exceeded my expectations and created a setting for a fun Fourth of July celebration.

    These tables for the 4th are so great. Thanks for telling us where to get the candy. I love the bright, patriotic colors and fun feel – the rock candy does create an energy, like sparklers. The flag lollipop – perfect. and popcorn boxes for color and design filled with popcorn, rock candy,and a lollipop – genius. I like both ideas for tables. Beer can glasses from Oriental Trading, too? Who knew. And your niece – so cute. So fun to have her involved. All this makes me want to entertain for the 4th! With that kind of table WOW factor, it would be fun. I might work a patriotic cake pop in the mix, instead of a lollipop. You’ve sparked my 4th imagination!
