4TH of JULY backyard tablescape!
As usual I love to get our back patio ready for the weekend and Holiday weekends are even better!! Outdoor entertaining is probably one of my favorite things to do! However constantly buying new table decor can cost a pretty penny. For my 4th of July tablescape I decided to use what I had first before going out and purchasing new items.
To begin I brought out my backyard staple item (the galvanized tray) . I had my daughter make a festive flag table runner to use as the main focal point. Previously on Target runs I had picked up the star straws and the little white "Stars & Stripes" sign. (Both a dollar!)
The red and white and blue pom poms the girls had in their dramatic play bin so I grabbed those and placed them in my Target Olive bucket for some height. I had no flag napkins and was considering running up to Dollar Tree for some but as I looked through my "napkin collection" (we all have one right?) I found some bright red Coca Cola ones! Perfect! Nothing says summer in America like Coca Cola! Going along with that theme I also grabbed my Coca Cola glasses.
The red, white and blue sailboat was already outside as patio decor. I decided to use my HomeGoods gold and white placemats in place of the usual bamboo placemats I use outside.
The red wine glasses are actually acrylic glasses we keep outside hanging up on the Tiki Bar. I grabbed two and added them to the tray decor. I decided since its easier to have throw away utensils outside I needed to dress up some mason jars to display them in. All I did was simply wrap some twine and added to construction paper stars.
The white plates and red bowls came right out of my cupboard!
Isn't the table runner adorable?! Plus my daughter is soo proud she made it!
After all that I realized I had everything I needed! This whole outdoor tablescape cost me zero dollars! More money to spend on food and cocktails for the weekend! I hope you all have a great Holiday weekend!
