Patriotic Tablescape

Happy Memorial Day! As a proud American, I am so grateful for the brave men and women who have given their lives for my freedom!

Today I am excited to share with you a casual tablescape that I put together for this weekend. While scrolling through Instagram Saturday morning, I saw this picture from Mrs. Erica (the YouTuber that I mentioned on Friday) and was instantly inspired to put together my own patriotic table setting! I love using things I already have on hand, so I went through the house and grabbed a few pieces from my stash. I’ve been keeping house for ten years – some of these things have been around from the beginning.

I went with my basic white plates that work for any holiday, casual linens and red tumblers from Target. The napkins are tied with string to help them hold their shape, and they look just as pretty outside the cup as they do inside the cup!

My centerpiece is something I made last year – you can find the instructions for that project over here. It would be really pretty with some fresh peonies or hydrangeas! I grabbed my trusty star dishes from Dollar General and put my corn on the cob handles in one of them. The other will be perfect for holding a condiment or side.

My new hot dog salt and pepper shakers (from the grocery store!) are the perfect colors for this setting – and what’s more all-American than hot dogs?

  2. So cheery and patriotic! I love that tablecloth and think the gigantic blooms resemble fireworks. 🙂 Those hot dog shakers are so unique….definitely a fun buy! I love finding awesome products at the places I regularly shop.

  3. I love this! I used to have an Americana theme in my kitchen, so I actually have dishes that are red, white, and blue with stars. My mamaw got them for me as my wedding gift. I rarely set the table because I’m pretty sure that, between Kane and the cats, they’d end up on the floor, in pieces.
