Easy Red, White and Blue Decorating Ideas
An All-American Fourth of July mealneeds a tabletop to match.
Fashion easy place mats out of burlap fabric — or vintage farm grain bags, as we did. Using fabric glue, attach a denim pocket (cut from worn-out jeans) to each place mat to hold a bandana napkin and utensils. To emphasize the color scheme, stencil a bright red star on each pocket. Mix and match red, white and blue dishware. In honor of the date, display metal 4 house numbers inside vases filled with holiday-color candies. Insert classic sparklers or berry skewers decorated with colorful ribbon "flags."
