Easy Red, White and Blue Decorating Ideas
Capture the nostalgia of summertime with an eye-catching tabletop display that combines weathered croquet balls and baseballs. You can place colorful balls in a bowl for a simple look, or nestle them in wheatgrass (left) for a playful centerpiece.
For the wheatgrass display, cover the bottom of a bucket, basket or wood bin with a plastic sheet and fill with crumpled newspaper as a base. Then add a layer of fresh wheatgrass (with roots attached; trays of wheatgrass are available at grocery or pet stores). Cut to fit your container; the grass should stay fresh five or six days. Arrange baseballs and red, white and blue croquet balls on top. To finish, stick several small U.S. flags (4x6 inches) into the grass.
