4th of July Backyard Party Ideas!
I love to decorate with Red White and Blue as they are such moving and beautiful colors. They can really make a table look so festive. This year I am re-purposing things like old jeans to help set the temperament of a nation fourth of July festivity. I have used the back pockets of the jeans as silverware holders, I cut off the waistband and stuck it onto the edge a red cake plate for another look! I have used some of my red white and blue napkin rings (that I sell on my blog) in a bunch of ways… on old root lager bottles with American Flags stuck in them and piled them around the focal point for an enjoyment new look as well as used them in sets of three… red, white and blue on red napkins.
When setting the table I always attempt to use stature instead of everything laying level on the table. I use footed bowls or cake plates to raise the nourishment and make it stand out. I love using fabric napkins as they really cause my guests to feel special and it helps me to be “green” by not using paper ones. Using an extraordinary focal point really helps set the state of mind and just by checking out the house and thinking outside about the crate you can concoct fun ideas! Consider using picture frames filled with family photos or possibly a couple of salad plates stacked on top of one another put on a cake plate with a sweetheart birds nest topped with a glass cloche! A simple market purchased rose bunch is show stopping when you separate the flowers out and line up a couple of simple glass vases or canning jars and just spot one blossom in each glass container and afterward line them all up in the focal point of the table. Stop by my blog and see the various enjoyment and creative ways to set your fourth of July table.
Whatever you choose to do to commend the fourth make it simple and agreeable and most of all spend it with the ones you love. Red White and Blue, Watermelon, Homemade frozen yogurt, Burgers flame broiling on the barbecue and afterward the finale…fireworks! It just does not beat that does it? I love the fourth of July and all it encompasses with praising our opportunity and contemplating every one of those that have gone before us and sacrificed so much….even their very lives so that we can appreciate the excellence and opportunity here in the United States of America.
