Patriotic Table Setting Ideas

This post has been sponsored.

This year, we’ll be having our 4th of July cookout at my parent’s house. My father is King of the grill so whenever we have a cookout, we do it at their house so my Dad can cook. Of course, my Mom and I are responsible for the rest of the food and the decorations. I’ve been trying to come up with some patriotic table setting ideas for our cookout. Since we generally eat outside, I wanted something fun and casual. I also wanted to stay way from any food that’s dyed red, white and blue artificially.

I decided not to use a tablecloth and instead go with a table runner. I edged the table runner with patriotic ribbon. I just cut a slit every two inches in a table runner and wove the ribbon in and out. I can easily remove the patriotic ribbon and replace it with a different color for a different holiday.  I tied patriotic ribbon around each Mason jar drinking glass.  I put a few American flags in a Mason jar as an accent.

I added daises to some red, clear and blue bottles and then put the rest in a Mason jar to carry the color theme throughout the rest of the table. Cute red bandanas worked perfect as napkins and they are washable so I can re-use them.

Since we are having the cookout outside at my parent’s house, I decided that paper plates would be the best choice. I  layered white and blue paper plates on top of the red bandana napkin. These cute little red pails can hold popcorn, pretzels or nuts. Strawberries, bananas, and blackberries on fruit kabob sticks make a patriotic great meal starter that’s free of food dyes. Adding a few berries to the water glasses, makes a delicious fruit infused water.

These patriotic table setting ideas would work well for the 4th of July or Memorial Day. You could easily dress it up by using china instead of paper plates or leave it as is and take it out to the picnic table.  Are there any patriotic table settings you’ve used that I haven’t thought of?
