It’s a new week of #DIYyour4thOfJuly and this week we are all about the stars and stripes. Hopefully you caught all the goodies from week 1. Last week I shared printable straw flags and a 4th of July banner. For even more 4th of July inspiration you can follow along on the hashtag over on Instagram where I’ve teamed up with 9 other bloggers and Instagram accounts to bring you some crafty goodness for the 4th of July. Adding on from my America, America! 4th of July celebration from last week, I am sharing even more 4th of July Decor: a 4th of July Tablescape and a party sign that pairs well with this theme.
4th of July Table Setting
Whether you are hosting outside or in, a well put-together table setting can take your party to the next level. I love matching napkins, plates, and utensils to the occasions. For Summer picnics, paper plates can make clean up a breeze. Here I’ve paired my every day dinner plates and topped it off with a paper plate. You could go all real dinner ware, all paper plates, or a mix and match like I have. Whatever works best for you and your party.
Decorations can be simple: I’ve paired a lovely vase of flowers with USA wood letters, but what really makes this table setting pack the festive punch each place setting itself. All of the details joined together make for a bright and fun place setting. Scroll to see all the images, steps to create, and to grab the download for the utensil holder.
Here’s what you need to put this look together:
- Red and White Striped Wrapping Paper
- Utensil Holder File (download below)
Cut the wrapping paper into rectangles to create the place mat. Print and cut out the utensil holder file. I printed one page double sided with the blue background (shown assembled) and for the other set I only printed the first page so that the backside is white. To assemble you’ll fold at the bottom of the blue star area so that it creates a pocket. Glue the edges and once well secured, insert a folded napkins and utensils.
