Patriotic Table Setting in the Kitchen

The other day, I set my kitchen table in a Summer Inspired Setting.  Before I put everything away, I decided to add some red for a Patriotic look...

Summer Table Settings - 2 ways
I loved the fresh simplicity of the blue and white but adding the red really punched it up for the 4th of July...or Flag Day which is coming up too!  Although, I don't think many people are having big Flag Day dinners!

 I replaced the white napkins with bright red ones.

Red, White and Blue Table for 4th of July
I just happened to have the roses since we just celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary!

Patriotic Table Setting with Star Plate
The melamine star plates are from Michael's several years ago.  I used them in another place setting a while back - Patriotic Table Setting.

I stuck a flag in the roses to make them more festive!

Here is a view of the full kitchen.  The red really stands out against all the white!

Decorating the Kitchen for the 4th of July
And we are all set for the 4th of July!  Too bad my roses won't be around by then...I guess someone will have to buy me more!

Melamine star plates - Michael's from a few years ago but these plates would be cute as well. These plates would give a different look but are so adorable!

  2. Love the red additions and those cute star plates. No plans except for decorating the deck.

  3. Hi Shelly, both of your tables are lovely and I agree the reds really gave it a punch of color! We leave tomorrow morning for our family vacation. When I get back I will be doing a patriotic table too. No plans yet but I'm sure we will do something with friends and family:)

  4. Happy Anniversary! The red star plates are an adorable addition for a festive patriotic table setting and adding the flag in the beautiful roses was perfect! Thanks for sharing with us at Snickerdoodle Sunday! Pinned to share :) Hope you have a fantastic week Shelley!

  10. I really love those star plates. Interesting that you got them at Michaels...I've never seen tableware when visiting the store before. Maybe your store carries more neat stuff than ours does, as ours is kind of small. Hope you enjoy your 4th of Judly(and Flag day)!

  11. Happy anniversary. The roses are lovely. Your table is so pretty with your dishes and accessories. Loving the cute star plates. We haven't made any plans as of yet. Thank you for sharing your Patriotic table at DI&DI.

  12. This is the perfect 4th of July table setting. My mom's bday is the 4th so we usually bbq at my brother's lake house and eat off paper plates, but your table is inspiring. Happy belated anniversary!!
