I don't have any patriotic decorations but wanted the dining room to look festive for 4th of July. I found some red, white, and blue flowers to arrange in little canning jars.
Sweet peas, allyssum, and lobelia.
My mom gave me the linens. I layered a red and white napkin on top of a bright blue table cloth. The playing cards are in the napkin basket to remind us to play a game together.
More napkins on the dresser. I placed some of our history books on display to encourage the children to read them. A few candles and a plant added some more interest.
And here is a picture of the table and dresser together.
I think I need to organize a little drawer of table decorations. Stars, flags, and other little things could be used for more than one holiday and wouldn't take up much room.
