patriotic table decor

independence-day-tables2

In search for a few table ideas for our family fourth of  July gathering this weekend, I liked these the most. The image above is from Pottery Barn. My favorite is the berry cupcakes… imagine that!

independence-day-tables

These are both from Martha Stewart and I have to admit that my favorite pieces are props in the background: the bucket with ribbons and the red, white and blue lollipops. Just goes to show that you can dress up any table with a few simple accessories.

Happy 4th everyone!
