So you are planning a Fourth of July celebration and you want to make it festive. Rather than spending a lot of money on Fourth of July decorations to place around your house or yard a greater impact is achieved by focusing on decorating one area.

A Fourth of July tablescape will provide for a festive and functional decoration for your celebration!

Here is a budget friendly, fantastic red, white and blue tablescape idea…

Some of the little pieces which went into this 4th of July holiday table setting are easy details that make a big splash:


– Red Table Cloth (I picked up my linen cloth at Goodwill for $3.00)

– A Patterned Cloth Overlay (I picked up mine from Joanne Fabrics for $5.00)

– Cloth Napkins (I picked up these Paisley Patterned Napkins at Goodwill for $2.00 for the set)

Serving Ware~

– Plastic Plates & Cups (These came from the Better Home & Gardens brand at Wal-Mart for $1.50 each)

– (You can add stemware… we didn’t because we had finger foods)

– Flags or Pinwheels (each from Joanne fabrics for only $1.50)


– Clear Vase (already owned it)

– Flowers (from Sam’s for $5.00 a bundle)

– Blueberries (I actually used leftover right from our fridge)

– Cherries (I used these directly from the fridge too)

– Shish Kabob Sticks (free from our fridge)

– Red, White & Blue Felt Sheets (each from Michael’s Craftstores for only .29 cents)

Here’s a sneak peek at the ‘star stick’ process:

There you have itA 4th of July tablescape for the patio table for a fun pool party, perfect for Independence Day!
