We’re getting ready to head out of town to celebrate our anniversary but when I saw these ruby red carnations and white mums in the grocery store I couldn’t resist them. I immediately wanted to show you how to do a pretty 4th of July table using these inexpensive flowers as my inspiration.
I brought the flowers home, laid them on my kitchen island and went and pulled out the coke bottles I used for centerpieces at Patrick’s graduation party a few years back.
Then I cut a runner using pinking shears on some red and white ticking I already had. I’d originally bought the fabric for a pillow-I-never-made and I thought it would go perfectly on a casual table.
I brought out the napkins I’ve used at Christmas—they’re red with white stitching…
I cut up some paper towel rolls and made these cute firecracker place cards-party favors for the table. If you missed this post you can click HERE to see how I made these.
I tied last year’s ribbon on a lantern from the bookshelf and bought a few 50 cent flags to slip into a couple bottles…
I think my favorite thing about this table is the red and white ticking with these flowers…
I just can’t stop smiling when I see them inside the coke bottles.
What do you think?
