Summertime Patriotic Tablescape

The most common summertime celebrations are patriotic. Summer kicks off on Memorial Day;  is marked in the middle by Fourth of July, and concludes with Labor Day. This week we celebrate our nation's birthday.

For our Fourth of July celebration, I created a new tablescape with a paisley blue and white tablecloth and red accents.
The chinese lanterns provide height for the table without obstructing guests' views. (The rule-of-thumb is to keep the centerpiece under 12 inches high. Another option is to use a clear vase with flowers starting above 24 inches to permit a clear sight line between guests.)

Between my lanterns, I plan to float white magnolia blossoms in a low bowl.

The starfish will be my nod to the stars and stripes.
However you decorate your table, please remember to take a moment to pray for our nation and its leaders. Happy Fourth of July!
