July 4th is right around the corner so I thought I would gather up some ideas on how you can throw together a fun festive table with treats and decorations for America’s birthday. Whether it’s a July 4th party, a birthday bash or a backyard BBQ, having a party can be overwhelming, time consuming and expensive. Here a few ideas on how to make your next patriotic party look good and be easy and fun. These ideas include some of my DIY projects and ideas and others are from blogs or websites that I loved. Check them out!
1. Shop your home
Look for anything that could work for July 4th decor. Red, white & blue containers, baskets, jars, and anything with stars on it. Use ribbons, tags, images of flags and stars as added decorations too. They can transform any plain glass jar or basket. Labels are a great way to add some fun to your table too. Make your own or feel free to use the circle labels I created. Click here to download my free labels.

2. Tablecloths & paper goods
July 4th is all about the BBQ and this red and white checked tablecloth is the perfect iconic backdrop for your table. And paper goods are easy too – anything red, white or blue works and you can find these patriotic colors and patterns everywhere. I found tablecloths at our local grocery store for $2.99 and all the patriotic paper goods at the Dollar store. Sometimes these are better options than the pricey party stores.
3. DIY painted flag wood tray
I painted a long piece of wood to look like a flag and I’m using it here to display cupcakes. I can also use it as artwork, decoration, a centerpiece for candles – it’s a great multi-purpose piece that’s easy to make. Check out my painted wood tray tutorial here.
