Who wants to see some super easy Fourth of July Tablescape ideas? I know I'm not the only mama who loves doing it up for any and every holiday right? And the Fourth of July just so happens to be one of my favorites. It could be because my baby boy was born two days after the 4th and I can very clearly remember awaiting his arrival as my family celebrated around me that year. Now every year since I'm reminded of that special time.

Easy Fourth of July Tablescape Ideas

My biggest tip for decorating for any holiday is to shop your home first. Take a look at the linens, paper goods, decorative accents and whatnot that you already have on hand before you go shopping. Then you can mix in some new pieces to get a fresh new look. I, for instance, already had red placemats, white napkin holders and blue candleholders. These red, white and blue pieces were a great place to start with my Fourth of July tablescape.
