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.
