The best way to plan a patriotic party is to decide where the table is. I picked the porch for this backyard BBQ party. So I put our wicker furniture outside and brought the back patio table to the back porch.

My son-in-law and I made this table and I have the details on it how to build a farmer’s table. Now you’ve set your July party table. Let’s start decorating the table step by step.

Patriotic tables fabric

First, decide if you want one Tablecloth, Paper or leave the table smooth. I used this towel that I found in the aim Dollar spot last year, but here’s another one similar striped ceiling. Just toss your tablecloth over the table and make sure that there is the same amount hanging on each side. Now let’s create a patriotic table centerpiece.

First, put a red and white buffalo check in the center of the table. I used that Cotton colors plate From my Christmas tree centerpiece Table landscape.

Now put an old or new white or cream colored jug on the plate.

And add old or new Wooden spoon and little flags like this one Betsy Ross flags. Adding an old American flag is the start of adding a little story to your table.

I like to make tables that have a little story or something special about them. I made one years ago 4th of July table landscape and used many of the same table decorations. And this table also takes us back in time.

The jug is a salt-glazed jug from the 19th century. The Wooden rolling pin is also from the 19th century. It belonged to my great-grandmother on my father’s side.

Consider using vintage or antique pieces. You can find pieces in thrift stores or antique stores. Or you can buy a plain white jug and paint blue stripes around it.

Now we’re starting to set the place settings, and again I have a little story to tell.

Independence Day Patriotic Place Setting

I usually design a place setting around a small present for my guests. Since this is a small family backyard barbecue party at home, I wanted to write a bit of history. But you don’t have to have a story behind your table settings for your table.


First, let’s put the dishes on the table. First set down a plate like this one Currier and Ives blue plate. Or you can use a red, blue, or other white plate.

Napkins and salad plates

Then put a white napkin on the plate. And then top the set with another Currier and Ives Salad platter. Or a single-colored plate in red, white or blue.

George Washington’s birthplace

If you are using this Currier and Ives Teller You add a little gradient to your table. The design on this plate is George Washington’s birthplace. This house on this Salad platter is located in Virginia at a national monument called George Washington’s Birthplace. The original house burned down but has been reconstructed for visitors.

As we celebrate America, I thought adding this plate would be fun. This is my favorite part of the table. The land and house where George Washington was born belonged to my 10th great-grandfather, Henry Brookes. He sold it to George Washington’s father. The baby Washington was later born there.

Do you see the connection to this idea of ​​a patriotic decor party? George Washington is one of the Founding Fathers of our country and our first President.

Wooden cutlery

Now we come to the cutlery. Since this is an upscale garden grill, have some fun and add to it Wooden spoons, forks and knives. The wooden cutlery goes well with the July 4th centerpiece.

Next, add jars for coke swimmers. I found this cute Irish coffee cups with a handle on the dollar tree. I love to shop for glassware there. You have many options and you can order online if you have a large number of guests and need a larger quantity. You can check them out Dollar store also for glassware. It’s a great place for shopping.

He was so cute! His favorite part was when I let the cola float in the sweet one coffee mug. He watched every detail as I put ice in the glass and then added the cola. He thought it was cool, but when we asked if he wanted any, he said no. LOL!
