There’s definitely a pattern emerging in all these ideas: layering plates for each placesetting, gingham accents, and striped table runners.

Red, White & Blue Summer Entertaining Inspiration

Blue hydrangea are so perfect in a rustic wood box for a long centerpiece:

Nostalgia & American Red, White and Blue

This assemblage is a call to collect red, white, and blue vintage all through the year and gather it for seasonal decor in July.

Do those containers bring back memories?

    when it comes to celebrate I guess only the Spaniards can beat the Americans. Such a nice table setting which
    shows that not only food is important.
