Summer’s here. And it’s a time we bring out the red, white and blue to celebrate! Today I’m sharing a patriotic vignette for the patriots who don’t necessarily have or love lots of flag and 4th of July decor!

SIMPLE PATRIOTIC CENTERPIECE
Here at StoneGable we are patriotic to the bone! However, for this red, white, and blue kitchen table vignette I decided to use non-traditionally items to show off our patriotism!
Using different red, white and blue dishes and a little help from my gardens I made a simple and doable patriotic vignette!
First, I laid down a fun white table runner with blue ink spots.
What I love about this centerpiece is the only really overtly patriotic element are the two little flags. The whole vignette has a patriotic 4th of July feel because of the red, white and blue linens, tableware and flowers I used!
Next, I corralled all the dishes in a pretty round basket. This is the easiest way to create a focal point on your table. I almost always use a basket or tray as a part of my table centerpieces!
The first thing I put into my basket was a container of pretty garden flowers. I used what I had. My roses and hydranges were in bloom so I put them in a white container and voila… pretty red, white and blue in not so traditional shades!
I really debated about adding the tiny flags, but since Mary’s vignette had flags I decided to use them to pay homage to Mary’s beautiful image!
Then I started to “play with my dishes”. Because this is a kitchen table patriotic centerpiece I grabbed red, white and blue dishes and stacked them!
For me, nothing quite beats a stack of beautiful dishes! Do you see how ordinary dishes can take on a very patriotic look?
This is one of my favorite designer tricks! Never underestimate the power of a good dish stack, my friend! LOL!
What do you think about the striped theme? Cups, napkins…
And this super cute little vase? It’s little wonky askew top makes my heart sing. I love looking for interesting details even if they are barely noticeable!
Why don’t you create a patriotic centerpiece from red, white and blue things in your home! Easy peasy summer decorating!
