Besides Christmas, I’ve never really been one to decorate much for the holidays. I get a little overwhelmed with buying things, storing them, and the time involved in making a great décor display.
That’s why I love table décor ideas. Decorating the top of a patio set, dining table, or even a host of picnic tables for an event lends plenty of festivity, but doesn’t require replacing all your wall art, throw pillows, and who knows what else!
These patriotic table décor ideas will give you inspiration for decorating for the Olympics (watch party anyone?), the Fourth of July, or other patriotic events. Some of the ideas require a little pre-planning (i.e. waiting for paint to dry on mason jars) and others can be thrown together at the last minute.
If you are really short on time, make dessert and décor at the same time with this easy American Flag Fruit Pizza dessert. Or, support small businesses and check out the Etsy links at the end of the post with lots of very cute red, white, and blue home décor.
