When it comes to me and tablescapes, you may have noticed theme: Rustic Glamour. It’s my go-to look for holiday decor. It’s a way of making glamour seen a little more livable. I want my holiday decor to be elegant but touchable. So I set out to create a 4th of July table that had the same feel as my Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter, St. Patrick’s Day, and Oscars tables. I scoured Pinterest and craft stores for some inspiration, but nothing I found had the elegant feel I wanted.. or it was way too expensive. So after a few trip to Michaels, and a few searches through my tablescape accessory collection (which is becoming quite large… although not nearly as bad as my fashion accessory collection), I found the look I wanted…
I started, as usual, with a burlap table runner. I added navy satin ribbons down the center to feel like nautical stripes (I only did 2 because I ran out of ribbon for 3). Then I used my round table mirror for Michaels, and a cute lantern vase that I found at Michaels on sale (I love the rope detail). I went with faux hydrangeas in red, white, and blue, because I wanted a table that would last a while and I love the colors of these. The deep red, and the navy made them feel sophisticated. I added some mason jars with twinkle lights to feel like a Summer night catching fireflies. For the jars with lids, I taped the controls to the lid… for the jars with flowers, I hid the controls in the flowers.
I also picked up some metal star tags at Target to dress up the jars. I finished the look with metal star confetti from Crate & Barrel that I’ve had for a long time but never used. It’s so great because it has a magnet that you can use to collect them when your done.. unfortunately I haven’t been able to find more of it anywhere…. a Starlet can never have too many stars!
I’m so happy with the finished look. I didn’t spend a lot of money, but I think it looks like I did… which is always my goal!
Here’s what I used:
- Burlap Runner
- Wide Navy Ribbon from Michaels Store
- Round Table Mirror
- Lantern Vase from Michaels Store
- Faux Hydrangeas (more colors in stores)
- Large Mason Jars
- Small Mason Jars with handles
- Fairy Lights in Pure White & Warm White

How will you be spending the 4th of July?
