Montage: Red, White & Blue Tablescapes

Every Fourth of July since I’ve been with my husband, we’ve celebrated with a beach picnic on the Cape., almost always at Corn Hill. He’s been doing it with his family and their friends and families for pretty much his whole life. We’ve brought a few of our friends in on it, who’ve brought their friends. It’s a really nice evening, and has a very small town, Americana kind of feel, which is of course fitting seeing how it’s July 4th and all.

It’s one of my kids’ favorite times of year, and not just because that’s the one day other than their birthdays that we let them have a soda. They love running around the beach as the sun goes down, and hiding behind the dunes with summer friends. I always bring tons of S’mores makings and dole them out once the kids have roasted marshmallows on giant sticks. And then there’s the fireworks.

Over the years I’ve collected some festive Fourth of July accoutrements, including a bandana beach blanket that I got my sister to make. We always seem to have an abundance of little American flags on wooden dowels too (maybe my father-in-law buys them at the hardware store… not sure). The newest addition to the Fourth of July decorations is a red and white striped tablecloth by LinenMe.

LinenMe is a third generation family business that makes towels, bed sheets, towels, scarves, and throws from high quality Lithuanian linen, which is natural and hypoallergenic. The company’s publicist sent me a linen tablecloth to try tout. It’s strong but soft, and has a really nice feel. I will be bringing it to Corn Hill with me on Friday for our Fourth of July celebration.

I played around with the LinenMe tablecloth last week before I came back to Boston for a few days. It would look great draped over a wood table too. Here are a few photos of the linen tablecloth with some nautical-themed letterpress coasters I picked up at the Kennebunkport Festival last month, plus one of these American flags, some dishware, and wine. (You may have already seen them on my Instagram feed.)

In addition to my mini tablescapes, I’ve pulled together a dozen other red, white, and blue tabletop schemes for Fourth of July entertaining inspiration.
