I love any holiday! July 4th celebrates America’s Independence Day from England starting in 1776. Most of us shop for items to celebrate this fun holiday July party.

Today, I’ll show you a quick and easy 4th of July table decor.

I have always enjoyed setting a fun table, WAY before I became a blogger and influencer.

I have quite a few red, white, or blue tablecloths, placemats, napkins, etc.

But, this past week, Mr. G.Q. and I had our kitchen, great room, and dining room painted. We built this home eleven years ago and at that time faux painting was “in”. Now, not so much. After living in sunny California for the past few winters, we now favor more of a clean, simpler vibe to our walls.

Our kitchen cabinets are Dove White by Benjamin Moore, so we decided to use that same color on our walls. It turned out GREAT!!! See if you love it like we do! It is definitely a crisper look when combined with my patriotic table setting.

4th of July Table Decor (How Should I Decorate My Table?)

Here's a perfect 4th of July table decor!  There are navy placemats, star-shaped ceramic salt and pepper shaker (so cute!) and even flag-inspired dessert plates.  Lastly, the patriotic centerpiece is an Uncle Sam nutcracker.

There are all kinds of 4th of July table decor ranging from placemats, tablecloths, patriotic centerpieces, and all types of red, white, and blue fun stuff to consider. See if you have any items in your hutch that would work. Then, if need be, supplement with some of these very fun links. Remember, red, white, and blue items work so well for Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, even Flag Day, and Veterans Day.

What Should You Decorate for the 4th of July?

I think you should decorate any space that seems easy to you to do so. I put flags in my window boxes, just to make things cuter. Mr. G.Q. and I are Empty Nesters. We have two of our kids and their families nearby, but most weeknights, we just eat dinner as a couple. On those nights, we eat at the small glass table in our kitchen. I call it “eating at the cafe”. Here is my 4th of July table decor for the cafe!

How Should I Decorate My Table for July 4th?

I also found the most incredible flag pennants at Homegoods (very similar, here) and I went crazy with them! I strung them over my French doors that are right next to my little glass cafe table. Don’t they look fabulous?! I could have just stopped there, but why…?

This is a photo of my glass kitchen table for two overlooking my deck which has flower boxes is filled with red geraniums and blue spikey flowers.  Above the French doors are a patriotic Anerican flag pennant banner.

Steps to Making the REALLY CUTE 4th of July Table Decor

Here is the table with navy blue placemats and star-shaped salt and pepper shakers.

First, I added these great ribbed navy blue placemats (similar, here). I added patriotic star-shaped salt and pepper shakers that I found at my local grocery store, Sunset Foods. These salt and pepper shakers are perfect for any patriotic centerpiece.

Here I added am Uncle Sam nutcracker.

Here, I have added a darling Uncle Sam nutcracker (similar, here) as a patriotic centerpiece as well as a red votive candle holder. Do you see the little flags outside the French doors in the flower boxes on my deck? You could also put little pinwheels in your porch planters for home decor. Patriotic table decorations can be so varied and creative.

Here, I added a red-edged white ceramic dinner plate, silverware and red gingham napkins.  Lastly, there is a red votive candle holder.

I added red striped plates (similar, here and, here). These are from Crate and Barrel many years ago, but here are some similar ones. Pro-tip: Red and white plates can be readily also used for Valentine’s Day and Christmas tablescapes. I also added red and white cotton gingham napkins for a bit of pizazz!

Here's a perfect 4th of July table decor!  There are navy placemats, star-shaped ceramic salt and pepper shaker (so cute!) and even flag-inspired dessert plates.  Lastly, the patriotic centerpiece is an Uncle Sam nutcracker.

Here is the final 4th of July table decor below. I added the cutest American flag-inspired dessert plates (really cute similar ones, here) on top of the red-edged dinner plates. Lastly, for the 4th July table decorations I added red tumblers (similar, here). It took just minutes to put together. It could easily be adapted to a larger group just by increasing the number of place settings.

Here is my 4th of July Table decor.  It has a navy placemat, a red striped dinner plate, a flag-inspired dessert plate and an Uncle Sam nutcracker centerpiece.

When to Decorate for July 4th?

Well, when to decorate for July 4th is a similar question that people ask about when to decorate for Christmas. I think that it’s really playful to decorate as early as Memorial Day. Or, of course, as late as July 4th. I love to set tables early as I get to enjoy them. Mr. G.Q. and I eat here most nights, so I just use the settings and reset it after dinner. Whatever works for you!
