Mix and Match: Settings to Celebrate the Stars and Stripes

Oh, how we Southern ladies love to celebrate birthdays—especially when we aren’t the ones getting older! America turns 239 this weekend, and we think that’s a perfect reason to throw a party. Plan an outdoor gathering with an all-American menu—hot dogs, hamburgers, and lots of ice cream—and turn the table into a tribute to the red, white, and blue.

This Fourth of July, step up your table setting, and show off your American spirit while entertaining friends and family. If you’re familiar with our Mix & Match stories, you know we show you one inspiration plate two ways—one casual, one elegant—but today we’re also throwing in a festive and fun third look just for the occasion!

Although these settings are perfect for the weekend’s patriotic celebration, their appeal will last throughout the season. Mix and match pieces with your own creative twists in the summer months that follow the Fourth to create more understated but distinctly summer red-white-and-blue color schemes. From sweet and easygoing to subtly stunning, reflect the many sides of summer with your choice of tablescapes.
