Happy Monday, friends! We’re
sweating living it up at the water park for my son’s birthday today, but I wanted to throw together a patriotic table for the holiday later this week. Independence Day has always been one of my favorite holidays…I love being in a mass of strangers, gazing up at fireworks, all of us united by our feelings of pride and patriotism. And that dang Lee Greenwood song gets me every time!
We have plans to cheer on FC Dallas and watch the fireworks Wednesday night, but the day will be spent chilling in the backyard. This easy table is perfect for hot dogs and swimming.
The place settings are inexpensive bamboo mats and striped paper plates from Ikea. Mason jars are my favorite for Summertime meals.
Place cards are tied to festive napkins (bought on clearance after the holiday a few years ago) with pieces of jute, and I jump at any chance to use stripey straws!
