For summer, I like colorful, casual tables. From Memorial Day to the second week of July, I am partial to red, white, and blue. I started with my cotton blue and white tablecloth with fine red lines.
My patriotic table for 2017 has red dollar store bandannas for place mats, white china, red-handled utensils, and mason jars for drinks.
I folded the blue checked napkins in half into a triangle. I folded the two points on the sides in and flipped the napkins over with the remaining point facing down on the plates. I put the cutlery on the napkin and wrapped them with a jute string. I tied a bow in the string. This would work well if you have a buffet too.
The centerpiece is a red pitcher with white flowers and a small flag on a white plate flanked by two patriotic teddy bears.
On top of the corner cabinet is a third little bear.
The three bears were a present from a friend a couple of years ago.
