Sweet Southern July 4th Tablescape

This year's Fourth of July tablescape is a combination of all of my favorite things: gingham, cupcakes, berries, and Dishie - of course. The sweetest little cherry on top is that it was featured recently on Southern Bride! We're just smitten!

When Paige with Two Peas Designs tasked me with designing the table settings for this inspiration shoot, I knew I had to incorporate farmer's markets in some way. Our sweet little home in Winter Garden, FL is also home to America's Favorite Farmer's Market (fifth? year and counting!) and all of my summer memories for the last almost decade involve weekly family visits to the farmers market for lots of great produce. The result of this inspiration: BERRY BASKETS!

They make just the cutest table settings, and are a perfect (and yummy) way to display your place cards (like Paige's cuties here)!

These FLORALS by Flowers by Lesley are just so beautiful! I've been over the moon in love with anemones lately and these purple ones are stealing my heart. also love how this bouquet includes other complimentary colors - just because red, white, and blue are the colors of our flag doesn't mean they have to be the only colors on our table!

G O L D // Our Magnolia Collection China was just perfect for this setting. Its clean lines and pretty edges did a great job of accenting the table, while letting the other pieces like those sweet flag cupcake wrappers and berry baskets take center stage. We also love how our Luxe Gold dipped White flatware added that pretty bit of white to the setting in an unexpected location! And the texture from our Ivory Scalloped Chargers still has us swooning.

Last but not least, it's no secret we're obsessed with colored glassware, and our perfectly BLUE Vintage Cobalt Goblets were the perfect finishing touch to this stunning table, and a great compliment to that perfectly southern gingham print from Over the Top Rental Linens. I know I've said it time and time again, but GLASSWARE, Y'ALL! It makes the biggest difference to the design of a table and is such an easy upgrade! We LOVE the result of these blue stems among those red blooms. Nikki Ogden of Nikki Ogden Photography did such a great job capturing it all

Happy Independence Day friends! May yours be a day filled with fun eats and fun friends gathered around your table (or in our case, pool - it's so hot here in FL), Happy Fourth! XO - Sheena
