7 Fabulous Fourth Of July Centerpiece Ideas

7 Fabulous Fourth Of July Centerpiece Ideas

I love to see the flag waving of the United States of America.  And I love that that flag waves so proudly on every occasion, especially the Fourth of July.  The family gatherings, picnics, sporting celebrations and all the other ways we commemorate Independence Day all so beautifully and dramatically end with spectacular fireworks.

I had so much fun scouring the internet for fabulous table centerpieces and I think I've picked out some of the best in the seven shown below.  I'm certainly inspired.  And I hope you will be too.  

 

Why do we have to wait until evening to set the sparkles.  Why not have two sets of sparkles:  one to start the celebration and another one for the evening.  Add two groupings of sparkles on the table to wet everyone's expectation of how the evening will be greeted. 

This Fourth of July table centerpiece is by far my most favorite.  I love its simplicity, yet dramatic effect. And I'll be out this weekend looking for blue hydrangeas and small flags!!

As always, Susan, from Between Naps on The Porch, created another outstanding centerpiece.  The three hurricane lanterns each in colors of the flag of the United States is also simplistic, yet dramatic.  Check her website to see them all lit up for the evening.  

Humm, hydrangeas again for a centerpiece but all in white.  You really can't loose with these stunning flowers.

For you nautical loving folks, this boat loaded centerpiece is not only lovely but down right fun.  Did you see the tea candle in the miniature lounge chair?  A lovely touch of levity to a very special day.

Light the way with these lighthouse-style hurricane lanterns.  They're much more casual in style than the ones above, and they invoke a nautical touch.  So very relaxing.

Isn't this an absolutely adorable bouquet centerpiece.  In fact, I would say it's stunning blue and white hydrangeas hugging the red roses is perfect for a small table dining.
