Today, I’m sharing our 4th of July farmhouse dining room decor. After the mantle got the Independence Day treatment, I decided the dining room needed some red, white and blue too. My main goal was to keep it wallet-friendly, using what I had on hand. I did buy one little new item, which you’ll see tomorrow in the kitchen.
In the three mason jars, I added some fresh sage and mint from the container herb garden, and some clippings from another plant on the deck. With all the recently rain, the herbs needed to be trimmed back so this was the perfect excuse. And the centerpiece smelled so good too!
With two Target Dollar spot flags, it became the perfect rustic 4th of July centerpiece.
Buffet & Wine Rack
Over on the buffet, I added the white tray (my new favorite accessory!), along with some copper mugs, milk glass and the cobalt vases you saw the Mediterranean tablescape last week.
PS – you might notice that different images have different plants in the vases. I shot this on two separate days. The first, before the rain, I used lantana from the front yard. Unfortunately, all of the heavy rain knocked the blooms off the lantana so by the time I went to shoot the full dining room, there was no more lantana in bloom. Instead, I grabbed a few fern leaves, which work too.
The seersucker runner, from HomeGoods, is still one of my favorites, but it did shrink just a little bit to make it almost too small for the table. Luckily, it fits the buffet perfectly.
I hung some super easy DIY garland from the wine rack to add some more red, white and blue. I didn’t even cut the cocktail napkins this time … just hung them straight over the twine. Three-minute garland for $0? Yes, please!
And, don’t forget to enter the summer giveaway until next Tuesday! Tomorrow, I’ll be the kitchen and another super easy DIY (it involves card stock and Scotch tape).
