How can you characterize farmhouse style? Iconic elements for this design trend, often associated with warmth and simplicity, can include galvanized metals, wire baskets, and natural textures. The farmhouse trend is booming not only in the home décor sector, but also for home parties. We are sharing some simple ideas below for creating a patriotic farmhouse tablescape for 4th of July parties, Memorial Day parties and more!
Choose a Variety of Textures & Patterns
One of the easiest ways to create visual interest for a farmhouse patriotic tablescape is through the selection and variation of textures and patterns. I stumbled upon these fun dessert plates and decided to use them as my jumping off point for design. When setting each place setting, I started with textured white paper chargers, added red ceramic dinner plates, then a burlap napkin with embroidered details and topped it off with these fun farmhouse imagery dessert plates. I think the overall statement is patriotic with its reds, whites and blues, without being literal with the iconic flag imagery.
Tips for Designing a Patriotic Farmhouse Centerpiece
Farmhouse décor elements often include distressed wood, wire baskets, galvanized metals and natural materials. When choosing a farmhouse centerpiece, look for baskets, vases, or wooden boxes to use as a base. Then fill the base(es) with natural, free flowing florals and greenery. To add a patriotic element to the centerpiece, look for a distressed wooden base like ours, distressed stars or flag elements.
Add Subtle American Flag Elements to the Tablescape
We added American flag elements to our Patriotic farmhouse design sparingly. Distressed stars were placed to the left of each place setting, red star paper straws in beverage glasses, and simple flags to the top of our centerpiece. Through these simple décor choices, the tablescape reads patriotic, without including the flag throughout each major component. When designing your patriotic farmhouse tablescape, look for items that you can use in place settings and centerpieces.
