Guest Picks: Patriotic Picnic
I love these rustic yet chic chairs for summer. The red pop of color will take you through the season and will be appropriate for all occasions.
Incorporate the American flag into your table setting with these beautiful navy napkins. The best part is that you can reuse them for a different theme later in the year.
These nautical-inspired dishes are the perfect addition to a patriotic party. Not only do they come in multiple colors, but they are meant for the outdoors.
Gingham is an all-American pattern, and these table runners are a great way to incorporate the look without becoming too overwhelming. They're perfect for sprucing up a picnic table.
Cobalt blue glassware will add a punch of color to your table setting. These could also double as candleholders.
Little details make all the difference in a table setting. These red striped straws are a fun and whimsical touch that guests of all ages will appreciate.
I'm usually more drawn to subtle hints at themes, but these American flag pillows would definitely tie into the patriotic theme for Memorial Day or the Fourth of July.
Make sure to include throw blankets like these for when the temperatures cool down outside. Or better yet, have an impromptu picnic out on the grass.
Outdoor dining is all about mood lighting. Candles and lighting are extremely important. String these industrial lights across the backyard for a whimsical touch.
Bring in some patriotic touches with these adorable star ice cube trays. I imagine the cubes in a large pitcher of lemonade.
Large pitchers of lemonade, ice tea and lemon water are a must for barbecues and outdoor dining. Fill them with the star ice cubes, and you're all set!
Stripes are such a fun summer accent and are perfect for a patriotic event. I love these navy blue stripes.
There is nothing more American than an oversize table that fits families of all sizes. This is a great statement piece, and it's sure to stand the test of time (and weather).
Ambience is key for outdoor entertaining. These red lanterns with star cutouts are perfect for a summer soiree.
Big galvanized buckets are great for keeping refreshments cool all day long. Buy a couple for storing adult and child-friendly drinks.
Chevron prints are super popular right now, and this rug is no exception. The jute material gives it a fresh look that's perfect for outdoors.
Tying in the jute elements from some of the other items in this ideabook, these nautical-inspired candleholders are the perfect touch for outdoor dining.
This modern drink dispenser is way too fun to pass up! Fill it with fresh-squeezed lemonade or sangria and enjoy.
These battery-powered paper lanterns will add the finishing touch to your outdoor party. Hang them from the trees or a trellis and enjoy the ambient lighting.Next: Celebrate Patriotism All Year With Americana Style
