July 4th Tablescape with Sunflower Centerpiece

There’s something truly magical about celebrating July 4th in a beautiful garden setting. This year, we’ve taken a slightly different approach to the traditional red, white, and blue theme by adding a vibrant touch of yellow sunflowers to our table. This unexpected pop of color brings an extra layer of cheer and elegance to our Independence Day festivities.

July 4th Tablescape with Sunflower Centerpiece

My mom’s Charleston garden is the perfect spot for a festive July 4th party. A beautiful block-print tablecloth is adorned with red-rimmed dinner plates, blue and white salad plates, and charming blue checkered napkins.

Add garden clippings around the table for a botanical touch that elevates any tablescape. If you don’t have the perfect greenery in your own garden, check Trader Joe’s for greenery bunches to achieve the look. Tip: Little sprigs of rosemary will repel mosquitos!

Classic July 4th Tablescape

July 4th Floral Centerpiece

The star of the table is a large urn filled with bright yellow sunflowers and American flags. While our urn is an antique find, any large vase—even a clear one—can be used to achieve a similar effect. The addition of extra greenery enhances the natural beauty of the sunflowers, and it’s so easy to do with a few clippings from your own yard.

Add American Flags

Finally, to complete the look, we added small American flags to the place settings and used red glassware to tie the whole theme together. The combination of patterns, colors, and garden elements creates a festive atmosphere perfect for celebrating our favorite summer holiday with friends and family!

So what’s on the menu for your July 4th party? Here’s what we love to serve!

We hope this tablescape inspires you to bring a touch of sunflower brightness to your July 4th celebration. Happy Independence Day!
