Adult and Kid July 4th Tablescape Ideas

July 4th Party Tablescape Ideas | CatchMyParty.com

Melissa Newell from Melissanewell.com, is here with tips on how to set up easy DIY adult and kid  tablescapes for July 4th. 

Hi everyone, it’s Melissa here, sharing tips on easy ways to set up your July 4th party tables. I am taking the table from an adult theme to a child's theme in a few easy steps, making the entertaining easy, and giving you more time to spend with the guests!

The first tablescape is for your adult crowd. I used a vintage tablecloth, although not patriotic in pattern, it is in color and looks great on my table. Don’t be afraid to mix and match your linens! Think outside the box!

Children's 4th of July Table Ideas | CatchMyParty.com

Each setting has layered plates, mix and matching the patterns and colors.

Coupled with that, are inexpensive small buckets that hold your cloth napkin, wooden utensils, and a paper fan for each guest.

BONUS TIP: Using these tins allows you to reuse them for Memorial Day, Flag Day, Fourth of July and any other patriotic holiday – great investment!

Children's 4th of July Table Ideas | CatchMyParty.com

Making the switch to the table for the children is super easy. I changed out the plates for some paper plates, keeping the layering pattern going. I added some licorice to the tins as a fun treat, along with their napkins, fans, and wooden utensils.

Along with the festive (store bought) cupcakes, I added a couple of small gumball machines filled with coordinating colors to the centerpiece (mine are just for looks, as I reuse my gumballs for several parties – I like the look but not what they do to my children’s teeth).

Trying to keep with my “less sugar” theme this year, I found some pins for the children that I used for table “scatter.”

Children's 4th of July Table Ideas | CatchMyParty.com

As you can see, changing a few items at your table you can go from an adult theme to a children’s theme in no time flat!

I hope you enjoy your holiday and remember – until next time – Party On Friends!

Patriotic July 4th Paper Wreath DIY

July 4th Patriotic Paper Wreath DIY | CatchMyParty.com

Virginie, from That Cute Little Cake is here with a fantastic paper wreath for July 4th. I love how she distressed the paper stars to make it look like an antique!

One of my little challenges for this year is to make a wreath for my front door for every season/holiday. I just love the welcoming feel a wreath provides.

So of course, I had to come up with a design for the 4th of July! I love the end result and I hope you will too. :)

July 4th Patriotic Paper Wreath DIY | CatchMyParty.com

The paper stars are really easy to make and here is a tutorial to recreate the wreath.

July 4th Patriotic Paper Wreath DIY | CatchMyParty.com

Supplies:

  • Wreath (I used a wire wreath but took out the inner and outer rings to make it thinner)
  • Red, white, blue card stock (I found the lovely blue one at Michael's)
  • Star template download
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun
  • Ribbon
  • Optional: A scorer for easier folding
  • Optional: Distress Ink (I used the color Frayed Burlap)
July 4th Patriotic Paper Wreath DIY | CatchMyParty.com

Directions:

Use the template to cut out stars in three different sizes. For each star, score from one point to opposite inner angle like shown by the line. Repeat for all 5 points. Fold on every line.

Pinch each point to get the 3D effect (it helps to pinch the points two by two).

July 4th Patriotic Paper Wreath DIY | CatchMyParty.com
If you wish to distress the stars, simply use a small sponge or applicator to apply the Distress Ink. I started by making the fold lines dark and then applied some lighter stains in between the points.

Once you have a selection of stars ready, you can hot glue them to the wire frame. Use a ribbon to hang (I used red burlap).

Summer BBQ Tiered Serving Tray DIY

BBQ Tiered Serving Tray DIY | CatchMyParty.com

I wanted to make a quick and easy tiered serving tray that would look great at any outdoor summer BBQ! I made this in about five minutes using some plastic SOLO Squared plates and bowls, two shot glasses (you can use small candle stick holders instead), and some Glue Dots. I love how picnic-y and fun it turned out!

I set mine up as a chips and guacamole tray, but this would work great as a cupcake or dessert stand too.

BBQ Tiered Serving Tray DIY | CatchMyParty.com

  SUPPLIES:
  • 1 large (10.24 inch) SOLO Squared plastic plate
  • 1 medium (9 inch) SOLO Squared plastic plate
  • 1 SOLO Squared plastic bowl
  • 2 shot glasses
  • Glue Dots

BBQ Tiered Serving Tray DIY | CatchMyParty.com

DIRECTIONS:

Add four Glue Dots to the bottom of the shot glass. Affix to large plate to be your base.

BBQ Tiered Serving Tray DIY | CatchMyParty.com

Wrap 8-10 Glue Dots over the top of the shot glass and continue to stack.

And here's the finished product! It is actually quite stable, but just be careful not to add too much heavy food in the top tier.

What I love about this idea is that you can make different variations depending on what you need, then you take them apart, and make more!
