Create a Patriotic Place Setting


Make your 4th of July get-together the talk of the table (and maybe even the town) with these easy DIY party-planning ideas. They don’t require a whole lot of handiwork, just some basic household supplies, as well as some plates, cups and napkins from yours truly. 

Festive Flower Vases

These are the supplies you'll need:

Step 1: Secure a strip of washi tape over the bottom and up the sides of a Chinet® Cut Crystal® cup. Tuck the ends of the tape inside the cup for a seamless look.

Step 2: Repeat step one until you achieve your desired look. Feeling creative? Mix and match colors and patterns for something extra unique.

Step 3: Fill with your favorite fresh flowers for easy, DIY 4th of July décor!

Liberty Cups

These are the supplies you'll need:

Only one step involved here. Dress up your cups for 4th of July with fun letters and patriotic phrases (that can also help guests keep track of their glasses). 

Here are few ideas to help get you started:

  • Land of the Free
  • Home of the Brave
  • HBD, USA!
  • Independence
  • Stars & Stripes
  • Oh, Say Can You See
  • Let Freedom Ring


Patriotic Napkin Ties

These are the supplies you'll need:

Step 1: Lay napkin flat on the table. Fold in half vertically.

Step 2: Place cutlery side-by-side on top of the napkin. Then, wrap a piece of washi tape around the flatware, securing the flatware to the napkin.

Step 3: Wrap a piece of twine around the washi tape and tie in a bow. For a different look, experiment with using decorative ribbon or string in place of twine.
