Fourth of July Party Table
My husband and I recently built a lemonade stand style table for me to use for parties and shoots. I am so very excited to use it all summer and even into the winter. Do you want me to share the DIY? I recently decorated the back party deck for our annual Fourth of July Party, and I thought it would be fun to decorate my new little stand. And, since I was already decorating, I thought I would style a little 4th of July Party Table and shoot it to share some Independence Day Party Inspiration!
Set the Table
The first thing I do when I style a party table is shop at home. What do I have that I can use to make this table look great without having to spend any additional money?
For this table, I only bought the food. I used a blue and white striped throw blanket on the table top to add a little color and texture. Then, I gathered some patriotic party decor from the house, a bucket with freshly cut hydrangea blooms, and a stand for apple pie and party favors. I also placed my farmhouse style candles on the table. Finally, I hung a banner I bought at Target years ago.
Fourth of July Party Food
Since this was just a photo shoot, I didn’t go crazy with food options. I picked up a festive red, white, and blue ribbon cake. Instead of making or buying a cake topper, I added a few sparklers to the top. You can’t celebrate the Fourth of July without apple pie and ice cold Coca-Cola in glass bottles, so those were on the table too. I added a few frosted cookies, and fresh cut watermelon to the table as well.
Independence Day Party Favors
My kids and niece and nephew truly don’t believe I can have a party or photo shoot without party favors. Because this wasn’t a real party, I didn’t go crazy on “favors” I filled a bucket with some fun sun glasses, firework pop-its, bubble wands, and packages of sparklers.
Fourth of July Party
This party table cost me less than $30, and there was enough food for 10 people, and party favors for 6 kids. I was able to set the table in less than 30 minutes too! I love being able to style a table affordably and easily!
